Something for iPod Shuffle owners..

Writing about web page http://shuffle-db.sourceforge.net/

I came back from holiday in Amsterdam this weekend, and on my way through Schipol before catching my flight I noticed they had 512MB iPod Shuffles on offer @ 95. I already have a regular iPod but i've been thinking about getting one of these since they came out.. and when I realised I had almost exactly 95 left I decided it had to be destiny and bought it :)

I was exceptionally dissapointed to realise last night as I tried to get it working at home that you need use the iTunes library facility and either have it sync a random chunk of your tunes to the Shuffle or drag and drop from the library.. great, as long as you actually use the library feature of iTunes.. which I don't!

So a quick Google found me the utility at the above website. Simply drag and drop the MP3's you want onto the Shuffle (as if it were a regular USB pen drive), copy the very small database building executable to the root of that drive, and then run it. Because of the simple technology behind the Shuffle, the little app can rebuild the index without the need for iTunes at all. I tried it last night, dropped about 40 tunes onto my Shuffle and away I went.. works like a charm :)
