1GB iPod shuffle returns with 3-4 day shipping
After disappearing for a few weeks, Apple's 1GB iPod shuffle digital music player has returned to the company's online store. Apple lists the 1GB shuffle with shipping lead times of 3-4 days -- about the same amount of time left before the company will begin shipping the first batch of new 1GB shuffles expected to be introduced early next week at Macworld Expo. In mid-December, Apple removed the 1GB iPod shuffle from its online store, replacing the item with a note that said the player had "sold out for holiday." In the same note, the company promised fresh stock of the players in "mid-January."
