All New Apple Shuffle 4GB $79 and New Headphones!

Apple released an all new iPod Shuffle which is by far, the smallest MP3 player in the history of Apple's line up. New featuring 4GB storage or up to 1000 songs, this new shuffle is still "headless" meaning no LCD to display song titles. There is, however, a workaround to identifying songs with a new feature called "VoiceOver" which can tell you the title of songs as well as playlist.

The big deal with this shuffle is the control embedded in the headphones instead of the body to save space. Critics think the new headphones requirement or adaptor for old headphones is a bad idea as it makes the shuffle less friendly.

It looks like they will be available today with two color choices: silver or gun-metal gray.
