The new super teeny tiny iPod shuffle is easily the coolest edition to date. This version has no controls on the unit itself, the the new standard headphones have a built in button with pause, skip, and previous controls. It will also read you the names of your playlists, artists and song titles in it’s weird little OK Computer voice. It’s a little smaller than a usb thumb drive, made of the same metal as the mac book line, and holds 1,000 songs (about as much at the original ipod).
While we’re probably going to stick with our iPhone for the moment, this would make a great addition for running, snowboarding, or any physical activity where it’s only a matter of time before we drop the phone and break it.
