That's a nice, fair review. I'm surprised he wound up missing the display more than he thought he would, most people (myself included) seem to be finding that they miss the display less than they thought they would.

I thought it was particularly interesting that he had some issues getting his PC to recognize the shuffle.
Alas, the experience did not go as smoothly on a Windows machine. After I plugged in the USB, the PC had difficulty recognizing the iPod and loading the Apple software. I kept getting one of those baffling Windows error messages: "1607: Unable to install InstallShield Scripting Runtime." Eventually, I rebooted the PC and got Shuffle and the Windows computer to make nice. You can go back and forth between a PC and a Mac, but Shuffle can be associated with only one computer at a time.
