Why the shuffle is better than the Competition • The shuffle is better than the competition because it is the least expensive and it is small enough to easily stick in your pockets. With those other more bulky iPod’s it is hard to be able to stick them in your pockets because they will be to large to fit. The shuffle also holds quite a few songs for its size.
