iPod Shuffle update: new colors and more features

Despite rumors of its impending death, Apple surprised us with an updated Shuffle featuring a range of new colors including a fancy stainless steel version. Controls are still on the headphone cord, but Apple says several manufacturers will be offering new phones with the required buttons, so you're not locked into the white earbuds. That weird voice that tells you the artist and track names, will now also give you info about battery life.

Prices remain as before at $59 for the 2GB model, and $79 for the 4GB. Both are available immediately.
