Here it is in my hand.
I tried to get some songs on it and it seems I can't just drag and drop music onto it as a removable hard drive. I needed to install the iTunes software first (I really don't like that) and use that to load songs. It was not very intuitive to me and screwed up front USB ports on my computer didn't help.
The best thing about the iPod are these:
They cost $39.99 CDN at Futureshop and so worth getting the iPod shuffle.
