|Apple computer has made some interesting product announcements in the last couple of weeks. One product that’s caught my eye is the iPod Shuffle. I’ve been thinking about this a lot and talking about it a lot to my friends, who are getting annoyed by now.
There is a lot of hype about the product. You may ask, “Matt, why is it that you want an iPod Shuffle. You already have a 10GB model. Why?”
Well, to start with, I use my current iPod as many between 2-4 hours a day. On many days, I use it at work to provide me with some relaxing classical music at my desk. On these occasions, I can be really picky about what I am listening to. And I am constantly rating my music (specifically so I know what is ready to take off of the player.)
There are other occasions that I am not so picky with what I listen to. For example, at the gym, I just need a good beat. I’m not going to need to listen to a specific playlist, I just want tunes. And, in those situations, I want something that is lightweight and durable. Something that I don’t have to worry about if it were to fall on to the treadmill.
I've already decided that I'll use my iPod Shuffle for rock and my "big" iPod for classical music and audiobooks.
So, I called the Apple Store here in Cincinnati and they explained to me that they do not know when they will have the iPod Shuffle back in stock. Apparently, their first shipment sold out in just 2 hours.
Apparently, I’m not the only person with this obsession.
