Colorful iPod shuffles

I want one!

How did I miss this?!

I was just cleaning out my neglected inbox (that whole I’m going to stay on top of my e-mail this year thing hasn’t been working so well for me) when I noticed the e-mail from Apple announcing these came a few days ago.

Wow, I’ve been slow on the uptake for recent Apple announcements.

I really want one. Actually, I really want the nano. In color. Blue preferably, but I’ll for settle for pink, green or silver. In that order. (I think orange is the ugliest color in existance after brown. But then, Ford has managed to sell lots of those ugly copper-colored focuses, so perhaps I am in the minority?)

The exciting news, of course, is now I can have a shuffle in color, too.

Only one hitch. I already have a 30GB Video iPod in fine condition with nary a scratch on its body. It’s only got about 4GB of music on it. It’s still under warranty… In short, I really don’t need a new iPod.

But then again, it would be pretty cool. Only $79. Colorful. Tiny. Good thing I’m broke, or I’d already have placed my order.
