It's Easy as Cake--But Tastes like Plastic, Silicon and Circuitboards

"Do not eat iPod shuffle." That's Apple's newest warning to consumers. Apparently, the new iPod shuffle is as easy as cake, but doesn't taste anything apple strudel.

Read the second warning below, or click on the iPod product description page.

Plugged into iBook


iPod shuffle makes syncing a piece of cake. Cupcake, even. Use the optional Dock to connect to your computer or just plug iPod shuffle directly into a USB port on any computer(4). Then drag and drop individual songs, Autofill your favorite playlists or Autofill your iPod shuffle with a random sampling from your music library. Since iPod shuffle automatically charges while syncing, it stays ready for your next adventure.

  1. Music capacity is based on 4 minutes per song and 128Kbps AAC encoding.

  2. Do not eat iPod shuffle.

  3. Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge cycles and may eventually need to be replaced. Battery life and number of charge cycles vary by use and settings. See for more information.

  4. Some computers require either the optional iPod shuffle Dock or a USB cable extender (sold separately).
