shuffle [Nov. 10th, 2006|02:26 pm]

My ipod was stolen several months ago. Sad. Now when I listen to audiobooks, I have to burn them to CD. I'm holding out on buying a new one until I've paid off some more debt...

But the new IPod Shuffle is only 79 dollars, and it has a gig of storage. And it's pretty much ideal for exercising with.

Whaddya think? Should I buy one?

For 79.00, if you do not like it, you can get something better later.

But I'm getting one for my cousin because she likes to walk, and she lives in New Orleans, and it's small so she can hide it well and not get robbed :-D

I have one of the older shuffles, and I admitt that I love it. Its only downfall is not having a way to physically see what is playing. I try to put my playlist together in the order I want to hear it in.

If you do wait to get something else, I'd like to suggest a Red Nano. Read more about why here: http://www.joinred.com/

I think that the iPod Shuffle is the greatest invention ever made. You hook it up to the computer every day, dump on that day's music, and you're off. It depends a little bit on your style, though -- I don't like to mess with menus and try to decide what I listen to and when, once I'm in the car; I like to make a long playlist beforehand and then forget it. And (when I bought it) 1GB for $99?! Best $99 spent, ever!

(I will mention one thing that maybe affects its utility with books: it's not so easy to start playing from a spot in the middle of a track.)
