    1GB shuffles and 60GB iPod photos are selling poorly. 4GB mini is the most popular. Appleinsider says they're working on a mini/shuffle hybrid.

    Lack of an LCD really makes the 1GB Shuffle a bitch to manage. I've got both a mini and a 512GB shuffle and I find the 512MB almost too much to manage if it's full. I purchased it for the Gym so normally only have 15 - 20 songs on it at a time. Usually just one or two CD's or a small mix of songs. It's perfect for that.

    I think a small, 1GB flash iPod with an LCD would be perfect!

    I love my shuffle. I throw all my gym tracks that will fit on it and go running. The sound quality is even better then my 20G 4th gen. So I'll be getting the 5th gen as soon as it comes out.

    I agree, if I had a 512 gigabyte Shuffle, I'd have problems managing all of those songs. :p

    I love my Shuffle; it's perfect for the gym.

    Yeah, 512GB would get a little crazy.

    I always had a preference to GB's over MB's...
