I've been looking at getting an iPod video, but they have been out since Sept 06, and have a "Buy only if you need it - Approaching the end of a cycle" recommendation, which made me consider an iPod Shuffle, which has a "Buy" recommendation on the Buyer's Guide. I almost bought one when out shopping for something else. But after more research, I realised the Shuffle "update" in January was the release of four new colours. The specifications have not changed from Sept 2006 (same as the "Buy only if you need it" video iPod), and nor has the price dropped. So can the new releases in January can really be called an "update", and does the iPod Shuffle really merit a "Buy - Product recently updated" recommendation on the Buyer's Guide?
