iPod Useless Becomes a Reality!


A few years back, some hilarious individual assembled the following video which makes fun of apple’s never ending simplification of their iPod product line:

Well, this parody may be funny, but it’s now become true. Apple’s new iPod shuffle is 50 percent smaller, lighter and is perhaps the world’s first electronic device with no display, no buttons, and no real use. Apple disagrees, however, as one of the “features” is that it has no features. Directly from Apples website:

“We’ve moved the controls from the iPod shuffle… this allowed us to make the new iPod shuffle dramatically smaller, but not just for dramatically smaller’s sake. It’s also easier to use.”

Admittedly, it is possible to control the iPod via the headphones or by conversing with it (seriously), and there is an “off/shuffle/playlist” slider on the side, and it holds a fair amount of music. But seriously, are people actually willing to pay for this shit?

See for yourself, take a look at the “features” page here: http://www.apple.com/ca/ipodshuffle/features.html

    I have an ipod shuffle, only because I won it in a limbo competition. I did like the posting about bananas, I once bought a package of 14 bananas from costco, 11 of them went into the freezer. I eventually threw them out a year later when I moved.
