Tearing Down The iPod Shuffle: Harder Than You Think

Google Instant Is Less About Speed Than It Is About Volume

Tearing down the iPod Shuffle may look easy – it is, after all, made of a few pieces of aluminium press-fitted and glued together – but the poor lads at iFixIt had a dickens of a time. Their complaint?

Although this step makes it look super-simple to open the Shuffle, it’s not. It took us a good half hour of prying and heat-gunning to open the little guy.
Pro tip: Aluminum gets hot when it’s heated!

That’s right: they got burned! Clearly the Shuffle, like the Ark of the Covenant, cannot be opened by unrighteous men.

Anyway, not much else to say except that it sure is small.
