Apple, wake up and stop the fart sniffing smugness about our products. Admit that the latest shuffle was a mistake and put the buttons back on the device. what was so bad about the previous generation that you said to yourself, "gee this would be even better if it had no buttons at all!" The headphone built-in controller is crap. I can see that little thing slap you in the chest while running, very annoying. and who wants to hold down the button to pause and play. we want the buttons to be quick and responsive.
just put the button back where they belong and admit your errors.
