i got an ipod shuffle for xmas. highly recommend. however the ear buds hurt and i can't get them in my ears far enough for better sound quality i need smaller ones.
the shuffle mode is great for working out b/c of course you don't know which song you'll hear next.
limewire is OK (I've HEARD) but I also HEARD that the older the song, the longer it'll take to download. for instance MY FRIEND downloaded an old dmx song and it took ages to download.
