    I wouldnt part with my Shuffle for the world. The people who knock it are the people who dont understand for the most part

    1) people dont look at the screen even when they have one on these smaller MP3 players

    2) people dont realize how utterly useless the screens ON these small MP3 players are.

    3) people dont know how to manage their fucking music to make sure they dont put songs they wont listen to on them.

    Way too often I have friends who’s creative and iRiver players have cracked screens because of a accidental drop on the floor or what have you at the gym. Hell the number of times I have dropped my Shuffle would have cracked the screen by now.

    I got the Shuffle. I had an idea that the long battery life would be ideal for my main use of my iPod–listening to audiobooks. I like the screen on my Mini, but I don’t need my whole music or audiobook catalogue with me at all times. If I have only one or two items on the drive, a Shuffle is perfect.

    I haven’t upgraded to a Nano or a video or photo iPod because I think they have feature bloat. I could have video with me all the time, but I really don’t need to be any more media-addicted than I already am. Photos, ditto, narcissism.

    Feature bloat is my primary complaint about iRivers, too. Those things are enormous and wayyyy too complicated. Friends of ours bought one for their eight-year-old son, and I couldn’t say so, but I have no idea what they were thinking. Especially since they can’t figure it out, he couldn’t figure it out, and it’s sat unused for seven months because they thought it would be better than an iPod. Wasteful.
