Apple 1GB Purple 2nd Generation iPod Shuffle - MB233LLA

Features:

  • Controls
    iPod shuffle pays respect to its bigger siblings with a circular control pad that puts the “go” in ergonomic. Click the center button to play and pause. Click the outer buttons to move back, skip forward, and adjust volume
  • Clip
    Thanks to a built-in clip, iPod shuffle goes with anything. Clip it to your sleeve, lapel, coin pocket. No matter where you wear it, iPod shuffle speaks volumes about your style
  • Shuffle Switch
    Embrace your inner rebel: Flip the shuffle switch to mix up iPod shuffle’s contents. Flip it again to play your handpicked playlists and albums in the order you synced them from iTunes.
  • Battery Indicator
    Green means go, amber means you’re low, and red means you’ve almost hit zero. But with up to 12 hours of battery life, iPod shuffle may keep rocking even longer than you do.
  • Headphone Jack
    The headphone jack does double-duty as a dock connector. Flip iPod shuffle upside-down and drop it into the included dock. Connect the dock to your Mac or PC for a quick sync and charge. Away from your computer? Charge on the go with the optional Apple USB power adapter.

iTunes:

  • Stop, dock, and sync.
    iPod shuffle comes with its very own dock that you connect to your Mac or PC via USB. Then, whenever you feel the need for a quick sync, just drop iPod shuffle into the dock and iTunes gets to work.
  • More in store
    With up to 1GB of storage space, iPod shuffle happily stores files along with your music. Use iTunes to tell iPod shuffle how much storage space to leave free for files and how much to autofill with music.
  • World’s smallest DJ
    For the ultimate exercise in uncertainty, let iTunes randomly autofill your iPod shuffle. iTunes creates a playlist that fits your style — and your iPod shuffle’s capacity. For finer control over your portable music collection, set Autofill to sync from specific playlists or add higher-rated songs first. Or turn Autofill off and manually select the songs you want to tote on your iPod shuffle.
  • Fill ’er up fast
    iPod shuffle transfers the contents of an entire CD in a flash, so even if you completely refill iPod shuffle, you won’t be waiting very long at all. Of course, total time varies depending on how much music you want to add or replace.
