iPod Shuffle

by MeanDonnaJean / June 22, 2008 10:44 AM PDT

Can anybody gimme some input as to this tiny funny-lookin' device they call an iPod Shuffle? I can't believe how cheap it is compared to the prices of other iPods, and therefore I wonder just how good it can be. My son has a Zune which has already been "in the shop" once (due to his "big-bull-in-a-china-shop" ways) and I refuse to put out that kinda money again to purchase another device in that big-money-for-me category. So anything ya can tell me about the Shuffle will help. Thanx to all.

okay for a kid

It's an okay sounding player. It's pretty sturdy as it is made of aluminum and doesn't have a screen. However, its size make it really easy to misplace/lose. I've misplaced it several times and I'm an adult. Actually, I don't even use mine anymore. I have more expensive iPods and I prefer them. I have a SanDisk Sansa Clip and I prefer that over the Shuffle for sound quality as well as value.

....for an almost 16 year old who's constantly losin'/breakin'/missin' things, the Shuffle ain't such a good thing then. I reckon he'll just have to stick with the Zune....which is now officially his #2 player but I think that too is on its last leg. His first one was a Creative Zen (or somethin' like that) but that didn't last too long either. Oh well, whadda ya gonna do with these kids! Just want ya to know that I appreciate yer honesty. And hey, ya don't feel like donatin' that unused Shuffle of yers to a kid whose gonna turn 16 on the first, do ya? Wink Thanx again.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
