The cool factor from Apple has out done itself again. The new iPod shuffle is like an aluminum matchbook with a side clip. The new iPod will store 1GB of audio…or about 240 songs. The anodized aluminum chassis for the Shuffle contributes less then half an ounce to the overall weight and wont scratch up like the previous, plastic model. Apple includes a slick USB dock station to allow for easy sync to iTunes. Included in this small package is a Shuffle slide switch for even more randomness so that any one of the 240 songs could be selected at anytime. For just a shade under $80USD this little iPod Shuffle MP3 player will be available in October.
