As a budget-minded freelancer I was thrilled when Apple introduced their new affordable iPod® shuffle, "the world’s most wearable digital music player", priced at just $79. The adorable iPod shuffle is just half a cubic inch in volume and weighs in at just half an ounce with a built-in clip. Apple’s pioneering shuffle feature lets me enjoy a continuous mix of my favorite songs anywhere I go. iPod shuffle contains one gigabyte of flash memory, holds up to 240 songs and is available in five fashionable colors: blue, pink, green, orange and the original silver. How cool is that!
