You read it here first! A iPod Shuffle that tells you what track you’re listening too:
The Voiceover feature in the new 4GB Shuffle iPod is pretty much exactly what I suggested in a blog entry last March:
Ideally, it’d be good to be able to press some button combination to hear [the track name] when you want to know what you’re listening to.
Of course, I think it’s a pretty obvious idea for anyone who uses a Shuffle on public transport, or while walking or running, and is aware of text-to-speech capabilities. But I did submit the idea to directly to Apple too, so who knows, perhaps it helped persuade them to implement it.
(If so, Apple guys, a free one would be nice!)
