I am now the owner of an Ex-Shuffle. May it rest in pieces.
I had it in my backpack last night and accidentally dropped said pack. Twice. During one of those drops it managed to come apart in a manner that suggests it will never go back together. Ever ever.
So now I am iPodless. The question at this point is what I will replace it with. I liked my little shuffle. But a video iPod might be nice.
