Do You Like The New Ipod Shuffle?

Send Everyday EcardsApple has done it again! It has come with a brand new edition of the Ipod Shuffle. The storage on this is 4 GB. Donna walked into my cubicle with this news. She’s a music freak and if there’s anything new on the music shelf, she’s the person you should tap to know more about the details of the product, the price, the features etc. She informed me that this Ipod was unveiled without much fanfare and it looks really sleek. This is a really small one and has only the shuffle mode switch on the body of the device. The controls are on the earplug cord. The disadvantage to this is that you cannot use an earplug that is not Apple manufactured. Donna thinks it’s just a marketing ploy of the company to push the earplugs it manufactures. She’s not a big fan of the Apple earplugs.

But she’s all game for this special feature on this Ipod: it talks to you! Donna explained to me that it has a switch on the remote, a long press, which can make the device tell you what song is being played and your playlist. She squealed, “You can choose from a variety of language options too!” Not a feature that I would use more regularly, I reminded her. But that didn’t do anything to bring down her enthusiasm level. She told me straight that the product was not for me and I can very well continue to use my old portable music system! “They are so obsolete that even if you throw them, there’s hardly anyone who would bother to pick them up!” I smiled and replied, “I’ll pick them before anyone does.” Exasperated, she left the room! If you think of the world about this new Ipod Shuffle from the Apple stable, you can write in your support for Donna.

  1. Ipod is quite popular and good for Donna who have the newest one. Products are made for people who loves it. Just like that Bob and your best friend all have your own loved devices. Btw, your blog is more and more entertaining, thanx for a good joke card!

  2. Editor Bob, you blog full of stories of daily lives and tips for people. English vocabulary you used are so vivid … we read it learned a lot:) I liked your post and Donna seems to be a very elegant woman with a musical taste. I think the joke is this one “I’ll pick them before anyone does.” ” 🙂 sharp humor.

  3. B. IPODS are fine-new or old. That’s cool how the new ones talk, too. I loved your sweet description of Donna’s excitement over it. But I still like to put in CDS. I even still do tapes and albums. Something about touching these objects, hearing the album’s crackle, pop and skip sounds or reading the CDs’, albums’ covers and enclosed booklets is such a pleasure for me. Like reading your cereal box while you eat your cereal in the morning.
    Now there is all this ta do about books on-line- turning the pages, etc., fun. How clever. I mean whole libaries are now on-line. Very helpful for research purposes. But give me an old fashioned book anyday- where I can hold it in my hands- don’t have to use any electricity and feel the pages, touch the illustrations, photographs. Same with games- computer be damned. Give me board games where I can handle the pieces and move around the board. Playing cards, too, are great. The sound of shuffling, dealing them, is exciting. And I am a chronic solitaire player- have to play it everyday. Gets me going when I feel those playing cards in my hands. My husband shows me the many solitaire games on-line, but I have difficulty manuevering the cursor and remembering what steps I have to take to move the cards around. I am just not good at any computer games. My nieces and nephews are whizzes at all of it as their generation grew up with the computer. It’s all good. But I’m with you, B., don’t knock the old for the new. L.

  4. The new iPod shuffle is talking, or should I say… Voice Over. Now you can track it and join the conversation with your friends. Given its size, the next generation will be built in the ear buds.
