Just in case there are any of you out there who haven’t already got an iPod, Apple are leaving you no excuse to keep avoiding the must-have gadget of, well, forever.The mammoth 80GB iPod has been cut by £20 to £239, whilst Apple have shaved a tenner off the 30GB version (down to £179) and you can now pick up a small, but perfectly formed iPod Shuffle for just under fifty quid.No official word from Apple as to why the price cuts were made, perhaps they just need to clear some room in their warehouses for all those new iPhones.Whatever the reason it seems Apple won’t be happy until everyone has joined the white-headphoned masses. Go on, you know you want one.
