The newest iPod Shuffle, about the size of a large coin, weighs less than a half ounce, carries 240 songs, plays for 12 hours on one charge, and costs just $79.00. The iPod Nano (seen in Figure 11), about the size of a stick of gum, carries 2,400 songs, plays for 24 hours, and starts at $149.00. And the iPod itself, now able to store 20,000 songs or six hours of video, plays for more than six hours and costs as little as $249.00.

When people pick up an iPod, they begin to understand, often for the very first time, that personal technology can be a source of joy. If you love your iPod, your best reason to switch may already be right there in the palm of your hand.
