i bet the next contest will have orange shuffle's with the name iLounge.com on the back and all the ilounge main heads will all get [email protected] ahaha...i just ordered a pink and blue and orange one!(orange and blue for me) and pink for my sister!
Of course, this does place the Shuffle now squarely in the realm of "fashion accessory".... I must admit that I was very briefly tempted to pick up a couple of different colours for different "mood" music, but those colours are just not my style....
i read the ilounge editors' comments, and agree with most of them. I do wish this was the offering from the start (as far as the colors go...the new headphones aren't worth all the hype) as I probably would have went for the orange instead of the silver. However, since I purchased the silver one with gift cards, I wouldn't be against getting a second orange one.
On a side note...jhollington...what color would you go for out of curiosity?
Like Jeremy, I would have liked to see a black one, which would have probably been my choice over silver.
If I had to choose one from the available colours other than silver, I'd pick orange just to fly the iLounge colours but again none of the available colours particularly impress me.
A Product (RED) would have also been very nice, particularly with Valentine's Day coming up, although they likely do not have sufficient margin on the Shuffle to pull that off (since a portion of the purchase price is donated).
I had a silver one but I listen to a lot of podcasts and talkradio and not having a screen wasn't working. Plus,on shuffle I didn't like listening to a song and then having Opie/Anthony or TWIT pop up.
Plus,I don't like the silver and I'm sick of black. Everything is black or silver. So,now that I have a regular ipod (5.5) I am tempted to grab an orange one because it is very sexy looking and with it not having to serve as my primary ipod I can use it at the gym or on the bus for short trips where I only listen to music. Plus,it's just damn cool and I want one even if I don't 'need' one.
I'm happy they made orange,it's a great,underused color and it's at least something different. It's also my 3rd favorite color after white and dark purple.
For anyone who has bought one, I know the headphones are the new style. But are they regular length, or shortened like the Radio Remote length? For the Silver ones, back in November, I heard they are shortened (I haven't opened mine yet, I'm waiting to wear out an old pair before opening a new pair) but I just wanted to know about the new ones. Thanks.
