shuffle clip

So the new Ipod Shuffle’s a clip.  Neat!  Here’s something I wrote back in January of last year about the original Shuffle.

It’s light enough to be remarkably light.  Ridiculously light, even.  So light as to truly deserve the “wearable” label.  Which is why I’m surprised they’re shipping with a lanyard instead of some sort of integrated clip (like some other flash-based music players).  Lanyards would be great if headphones were wireless; otherwise you end up being a mess of cabling.  A clip would be perfect – clip it to your shirt, your pocket, your bag strap, your coat collar, your tie even.

So, um, yeah.  A clip.  As I said…neat!
