Podcast: Sounds of talking iPod Shuffle

The new iPod Shuffle talks to you in a computer generated voice. Male if you sync from a Mac and female from a PC.

Larry takes a listen to the sounds of the new iPod Shuffle with its VoiceOver feature that announces songs and artists and lets you select songs and playlists by listening and clicking. For some reason, people who sync from a Mac hear a male voice while Windows users get a female announcer.
