I have to agree with Mitch Denny about the supply/demand for the new iPod Shuffle MP3 player.
The same was true for the original iPod – one of the first people I know who bought one was hunting all over town to find one. Finally went to an Apple store in South Melbourne.
Now – you can buy them anyway – including JB Hi-Fi, Dick Smith, Megamart – soon Coles & Safeway !! (just kidding)
As well as “online”…
Same deal with the iPod Shuffle – just trickle the supply – and the demand increases. Good marketing strategies I guess.
I must admit – they do LOOK cool – but I still want a “normal” iPod – none of this mini-iPod, or iPod Shuffle (without a screen ?!?)
Just a 60GB iPod Photo – that’d be nice.    🙂
