Yet this is not from Apple itself, a company called Computer Choppers give more life in the new iPod Shuffle. Not only pimping it with engravings you can actually choose a variaty of colors ranging from $129 to plating it for $200. Its still a nice deal to costumize you iPod Shuffle but still, will you buy the new iPod Shuffle?

iPhone: Finally a COPY & PASTE

Finally! After so many OS updates iPhone will have a Copy & paste function on the upcoming OS 3.0. On the other hand, still no text forwarding?

BTW, you can get an app that let you copy and paste, but the downside is it is only activated when you has a keyboard in it.

Another reason I hate the new iPod Shuffle

Ok ok, here are the things why I hate the new iPod Shuffle:

1. Its stupidly plain

2. There are only three buttons (+/- volume and the center button)

3. Buttons in earphones

4. Can’t use other earphones

Hey here’s a new one,

5. its so much user-friendly (ok, I’m being sarcastic)

Yeah the iPod Shuffle controls, it’s not that hard to memorize but hey, the first time you use it, it’s’ not Apple.

Hacked iTunes Gift Card

The iTunes Gift Card got hacked by the Chinese Geeks, actually they cracked the algorithms that generates the code. Sweet right? Well the sweetest part of all is when you can buy it for less than $3 per card, now we are talking legally pirated song.

I hope Apple will act fast in this issue or at least change their formula to protect buyers, artist and themselves.

New iPod Shuffle

shuffle-silver

The small iPod Shuffle got even smaller, so small it’s just a size of  the usual flash drive we see in the market. It’s 1.8 x0.7 inch in size and just 0.38 ounce a 0.17 ouch lighter than the 1GB iPod Shuffle.

The buttons are now in the earphones so the only thing that you can control in the unit itself is the hold switch, so if you loose your earphone your Shuffle is useless. It has a VoiceOver which tells you the name of the song and the artist, I just wonder if this is only available for iTunes songs only, you know what I mean, like the Genius. Sadly, there are two colors to choose from, black and silver, but don’t worry, it’s still iPod (-_-) The battery now only has 10hrs. of playback time, a 2hrs shorter than the old shuffle.

The new iPod Shuffle is about Php. 4,190.oo in the Apple Store Philippines.
