Not a huge Apple fan myself, but I always like to see technology progress! They've definitely stuck to their guns, because everything is just as shiny and polished as we've come to expect from Apple products.
Is it just me or is the new shuffle exactly like a gen 2 shuffle. Also the Gen 6 Nano is total trash. They dropped video play back and there is no camera but they kept the ridiculously high prices. It looks like Apple just wrote off anything beneath the ipod touch.
I'm glad they dumped the 3rd generation shuffle design. Putting the controls on the headphones was just plain dumb. If you are a runner, as I am, headphones are the first thing to go (from sweat) and replacing them was too expensive.
So..you can use Netflix which let's you stream unlimited movies for $9.00 a month on any Netflix streaming device including a PS3 and XboX360.. Or you can be an apple fanboy and pay $5.00 a movie just to say you have an iTV.
