[quote=“TheLostSwede”]The new iPåd Sh(it)uffle is a pile of utter shite…
No controls on the unit itself, there are no replacement headphones from Apple, you can’t use your own headphones, as the controls are built into the Apple headphones, you can’t use 3rd party remotes, as they don’t work, but you can spend $79 (the same price as the player) for Apple’s in-ear headphones that’ll work with it…
I mean seriously?
And on top of that, unless you got a new Mac with the latest operating system, you’ll get a really crappy computerized voice for the VoiceOver feature, it only sounds good on the new Mac’s…
Apple can stick the Sh(it)uffle as far as as they can ram it imho…[/quote]
I have it and I love it.
[ul]Smallest ipod in the world, has a coolness factor
4GB more than enough for me
Computer voice is great, means I can put playlists on there like for my Chinese lessons. I really don’t care what it sounds like, it’s not reading me bedtime stories, it’s an audio menu
You are incorrect about the headphones, Apple (and stores that sell Apple in Taipei) sell replacement headphones for 1000NT ($30 USD)[/ul]
Having said all that Sony has new wearable headphones (in the Sony Store in the Sogo store @ Fuxing) which also look really nice, no dangling cables at all, just a wire back around the back of your head to keep them on. I have no use for the Sony ones because I just got the nano, but I want them nevertheless.
