Every Day I’m Shuffling

Here’s another odd bit of Apple history that you can still plug into a Mac and expect it it to still work…

The original iPod Shuffle.

This is my 1Gig Shuffle that I picked up back in February of 2005, and like my iPhone 1, it still holds a charge for days and still works beautifully.

I use it for my evening walks because you can still plug one of these into a bleeding edge M1 Mac running the latest OS, and Apple Music (iTunes) will still see it and load it with random music.

Though you do need an adapter these days to get from USB type-A to USB type-C…

I’ve long since lost the original headphones and now use a pair of JBL Quantum 50s with the Shuffle, which are certainly good enough for walking around to a personal soundtrack.

It never ceases to amaze me just how long Apple stuff lasts…
