    Apple has ditched their 'clip' design and gone back to the original ipod shuffle 'tall and thin' design! They've removed any buttons from the actual device and instead put them onto the earphones...

    I'm on the fence with this one. I like the idea of controlling it by the headphones, but I think the beauty of the ipod shuffle was it was good for people like my Mum who can't get their head round a click wheel and just wanted a high quality *simple* iPod, and I just don't think she'd be able to use those new earphones

    not always sure that small is better though and i'm not sure how robust the controls on the cord will be - or maybethats the entire point

    The other thing I don't like about it (even though I'm an Apple bigot ) is the voice navigation of your playlists. I've got a couple hundred playlists on my regular iPod. Can't imagine the boredom of having Izzy the iTunes announcer speaking each of those playlists. Especially if the one I want is at the bottom.

    I definatley agree on both of those points. I can't help but think it looks really boring too. Major let-down by apple on this one I think.... (I am shocked that I actually have a bad word to say about apple!)

    I think it works the same way Teresa. As far as I can tell it has a clip on the back.
