It’s not the iPod Touch and iPhone repricing that everyone’s been hoping for, but at least they’re helping out the less wealthy Apple fans with the news that a 2GB Shuffle will be available later this month, at just £45.
Not only that, but the regular ol’ 1GB Shuffle will see…

Here’s a great Christmas idea for that lazy friend of yours. The Eye-Fi card is a 2GB SD card which is Wi-Fi friendly, allowing…
