    so ive never used or owned a shuffle, thinking of getting one though for when im out hooping or at the gym, had a couple questions though

    how do you choose a selected playlist you want to play? assuming you can fit at least more than a couple or whatever the size permits, right? i know it now has physical buttons for play ff/rewind was curious how you select playlists though

    Press and hold the voiceover button on the top of the shuffle to hear your playlists. Once you've heard the playlist you want, press the play button.

    I see right on for the info, do you have one seem decent so far? If weve got 4-5 small playlists wed have to wait for it to cycle through say first few or whatever?

    Also how is sound quality my cousin has a Nano not sure what gen but noticed its really low and doesnt have any real punch..compared to ipod on iphone 4 curious how the new shuffles are ? ( in the gym ill want my music loud lol)

    Yes, I just got mine recently and I'm liking it. The voiceover button will repeat the playlists in a cycle and say each one. If I had to compare the sound quality from my itouch 2nd gen to the new ipod shuffle, I would say the shuffle sounds a bit better. I use my shuffle for the gym, so I don't think you'll have a problem with it.

    Nice think im going to pull the trigger. Got to thinking though before I do think these will go on sale or have a deal like gift card offered within the month or so? They are already not too expensive so maybe ill just get right much u pay for yours? cheapest ive seen it for is Amazon 47.99 no taxes free ship

    Mine cost about $52 in the Apple store after tax. I have some small gripes, but over all it does fits the bill for a simple music player perfectly.

    I have about 5 playlists and 10 podcasts on mine. Once the voiceover says the first playlist you can start using the skip button to jump back and forth among the playlists instead of waiting for the voice to slowly list them off.

    Or hit the VO button again.

    I have an Apple ipod but i can't able to create songs play-lists. Apple ipod need also use of i-tunes when we connect with PC.

    Nice thought you had to wait, that would have been a small complaint for me..
    What ?? Not sure what youre saying but do we not use a Apple USB cable to sync?

    Pure speculation. We have no way of knowing. Questions like these cannot really be answered. With the low price as is, you'll be hard pressed to find any type of deal on these, unless it's something insignificant.
