Zhenya Tech: IPod Q&A (20) RE: Tech: IPod Q&A 21 Feb 08

The Shuffle doesn't have a display. You set up a playlist in iTunes itself and then sync that to the Shuffle. Then you can either do shuffle play, or toggle a switch and play tracks in the exact order they are in the playlist. Those are the only two options.

Note - You can move back and forth in the playlist without having to listen to every track. So if you put the tracks on alphabetically, for example, you could advance through the playlist to find what you want, but you would have to click on each track one at a time, in order, probably stopping every now and then to see what you're up to. Very tedious, and not very practical.

If it otherwise meets your needs, the iPod Nano has a display and gives you full choices with your music, and is very lightweight.
