Weak iPod shuffle sales

Apple's iPod shuffle sales are not doing well, according a report from Asia. Digitimes reports that "" may drive down by flash memory prices down by up to 40 percent due to excess manufacturing capacity by Samsung: "Although the iPod Shuffle was a hit when it was first introduced on the market, sales of the MP3 player are not justifying the supply forecasts for NAND flash that Apple has secured from Samsung, the sources stated. If Apple cancels the orders, Samsung may release even more NAND flash into a market already being affected by the influx of a number of new NAND flash producers, Shu indicated."

    I wouldn't buy one

    (alright I already have one) The shuffle may work with the best music store around but it has the least amount of features (no display, FM radio). There are plenty of players that have offer more.
