First 2G iPod shuffle unpacking photos

“The unpacking of Apple’s new iPod shuffle, taken like 40 minutes after the UPS dude left,” writes “nathan” over on

Apple began shipping the world’s smallest digital music player earlier this week.

Without further ado, the photos are here.


  1. Ahh… The unpacking photos ritual, a uniquely Apple tradition.

    I like the old shuffle because it has no need for a miniscule dock. I just ordered a refurbished 1GB “pack of gum” shuffle for $59, before they are all gone. But these new ones are pretty slick…

  2. What a Geek! Taking pictures of the unpacking process? Come on! <sarcasm>

    Honest truth is that I did not know about this “ritual” when I got my first Apple product (a PowerMac in 10/2004) and did the exact same thing! My wife and I have taken pictures unpacking ALL of our Apple products – iPods and Macbooks.
