Product Name: Apple iPod Shuffle
Submitted by:  Marie Ynami Redlands, CA
Rating: 10
Where to buy:  Amazon.com

Description:  The Apple iPod Shuffle has 1 GB of storage capacity. It is small – measures only 1.62 x 1.07 x 0.41 inches (WxHxD) and weighs 0.55 ounces.  It has a clip that is convenient because you can use it to attach the iPod Shuffle to your pocket or any part of your clothing. It also has a battery indicator light that lets you see if your iPod needs recharging. When fully charged, it can play up to 12 hours. Charge time is about 3-4 hours. It has a circular control panel that lets you navigate through the contents of your iPod Shuffle. It comes with a USB dock and earphones as well.

Review: I like it a lot because of its size and the convenience of the clip. I use it to upload not only music but also podcasts and other audios. I use it around the house especially when I am doing some house cleaning, laundry or when I am busy in the kitchen. I enjoy listening to it when I go on my daily walks too.

Criticism: The only thing I do not like about it is the controls since there is no “menu or directory” so to speak. I just press, the forward button or back button to get to what I want to listen to. I love its size, but sometimes I get scared because I might accidentally stick it in the washing machine with clothes that need washing.
