What If Your iPod Shuffle Could Say What It Really Thought? (VIDEO)

The new iPod shuffle talks to you. If you sync it with a Mac you get a male voice telling you what song, artist, playlist you're listening to, if you sync with a PC you get a female voice.

Gizmodo assistant editor Adam Frucci obviously has a Mac and hipsterish taste in music that his iPod doesn't appreciate. As he walks the streets of Brooklyn listening to Animal Collective and Sonic Youth, his shuffle asks if his haircut comes with these songs and tells his PBR-drinking owner that he no longer has a say in what comes out of his earbuds.

The video, from UCB Comedy, comes with a surprise ending, but more shocking is how well they were able to match the robotic-yet-soothing tones of the shuffle guy's voice.
