The loveliest iPod yet
If you've been living in a (broadband-less) cave for the past couple of days you may not have heard that Apple has released a slew of iPod updates (along with a new version of iTunes).
All three designs are attractive, but by far the most gorgeous is the completely redesigned iPod Shuffle. Clad in brushed aluminium this triumph of miniaturisation weighs in at just over half-an-ounce. Its dimensions are about as small as you can get while retaining a play button and a headphone socket! It has plenty of room (and battery) to play over 10 hours of music, and the £55 price tag includes an elegant docking station.
It is a superb example of what Apple does so well. I'm still trying to think of a good reason for getting one!
