What was that song?

Chris Anderson looks at the iPod Shuffle and declares it a "value subtract" product. Interestingly, Apple borrows from the Microsoft playbook ("That's not a flaw - it's a feature") when they claim "iPod Shuffle adds musical spontaneity to your life. Lose control. Love it."

The idea of your iPod being shuffled-programmed like a radio station, isn't necessarily unappealing, but my guess is most, when asked, will characterize it by what it's missing, not a very rewarding consumer experience.
