But the iPod shuffle has sent my head spinning. I still don't know what I'll use it for, but I've been delighted by it for 24 hours now.
I found myself thinking about going for a walk, just to listen to the shuffle for a while. (I didn't; it was cold and I had stuff to do.)
I found the reality distortion field kicking in when I put the earphones on. It puts the "insane" in "insanely great".
Conclusion 1: Apple can sell these to almost everyone who is more likely to succumb to impulse-buy temptation than I am.
Conclusion 2: It's a good time to have Apple stock options.
