I couldn't find the control button. So I had to listen to schoolhouse rock. Where the hell were the controls?
I had to read (god forbid) the manual. I learned that the controls were on the godforsaken ear buds. The ones that come with the product -- those that need to be thrown out, because if you try to run over 2 miles/hour (I like six or seven best), they fall out.
I tried to use them. I was excited about the new features -- the ones that announced the battery and the next song. But the ear buds kept falling out. Of my ears. Definitely not worth the almost 100 dollars I spent. Furthermore, I couldn't keep the damn thing charged. Even when I tried on my supercomputer at work (they finally replaced our ten year old models last week at work).
I exchanged it for a nano. Can't wait to load it up again.
DON'T BUY THE NEW ISHUFFLE.
