I have an IAudio 5, which is similar in size to a shuffle, clunkier to use, and way more functional. Has a bunch of stupid colored light schemes, which I turned off and never touched again.
Very helpful, thank you. Giving me a idea of what is available out there.

upon quick search the IAudio is more expensive, $149 for the 1gig, than I want to pay.

No problem. $149 is about what I paid for it a couple years ago, I think Surprised it hasn't come down more than that.

I have the iAudio 5 as well (30 gig mechanical hard drive). It worked great for a while. Lately it's been crashing for no apparent reason. When it crashes, it's a real pisser. It stops playing the current selection, none of the buttons function (including the power switch), and the hourglass icon spins until the batteries die (HOURS AND HOURS!!!). Once it's dead, it'll recover back to normal when charged again...only to crash again after an hour or so.

I'm with iBeer. I too have a shuffle, and I use it every day. I also have an older 20gig mp3 player that I almost never use anymore.

And it has a non-shuffle function as well. Finding the track that you want to listen to can be a pain if you don't queue it up on your computer before hand, though. It is really nice because of its size, I just keep it in my coat pocket and I always have it.

went hook line and sinker for the shuffle. I can get a sh!t load of podcasts on there, more than I thought I could...brewing network, basic brewing, on point with tom ashbrook, tom martino, clark howard, randi rhodes and more to come.

One problem with the shuffle though, either the shuffle function does not work or I am doing something wrong. Won't work for me, just flashes alternating green, orange lights. Am thinking of returning.
Also...It is a pain to figure out what I have and haven't listened to already. Gotta fast forward through stuff to see if it sounds familiar. Oh, wo-is-me! life is soooo dificult!
