iPod Shuffle? Isch Don't Think So~! its the Luxpro Super Tangent
Mister Steve Jobs over at Apple is surely thrilled to see yet another knockoff of his iPoop line of products. This one is actually cool though. Not only does it NOT have the lame Digital Rights Management (a.k.a. erase your iPod instead of let you share tracks with friends) that iPod and iTunes have, it also can encode MP3s direct from its line-in feature; letting you rip off live Radiohead concerts with style. Another bang its got on the Shuffle is an integrated FM tuner; for those of us still sucking on the Clear Channel/Infinity Broadcasting teet.
So all these extra goodies are going to cost ya right? NO! This baby's made in Taiwan and pays no allegiance to our pathetic "copyright" or "patent" laws. Pick it up for 8980 Yen, or about $85USD - 15 bones cheaper than its fruity step brother Shuffle.
