Compelling offer #02 – iPod Shuffle?

I love Apple and they never cease to
amaze with all the new and cool things that they come out with.
However, I was a bit surprised when they came out with iPod Shuffle. It felt like it was more of a marketing play than a pure product innovation. I expected a lot more from Apple.

Here is why:
from Apple already has a feature called “Shuffle” that will shuffle the
songs and randomly choose the sequence of upcoming songs. The lowest
version today costs about $199.00. Of course, iPod has a lot more
features than iPod Shuffle (costs $99)

If that this the case, does it mean that the “Shuffle” feature on iPod is worth $99?

What do you all think?
