Good Gift for Non-pc Owner?
Please choose the appropriate forum for this topic. Thank you. A friend of mine would dearly love to have but a Shuffle, but doesn't own a pc or have Internet.

Given they have no way to download music or re-charge the device at home, is this a good gift idea for them?

I'd hate to give a gift the person couldn't really use. I dont own one, so I am feeling in the dark here...

This probably sounds like a dumb question, and even given that, I'd love to hear your opinions. This person works out at a gym and commutes daily on buses so they would enjoy it if there is a way to "use it".

I'm also not sure about which to get... 512mb vs. 1 gig...if it is an appropriate girft for for them.

Thanks for your replies!!!

There are accessories you can by which allow you to charge the shuffle off a wall outlet, but without a PC support the song list will get pretty boring after a while (Not to mention the fact that you'd have to load it for them with their favorites in the first place0

Buy a CD player... with mp3 support . Make a CD with his favourites and give it to him. If he gets bored he will be able to buy a new CD. iPods w/o computers are like cars without gas 250 miles away from any gas station: Utterly useless!
