The iPod shuffle

I'm a lot less excited about this than the Mac mini, but to go along with the mini-Mac came a mini-iPod, the iPod shuffle.

Unlike it's larger cousins, but as predicted, the shuffle is based on a flash drive and comes in two models. A 0.5GB (120 song) model for $99, or 1GB (240 song) model for $149, and it's shipping today.

Update: The iPod shuffle is available in the UK for £69 for the 0.5GB model or £99 for the 1GB model, and again it's apparently shipping today.

Update: Russell Beattie has a good review of the iPod shuffle on his blog.
