Apple unveiled the tinynew talking iPod shuffle yesterday. USA Today has already published an iPodshuffle review. USA Today gives the new iPod shuffle 3 out of 4 stars. Reviewer Edward C. Baig, who had a pre-production iPod shuffle for the past week, likes the smallness of the new shuffle but also highlights all the compromises that come with the tiny size.
The VoiceOver sounds robotic, but works and keeps you informed of what song is actually playing on the iPod shuffle.
On the down side battery life is about 1 hour lower than on the 2G shuffle and you need the special ear buds that come with the new iPod shuffle as they carry the remote to control the device.

There is a lot of controversy on if the new shuffle is hit or a miss.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
