Why would someone want an iPod shuffle?
- It holds what, 200 songs?
- There's no screen, you can't see what song you're playing.
- You can get something of a comparable size that holds more songs with a screen for a comparable price or cheaper.
I can see why someone would want a shuffle in addition to their preexisting iPod (you've already got your normal player for normal use, you can just grab this little one if you're going out on a run or something and you don't want a bulkier player; I've contemplated getting a shuffle in addition to my Mini myself), but why as your only mp3 player? It just doesn't seem practical to me.
