I am in love with my iPod--I use it in the car, at the gym, around the house, everywhere! The silver is a nice change from just the white and black, and they rounded the top of the iPod. The feature that Apple added that I am most grateful for is the ability to change the shuffle settings without having to go to the settings menu; you can do it on the Now Playing screen. The lock switch sometimes unlocks itself in my purse, and then it accidentally hits the play button and runs down the battery. I like the iPod better than the newest iPod, the iTouch, because when driving, it is much easier to pay attention to the road and change the song; you don't have to look at the screen where to hit the forward button. It is much simpler, also, which is a bonus--I tend to complicate things, but the simplicity of the iPod is brillinat. Apple makes the iPod easy for anybody to use, from a preteen to a senior citizen. This is the perfect mp3 player for everyone!
