My iPod shuffle showed up the other day as promised. This thing is so much better than the Rio. The sound quality is amazing, especially when you consider that it’s about the size of a stick of gum and weighs less than an ounce. It’s hard to really understand just how small it is until you hold it.

Matthew couldn’t wait to get his hands on it:

Matthew and the shuffle

So far, 1 GB is plenty of space. Apple says that’s 240 songs with is probably pretty close. I usually estimate 1 MB per minute of music so 1 GB would be 1,000 minutes, or almost 17 hours. Filling it with music only takes a few minutes. Sunday I uploaded about 4 hours of music and it only took 2 minutes.

I just love new toys…

  1. I think he was way too sleepy for that. I just can’t wait for him to grow up and laugh at this.

    “You mean it’s the size of a pack of gum and ONLY holds 1 Gig. Next you’ll tell me you had to walk to school in the snow, up hill both ways…”

  2. Your incessant need for maintaining G-rated humor around here saddens me profoundly. Put one of those tiny, mini-bar bottles of Scotch in his lap and dress him in overalls and THEN take his picture.

  3. Wait till you try to explain the concept of carbon paper and typewriters, and how you had to bang REALLY HARD on the keys of a manual typewriter to get it to make three carbon copies…
