A few months ago I got an Ipod Shuffle. I got it for a really good price - about $10(thanks to a discount at Indigo when you sign up for an Audible subscription). Now that I've had it for a while, they come out with the Ipod Nano. It's small, it's cute, it has a screen, and it holds 8x as much as my Shuffle. I really love my Shuffle, but sometimes I sure do wish it had a screen.
Let's face it, the Shuffle is just a gateway drug to bigger more expensive Ipods.
