"The competitively priced iPod Shuffle has a dead-simple user interface with satisfying tactile controls, and its integrated belt clip provides a handy way to keep track of the player. The Shuffle is available in five, metallic colors, and the package includes a cute little syncing cradle."
"The iPod Shuffle has no screen, so there's no way to navigate easily among artists, albums, or playlists. And it only offers so-so sound quality. The player might be too small for some users, and nonstandard USB syncing takes away from its plug-and-go appeal."
"If you like your music playback simple and your device nearly invisible, the second-generation iPod Shuffle will suit you well. But absentminded users should steer clear of this easy-to-misplace player."

I love my iPod 2nd generation Shuffle! The sturdy make up of the casing and clip is terrific for someone like me who tends to drop things. At the gym, when it is clipped to my arm, I appreciate being able to look down and see the buttons and switches I need to hit while in my euphoric endorphin induced state.
Sadly I am on a trip overseas for six months and left my beautiful back in the states. When I popped into a store to buy another iPod shuffle and was shown the "new generation" I recoiled... and said "Not THAT One!". It was way too tiny... where are my beloved buttons??? The salesperson laughed a bit as he explained that the one I like is no longer made... what????
I told him that I prefer the 2nd generation because the size isn't so tiny that I have to stop to look at it while exercising to know exactly what I'm doing, and that it is easy to hold and maneuver. In my opinion size DOES matter. Yes, I do think that some things (including mobile phones) can be too small to be friendly to a variety of ranges of dexterity. I marched out of the store and went directly online to find a used one, and thank goodness there are some out there.
In just a few days, I'll be clipping my new (old generation) iPod shuffle on and sweating away while easily operating a decently sized piece of musicware that in my opinion wasn't didn't need "fixing" in terms of aesthetic design or usability in terms of size and buttons. And this facts, folks, makes me smile.
The Apple iPod Shuffle 2nd edition is the most simple, easy to use and stylish mp3 player today. It works like a charm, it can hold hours and hours of music, the button layout is easy to control even when your not looking at the unit, it can go for days and days on 1 charge, and it's great for workouts. I have owned 2 of these in different colors and now I'm ordering a 3rd because it's that good of a product. The only downfall is that you have to use iTunes to manage the music, and most people HATE iTunes. Other than that, it's a near perfect item. In fact is was SUCH a great product that those idiots at Apple decided to release a completely butchered 3rd edition iPod Shuffle and now people hate it so much that they are looking for these old 2nd edition iPods, but alas they are discontinued. Go Apple.... -_-
Super durable, holds up great during strenuous workouts. Easy to use, button locations are easy to find blindly. Convenient small package with a sturdy clip to attach to clothing or belt. I wear it under my clothing all the time you can barely tell its there, earbuds are almost more obvious when tucked away. I never have go without my podcasts except when swimming or other water related activities. Much prefer to the new gen 3 version that required special headphones with the controllers on it. Only downside is that there is no screen to see whats playing. It does indicate in Itunes if selection has been played or not though, which I find very handy as I primarily use it to follow my podcasts and the news of the day.
I really wish Apple hadn't 'upgraded' to the new version.
i hae purched 2 ipod nanos love them . and two ipos shuffles 2 nd gen. the shuffle holds a ton of songs at least 250, maby more, they are indestructable
perfect for my 5 year old grandson and my 26 year old daughter , you sync with your itunes library and play lists . you hear the song you love period and unlike cd's no skipping crappy songs cause ther are none ublike radio no endless top 10 dj;s talking and commercials , the shuffle is light weight and clips anyware great loud sound perfect.
While this is the older (obsolete) model from iPod, I believe it is among the finest. Its beauty is in its simplicity. I purchased my original iPod to use when I go running. The large circular button is easy to find without having to stop and look at your iPod to control its features. Additionally, the built in clip holds it firmly to either your shirt or shorts. Once you memorize the position of the buttons, you can easily FF or REV and song you like or don't like with one click. I have since purchased additional units for family and friends who work out. Its so light weight, you hardly know its there. Too bad the changed the model, this one still has its niche.
