Shuffle's super-similar rival returns

It's back.

The iPod Shuffle look-a-like that at CeBit has returned with a new name and some minor alterations.

Formerly known as the "Super Shuffle," LuxPro is now calling its flash-based music player the Super Tangent. The device's button design has been changed slightly and it now comes in three colors, but it still bears a remarkable resemblance to the iPod Shuffle.

Only time (and perhaps court filings) will tell whether Apple thinks that LuxPro has made enough changes.
