Dave Approved: iPod Shuffle

Posted on Wednesday, January 26th, 2005

Dave!What can I say? For two days I have worn my iPod Shuffle constantly, removing it only to shower and sleep (though last night I fell asleep while listening to it, so I guess I'm wearing it even then). It's so small and light that I don't even know it's there. It's so easy to operate that I find myself wearing it underneath my sweatshirt or over-shirt and just operating it through the fabric. It's almost become another appendage, and the ability to listen to music at a second's notice wherever and whenever I feel like it is nothing less than magic.

In many ways I feel that iPod Shuffle fulfills on the promise of the original iPod: it has firmly integrated music into my everyday life. I work with it. I paint with it. I cook with it. I eat with it. I brush my teeth with it. I walk to the post office with it... I live with it.

In fact, I find myself enamored with it so much that my original 40 gigabyte iPod has just been demoted to a spare hard drive. The iPod Shuffle is a much better fit for how I want to experience to my music. As I type this I am listening to Along Comes a Woman by Chicago, a song I haven't listened to in ages... all thanks to the "random auto-fill" feature that appears in iTunes when I plug iPod Shuffle into my laptop. Gotta love that little thrill you get from rediscovering an old song you've forgotten about.

Ooh! There it goes again... Drive by The Cars just came on!

    That’s one advantage of the iPod Mini – it’s quite a bit smaller than the normal iPod (my housemate got a 40GB 4G iPod last week) and lighter too. I don’t think I’d get a Shuffle but I do like the Mini’s smaller form factor.

    Schwartzenegger, from Commando. What a killer movie that was. “Where’s Sully?” “I let him go.”

  3. Dave2 says:

    Ah yes, Commando is a classic alright! I was waffling between the “Green Berets” quote and another favorite:

    “You’re a funny man, Sully, I like you. That’s why I’m going to kill you last.”
