With just seven buttons iPod shuffle is definitely the easiest-to-use MP3 player available on the market today. Finally an MP3 player that you don’t need to be a tech wiz to master! Just transfer your songs, turn it on, press play and that’s it! This is the kind of device that even your grandma can learn how to use in less than one minute – provided that she knows how to use a regular CD player, of course (but if your grandma is like mine, she will ask you to come over to her place from time to time to add/remove songs for her, so think a lot before giving her one – well, at least payment for the favor is done in chocolate cake, LOL).

It is not only about its ease to use that iPod shuffle is great: it comes with a rechargeable battery, it is very small, discreet and very light, making the perfect choice for people that want to listen to music while exercise or need a player discreet enough to not draw undesirable attention.

And the best of all: it comes with a beautiful price tag.
