I'll stick with bananas
My friend Dan draws our attention this Strib review of the iPod Shuffle. (And if it weren't for Dan, I might not have ever even heard about this new little gizmo designed to make you think you need something new.) Andy is lusting over the Shuffle right now as well. (I suspect that if he came within 25 feet of an Apple Store, he wouldn't be able to escape it's draw.)
While my old MP3 player doesn't come with the hard disk storage space of the iPod (although it's quite a bit older and it does have a significant amount of storage space for its time), I can still put it on random mode and have all the tunes I want shuffled. No, it's not the size of a stick of gum, and no, it doesn't have the "coolness" factor that iPods currently do, but I guess I just don't need one more of that type of little gizmo.
