10 Q, Mat. Am at Radio Shack and need to make a quick purchase decision. Can it play just MP3's?

it can't play DIVX

audio: it can play regular MP3s, AACs, WAVs, and AIFF files.

video: it can play certain sizes of MPEG-4 and H.264

Assuming it's an iPod Video...

Yes. The ipod shuffle cannot play video. Or DVDs.

Simple but obvious advice: Don't make quick purchase decisions while standing in a shop. If you are not sure what is best, go away and research it, then return another time.

In the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of Man, open your hearts, bretheren, to my message to you. I, the Son Of Man, on this day, announce mine spirit and mine body, the proud owners, the proud keepers of one 2 gig nanno. Amen!

k. I'll stick a Philo sticky here.


Eve had the apple,
From the apple came Jobs;
From the apple came Lisa,
the daughter of the apple;
From the apple came the iPod,
and all the other things evil.

the RadioShacks guy didn't have it. Later yesterday, I saw a nice chick @ CompUSA. Man, she was awesome. She had the 60gig one and I wanted that but I'd already bought the nanno. But hey! I bought a DigiCam from CompUSA last night. It was cool!
