Yes, thank you Sahana for pointing me to this. I owned an iPod Shuffle, the first generation that is. Back then, I think it was in 2005, my shuffle was one of the gadget that I wouldn’t leave home without. Love the earphones that come with it. Can you believe it that it cost RM100+ just to replaced the earphones. While some might not like the lack of screen to show the songs that are playing, but if it’s your shuffle, you should know what’s playing because you put it there in the first place. Unless you use random insert; which I doubt you people would use it regularly, most of us out there like to pick what we want to hear. After looking at the video above I still love my shuffle.
This is my shuffle exactly a month ago. Actually you can glue it back together and used it. I just like to make it a little bit dramatic. Did I tell you that I LOVE my shuffle? Oh yes I did. OK, the real problem was the stereo jack had already conked out. Instead of hearing stereo, I’m listening mono, sometimes I can only listen on my right earpiece. I have to wiggle it a bit, detach a bit on the jack to listen to it. I think the constant plugging it into a non Apple jack; yeah I used it to jack into my MP3 radio modulator, had somewhat loosen to jack. Music is my life man, without my shuffle, it felt like a part of my life had gone missing.
I went to 1Borneo yesterday to meet a friend and while I was waiting, I went to Technocrats, just browsing through, did not intend to get myself anything. I did surfed to Apple’s website before this to check which iPod I would be getting and it was either iPod Nano (5th generation) or Shuffle (3rd generation). I kinda like Nano but I have too many gadget in my pocket so Shuffle would also be nice. As I was browsing through, looked at the price, a few minutes later, I’m out with my new Shuffle, not any Shuffle, a Shuffle with my favourite colour.
This morning, the first use; after loading songs in which I fell asleep waiting, part of my life that was missing had come to life again. I love the sound that came out from the earpiece, no other earpiece can beat this. The newer generation shuffle can even talk to you. Yes it can talk, telling you what song is currently playing. With 4GB capacity, I can now listen to ALL my song. Oh unfortunately, it doesn’t quite pronounce Malay song correctly.
And no, this is not the correct way to use the new iPod Shuffle.
Speaking about MP3 radio modulator, don’t you just hate it when you are listening to you favourite radio station and all the sudden you are listening to someone else *stup stup stup stup stup stup stup stup stup stup stup stup stup stup umcha umcha umcha umcha umcha umcha umcha umcha umcha umcha* that are playing on their modulator. FARK it man! Quit using 87.7 Mhz and 100.8 Mhz man. Some of us still like to listen to radio, not your junk! Yes, that’s the radio frequency for Hot FM and Hitz FM.
