iPod Shuffle. Minimalist to the max.
Yep. They did it again.
It’s smaller, better, faster stronger… oh wait.
Blah blah blah, it’s latest little gimmick is that it uses VoiceOver technology, which enables the Shuffle to speak your song titles, artists and playlist names. Albeit in a Apple Robot voice. Screen? Who needs a screen?
And seriously, they managed to make it freaking tiny. I mean this thing is the size of the remote that used to hang off the earphones of my MiniDisc player. Oh wait, they even did move the controls this new iPod to be on the earphones like my old MiniDisc player. Apple is crazy though, they are updating their product line like there is no tomorrow. New models annouced pretty much monthly now. If you snooze too long on this one, there will be an even smaller one out – probably by Friday week.
I totally don’t need one, but I kinda want one.
