shuffle compared

Prior to owning a shuffle, I've been using Creative's Muvo 128MB which my sister gave me as a graduation gift 4 years ago.

Though, no complaint, as it has always worked for me without a problem. It was just amazed at how fast technology changed. I couldn't believe all I had was a 128MB mp3 player that can contain upto 3 albums, depending how I would rip my songs.

Since I've gotten my shuffle, its sole purpose is to transfer files from my mac to pc at work, as my mac isn't connected to the network at all (don't ask why, cuz even I don't know why) so I am constantly transferring PDF proofs of my work to the network for my boss to check. Now that they given me a small USB drive to transfer files with, my Muvo has no purpose, so I've decided to part ways with it and simply give it to someone else who will have use for it.


I just found it interesting when I look at the size difference.

Around 75% smaller (without the clip) but roughly the same battery life and 8x as much storage, plus it looks better and is probably cheaper than when your sister probably bought that. Oh technology.

I find it interesting that this Muvo appears to have no display -- just like the Shuffle. Am I correct on this?

yup, you're right, no display, this was the model before they placed a display, which brother in law acquired after my sister got me this one. I believe they started to put a display with their 256MB.

I had a Sony player about 4-5 years ago that was the size of a memory stick it was a great size and had a nice little scrolling display - but the ATRAC3 Sony software for transfering songs was horrible so I sold it to a friend.
