The iPod nano has killed two pods with one stone. As you all know the iPod mini suffered an early retirement, and rumor has it the iPod shuffle will meet a similar fate soon. Confirming the rumors is the mysterious appearance of the new and affordable 1GB iPod nano which will set you back $149. Now you can buy that nano for Valentines Day (wink,wink), and not feel too guilty about it. Prices have also dropped for existing shuffles, now starting at $69 for the 512MB model.
