|Weighing less than half an ounce, the wafer-thin Apple iPod shuffle 4th Generation lets you take your music anywhere. Slide your finger over the ring control and press the play button in the center. With no screen, the iPod shuffle 2GB mp3 player relies on a simple physical interface to provide the music you want when you want it. This is not a full-function media player, rather, it's a dedicated music player that does one thing and does it very well. You cannot watch a movie on an iPod shuffle, but you can certainly enjoy the soundtrack. Plug in your headphones and start listening. With no screen to drive, you have plenty of battery life.|

The iPod Shuffle returns to its big-button glory days, only this time around it offers support for playlists, audiobooks, podcasts, Genius Mixes, and a multilingual VoiceOver feature that announces track information, battery status, and menu navigation.
The 2GB capacity can't hold much; there's no headphone remote nor radio; the track controls tend to get pinched when clipping the iPod to your clothes; and the chances of you accidentally running it through the washing machine are quite high.
The iPod Shuffle's buttons are back, and the lightest, smallest MP3 player on the planet is now better than ever.
