I'm having a moment of weakness and I think i'm going to get an iPod shuffle!

I cant really afford it 'cos i've got no money, and I've just had to pay £200 to get my car back from the pound (it got towed away- Waltham Forest council, you're first against the wall come the revolution)

I vowed to get a proper iPod once i changed my job, as a wee incentive to myself, but I feel that like a zombie, i'm going to shuffle to the shop and buy a Shuffle.

Stop me!

I love my Shuffle.

I'm just about to put it on now as I leave the office for the day.
What shall I listen to? The Orb, The Strokes, Miles Davis?

It's so small, light and convenient. It's my little friend... :D

Would love to help, but I bought mine 2 days ago and I a listening to it at work right now. I thought I would never buy one because it did not have a screen. Then I realized that I am not going to keep chosing songs all day long on a mini and would just suffle them....so guess what I bought.

Love the 12 hour battery life....keeps going and going and going...

id like to say no as well, but it really is a great little thing, especially at only $100 for the 512, which is what i got to compliment a lager iPod when i can afford it.....

the only downside to the shuffle is that it is so small and lightweight is that i am afraid of losing it

believe it or not my cousin actually sold off his 4g 40gig ipod after having the shuffle for a couple of weeks. same reasoning as before, much lighter and way easier to carry around, enough songs in it to take you throught the day.

i love my shuffle to death, but i MUST say that you should definately pay any bills and such first before buying the shuffle. i get into trouble all the time for buying something and then not having enough money to pay the bills. :D

also, Do Not Eat iPod Shuffle

Better idea- my girlfriend is going to New York next week- I'll get her to buy me one. Save me a few £'s.

Phew! Cleared the guilt zone.

I'll have to pay for it though :(

Off-topic slightly: I did notice in Dixons that they sell alot of mp3 players of many different kinds. They are displayed in a glass case in all their glory, except for the iPods which are left in their boxes on the display case.

Most of the iPod copies were crud, but there was a new iRiver and an Olympus one that looked neat.

You have these moments of weakness a lot?

You might want to check in to getting some therapy, or buying some Tony Robbins and Billy Banks videos to toughen you up mentally and physically.

Be a man, don't get the Shuffle yet. Go pay for some of the more important things in life, like: the car, beer, and porn. :D

Somehow, I don't think this motivational speech will work. But I think we can probably sell him to some advertising companies for some subliminal message testing. So there's a chance some good will come out of this thread. :p

I did not think I cared about having one, but since I got it as a gift I love it! Use it all the time!
