I just won $250 US dollars from a t-shirt design contest. You know what that means. Apple store, here I come. I am strongly considering getting a 1 GB iPod shuffle plus a wireless keyboard. I already own a 4 GB iPod mini, and the shuffle would definitely be a complement. Every day I take my iPod mini out and about, and I'm always afraid something terrible's going to happen to it. The iPod shuffle would be a bit of a workaround. It would probably begin to be used more than the iPod mini, which would be saved for that occasional trip or some such. I am also strongly considering getting an iPod nano. Unfortunately, the 4 GB iPod nano is already $249, plus more because of the exchange rate (I live in Shanghai). There are, however, several disadvantages to the nano: - my iPod socks will no longer fit - my two iPod mini docks will become paperweights - I'll probably have to sell my iPod mini, and who wants an iPod mini that has the previous owner's name engraved on the back of it? - no money for other stuff (ie. posters for my room, wireless keyboard, beer) So, help me spend my money... should I: 1. Keep the iPod mini, buy a 1 GB shuffle plus a wireless keyboard plus beer? 2. Attempt to sell the iPod mini, buy a 4 GB iPod nano and render all of my accessories useless? 3. Spend it all on beer? I am also strongly considering option 3. [Edit] Question: Does the iPod shuffle dock only work with the iPod shuffle, or is it essentially an expensive USB cable extender? I've already got one of those, I could just use it, but the dock is a much more elegant solution. For example, could I plug a USB flash drive into the shuffle dock? Thanks.
