As usual, I'll update this review as I work with it. Comments:
- lovely packaging
- I hate the cradle. It's another stupid proprietary connector to clutter my desktop. The device is too small for a full iPod connector, but Apple could have put a mini-B USB connector in it. That would have been a compassionate act of great good karma, but instead Apple stuck us. It's enough to make me think fondly of Vista.
- Did I mention I despise the cradle? There's no audio out. The only thing worse than sticking me with YAC (yet another cradle/connector) is omitting the audio out. So you can't charge and play.
- nice decals
- I failed the IQ test. I assume that's what the cryptic directions are. "Red dot: on while any button is pressed when hold is off".
- It plays music.
- It mounts on my desktop so I can, in theory, use it as a thumb drive. If I carried the stupid cradle.
- Miserable cradle.
