Ok – I am a new Apple fan (made the big switch last year to Mac from Windows) and, for all the problems it has, I love the iPod and iTunes. I have owned several iPods over the years and use my Touch daily for pretty much everything – calendaring, email, web browsing, music, games, etc. I also have a shuffle that I use when I work out. But I heard today that Apple released a redesigned Shuffle.
As a parent of young children, there’s no way that I would purchase this for me as I can imagine it going immediate into the mouth of a little one. The older model shuffle was small, but it was bulky enough and square enough that it wasn’t a choking hazard. This is basically smaller and more round than a package of PEZ candy. Note the comparison between this and “choking hazard measurement device” – a toilet paper tube…(sorry for the rough photoshop work)
