This story, "Review: Second-generation iPod shuffle" was originally published by PCWorld.
Apple replaces its compact flash-based music player with a second-generation shuffle that's half the size of its predecessor. The silver shuffle comes in only one capacity -- 1GB -- and adds a built-in clip to easily attach the music player to your clothing. The headphone jack also serves as the connection to sync and charge the shuffle. In September 2007, Apple added four more colors to the iPod shuffle line; otherwise capacity, battery life, and price remain unchanged from the 2006 models.
- Rugged finish
- Plenty loud
- Attractive price
- Cute as a button
- Good battery life
- No Apple Lossless support
- Audio quality not as good as some other iPods
- Small size makes iPod harder to use
