031709_rg_istick_01.jpgWith all of the hoopla about the new iPod Shuffle, you’re probably wondering if you’ll get one. iPods are a great way to listen to music, even though I don’t like iTunes that much. I’ve had an iPod Classic 160GB for about a year now and I’m satisfied with it. The iPod before lasted for about 5 years before the battery stopped working.

That doesn’t stop designers from trying to come up with better concepts to beat Apple’s.
