Color Shuffles

the iPod Shuffle in color.

Wow. Apple released the iPod shuffle in multiple colors today. I still love my little silver shuffle, though, I can’t lie… these colors are mesmerizing. Add to that, the fact you get the new headphones with these… Man… I love the color switcher they built into the site to play off the different colors.

Will we see an orange iPod nano soon? Or a RED iPod shuffle?
