    Another 'feature' of the Shuffle I stumbled on today. . .

    If it is playing music and the headphones are unplugged, the Shuffle automatically pauses! Just another example of Apple's attention to detail.

    Another (less documented) option I use is pressing the play/pause button 3 times to return to the beginning of the playlist. This is especially useful to listen to a particular CD that is queued it up first in the play order.

    I'm so happy with my Shuffle. :)

    This feature worked for me when I unplugged my head phones from my Shuffle and forgot to turn it off. When I picked it up after 2 days, I was surprised that the batteries still worked. I am glad it had a auto-off feature so I didn't have to charge it again. Nice!

    I hardly use my 3G 10 GB iPod anymore after using the Shuffle. I want to have the Color iPod but only if they support Video. Something that plays Quicktime.
