First Generation iPod Shuffle - This iPod Shuffle is the model that is shaped like a small pack of gum. It is long and thin and has a cap that can be removed to reveal a USB connector used for docking.

It is designed to be extremely lightweight and to be used in situations where light weight is valued over features or a screen (which the Shuffle lacks), such as running or biking. It offers two playback modes: playing straight through in order or shuffle.
