An iPod That Talks

Image from Apple

Presenting the new iPod Shuffle. Remarkably smaller than an AA battery and can actually store up to 1,000 songs! How can a small thing like this holds a thousand songs? Beats me. Well, they wouldn't call it "the world's smallest music player" for nothing.

All of the controls is on the earphone cord making it easier to navigate. You can now switch playlists with it compared to the old Shuffle who randomly pick songs for you and its VoiceOver feature lets you HEAR the name of the song and artist playing. It can speak 14 languages: English, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish. Cool.

The new Shuffle has stainless steel clip that can be securely attached anywhere and can have it engraved, too. It also comes with an aluminum case in silver or black. Double cool.

Nice! I would not mind getting this for $79 but with gazillion things inside my bag and its teeny-weeny size not to mention my short memory make it impossible not to lose it or break it. Hell it might get thrown along with the trash. Yikes! Scary thought. I'm still happy with my dilapidated but reliable iPod "lolo" Video, thank you very much.
