  • The Apple iPod Shuffle is an adorable way to take your favorite songs on the go, but sometimes it's too small for its own good.


  • At just £39, with 2GB of storage and coming in a variety of fruity colours - our "orange" was more gold, and better for it - this iPod Shuffle is the best effort to date.


  • The 4th Generation iPad is only a minor improvement over its predecessor but still remains the tablet to beat. An upgraded A6X processor, Apple's new Lightning connector and a better front facing camera are the main differences. All in all this is an iterative upgrade that should only interest those who don't already own a 3rd Generation iPad.


  • The iPod Shuffle's buttons are back, and the lightest, smallest MP3 player on the planet is now better than ever.


  • Apple's slimmed-down, slicker-than-ever iPod nano responds to your movements, creates playlists it thinks you'll like, and makes the competition look like a bunch of clunkers.


  • With the redesign of the fourth-generation iPod shuffle, Apple has brought back a classic design that works well with any set of headphones. At $49 for 2GB of storage, itâ?? s not only the perfect entry-level iPod, itâ?? s also a solid second device for iPhone users who want to keep it simple while exercising. While the shuffleâ?? s reduced size makes it a bit harder to clip on clothing than the second-generation model, itâ??


  • - The Clip offers a respectable 92dB signal-to-noise ratio.


  • - The SanDisk Sansa Clip is well-designed, well built and easy to use, comes in several colours and offers both decent capacity and long-lasting batteries.
    - The clip itself is sturdy and snaps back firmly into place and has a circular thumbhole to make grabbing it easier.
    - It's possible to drag-and-drop tracks and albums on to Clip's flash hard drive as well as to synchronise with Windows Media Player.

    - Other features include a built-in FM Radio, voice recorder, and microSD slot that can handle cards up to 16GB.
    - The 1-inch monochrome OLED screen, while tiny, has enough pixels packed into the tiny space to look quite sharp, and it easily gets all the vitals across, even in direct sunlight.
    - True to the name, the back boasts a massive clip that springs open to grab firmly onto sleeves, waistbands and pockets.


  • - It's nice to see that Sony is continuing to introduce products that are not only innovative but can also compete with Apple when it comes to a design that's straightforward and graceful.
    - This $69.99 (list) MP3 player/earphone combo sounds good, stays in place, and is easy to use.


  • A well-designed MP3 system for active pursuits, offering decent sound quality and intelligent controls. For gym use, jogging or dirty work, it's hard to find anything better.

    - The earbuds are comfortable and the player sits naturally in the ears..
    - Usability is simplistic and perfect for on the move changing and volume control.


  • - It seems more durable and high-quality than early Sansa models.
    - The SanDisk Sansa Fuze is supercheap and nicely compact.
    - The icon-driven main menu is nice enough to look at, and the device is very easy to navigate, with music organized into playlist, artist, album, and so on.
    - The battery life of 28.2 hours for audio and 6.5 hours for video is plenty impressive.


  • - It isn't a pixelated mess with poor audio, which is sometimes the outcome with free video-conversion software.
    - If you want a tiny device with video capabilities, however, the Fuze should please.
