Loading your iPod Shuffle is easy using Itunes. ITunes is available as a free download at At iTunes you can browse and buy millions of songs, audiobooks and podcasts. You can also import your own music, manage your media library, and sync your iPod Shuffle. You just put a CD into your computer with Itunes open and it will ask you if you want to copy the music to your computer.

The iPod Shuffle comes in many colors and if you order online you can get free shipping and free laser engraving. Thanks to the simple built-in clip, you can carry your favorite songs on your shirt sleeve, purse strap, waistband, etc. You can even listen to your favorite music while playing slots or card games at your favorite casino. But remember, most people talk louder when they are wearing earphones. And don’t wear them if you are driving.
