Turn any iPod into an iPod Shuffle in 3 easy steps!

The marketing guys over at Apple seem to be really pumping up the "never know whats gonna play next" randomness of the new iPod Shuffle. Since they are promoting this feature so much, saying things like "Daily gridlock feels less mundane when you don’t know what song will play next," I thought I'd put up my guide on how to give any regular iPod the cool new feature of the iPod Shuffle.


1. Get a Post-It note

2. Get your iPod

3. Put the Post-It note on the iPod


Now you can enjoy the iPod Shuffle's cool new feature without having to go buy a new player. Enjoy!

    To put pictures on your iPod

    1. Get a colour iPod (photo, colour 4G, video)
    2. Put the pictures you want into my pictures on WinXP, you may use subdirectories
    3. Update iPod

    Yeah I love the way Apple takes a built-in, inconvenient DRAWBACK,
    (ie: NOT having a screen or an ability to choose songs)
    and markets it as a "Useful Feature" to fight daily mundanity!

    What's next?....Scraping the numbers off of your television remote and enjoying the "Wild Adventure of never knowing what channel you'll get next!!!!"

    Or, perhaps putting duct tape over your car's speedometer to "Break up the mundanity of your daily commute to work with the excitement of random Police Interaction!!!"

    As you can simply stick you ipod in your pockets or lay it upside down on the table you're clearly working for 3M (makers of post-its) under cover! Shame on you! ;)

    I found exactly the same results can simply be achieved by shutting your ipod in a car door.
