    According to Apple, iPod Shuffle comes with:

    iPod Shuffle
    Dock
    Earphones
    Quickstart Guide


    We pay $49 for 1gb version

    Earphones worth $29 - Link

    Dock worth $29 - Link

    $29 + $29 = $58

    iPod Shuffle worth: -$8

    Apple's new ad should be:
    BUY IPOD SHUFFLE WITH NO ACCESSORIES, AND WE PAY YOU $8!

    I just thought it was kind of weird.

    That's a good point, I'd never thought of it like that. It becomes an even better if you get a refurb, which is only $39.

    Hahaha! That's pretty cool actually! Now get your entrepreneurial heads on and figure out how you can dissect this package and make some money! ;)

    It's not that the shuffle is too cheap, it's more that the separate earphones and dock are too expensive

    Every go to a car dealer andbuy a car part? If you bought a Toyota from the Toyota parts depertment and built it yourself it would likely cost $100K

    The reason for the high prices for parts both at Apple and Toyota is that customers are willing to pay those prices
