It doesn't matter what it is. It's from Apple. So it's cute. And cute has intrinsic worth, right?
I love my iPod. I really, really do. I love it so much, I went out and bought Giuia one. (a pink one).
But the new iPod shuffle just strikes me as silly. OK, so if all you want is a half a gig of music to carry around, I suppose it's fine. But a lot of the people who ran right out and bought one were mostly already owners of the grown-up iPod. It's not particularly innovative - the "shuffle" feature has been on the iPod pretty much since the beginning.
But what scares me is that the ad for the iPod shuffle actually says "Do not eat iPod shuffle." (It's there. Scroll down.)
Mac users frighten me.
