Not quite the announcement of a 3G iPhone, but there is a small new addition to the iPod family today: a £45 Shuffle with double the capacity.

So that's 2GB of randomised listening pleasure for £4 less than the current 1GB model. To avoid economic meltdown, the 1GB version's getting a price cut from £49 to a bargain £32.

Otherwise it's the same metal-clad clip we know and love – with no screen, FM radio or speaker to bring it up to spec with its closest rival, the Creative Zen Stone Plus.

Come on, Apple - give us something to sink our teeth into. After the pink iPod Nano, 16GB iPhone and now the 2GB iPod Shuffle, this drip, drip of iPod news is starting to feel like water torture.
