    This product is nice in size, but only works via iTunes so you have to import everything into that, then transfer it to the iPod. Also, you have to have a good memory to remember the order of the audios you want to hear, otherwise you have to blindly ff to hope to get where you want to be.

      Comments about Apple 2GB iPod shuffle (Pink, 4th Generation):

      I own a lot of other apple products already that play music (iPhone, iPod, etc.) but I wanted this one specifically for running. It's very light weight and compact. Clip works great. Just clip it on before playing music because you will press buttons. Wish it came with the newer earbuds, though.

                Comments about Apple 2GB iPod shuffle (Pink, 4th Generation):

                I use this to accompany my evening run and I love it! Small, simple, set it on "shuffle" and clip it to my shirt, and away I go. The included headphones are excellent.

                The only con is I hate iTunes. HATE. Least intuitive and most clunky piece of software I have ever had the misfortune to download to my computer. How is this from Apple? Steve, what were you thinking? Being the last in our family to get an iPod, I required both teenagers to figure out how to access the shared libraries and actually PUT the music ON my iPod.

                But other than that: Love it!
