    I've been wondering this question for quite a while now because as soon as this clip shuffle had been released in 2006, the only news about the shuffle is new colors and nothing has been revealed about a new revamped look, now I know that we aren't having a new one this year but are we ever going to have a new shuffle or has apple just decided that they found the perfect look for a shuffle which they'll stick with?

    really the shuffle cant be changed all that much. Whats left to change while still tying it into the ipod theme?

    if anything id expect to see them fade from the ipod line. People know they can get VERY cheap mp3 players with no features, theres almost no reason for it to be a shuffle.

    I'd like to see a very tiny screen that atleast scrolls and shows the song name or something.... I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    Nah - big doubts on that one. I think the shuffle is what it will settle on for a long time. It's just a Happy Meal toy for induction to the Apple ladder of products. If smart they'll get that 1GB down to $29 sometime soon and load up the colors on the exterior. The design is quite excellent for exercise freaks and kids.

    IF that were to ever happen, itd have to be the best damn OLED screen out there for anyone to care, but then that would just make it an older nano.

    There is basically nothing that can be changed about the Shuffle. It's already incredibly tiny, thin, and light. All it needs is Apple Lossless playback (honestly... who would store 500 songs on a screenless iPod at 128kbps? that's insane... no way to navigate at all) and some more price drops.
