One of my coworkers works with an ipod shuffle in her ear all the time. We have to do so much talking on the phone that it would be impossible for me to concentrate and listen to music on headphones. Music playing softly in the background is OK but not on the ipod. When I got my ipod it was at the time when the ipod mini was all the rage. I got a pink one engraved. Within a month or two or three after that the new ipod nano came out and mine was obsolete. Technology becomes "old" pretty quick. I am still happy. I love my ipod minnie.
If you do not have an ipod, you will want to participate in theiPod Shuffle Giveaway! You too can be all in the hizouse with the music! The contest is being hosted by Productivity 501. Be sure to check it out. It is easy to participate. You write a review of Productivity501 and post it to your blog. The best 5 reviews will go into a drawing for a shiny new iPod.

I did ask my coworker who wears the shuffle constantly if it increased her productivity. She said it did becasue she turns it on when she is stressed. I do not belive her. What outside force will improve my productivity? For me it is coffee. I need the caffeine.
