This Shuffle’s Made For Walking…

November 2, 2006

I had the most pleasant surprise on my door step today! My new iPod shuffle arrived. Actually, it’s arrival wasn’t that much of a surprise since I have been tracking it obsessively.

I am so excited to take it for a walk. I love my video iPod, but it’s a little bulky when I go to take the dog around the block. I’m very excited for the shuffle since it will clip to my jacket and I’ll hardly even notice it’s there.

The new shuffle did require a few things:

1. The newest version of iTunes. Not a big deal, but a surprise.

2. How to sync it with iTunes. I could have had iTunes randomly select music but I have control issues. For me, the preferred set up was to make a playlist which I titled Shuffle. This playlist will sync with my shuffle automatically when I plug it in.

3. Audiobooks. I have started to enjoy listening to audiobooks on my stroll, but when I added them to the playlist, they didn’t get copied onto my shuffle. Hmmm… When I did take the audiobooks and added them to the shuffle device directly (instead of the playlist) they copied.

My shuffle, named This Shuffle’s Made For Walking (or TSMFW for short) is fully charged and ready to take a spin.
