Apple Gives 2nd Generation iPod Shuffles to Employees

In an email sent to Apple employees yesterday, Steve Jobs reportedly promised a new 2nd Generation iPod shuffle to every "Full-Time and Part-Time employee" of Apple (including retail). The gifts will be delivered after all pre-orders for the new iPods are fulfilled and shipped to customers. The expected time-frame for the delivery of the shuffles to employees is by the end of the November.

The 2nd Generation shuffle just began shipping last week, after being announced in September.

Apple previously gifted iPod shuffles to many of its retail employees back in January 2005 as a thank you and incentive.

The first customers have already posted photos of the newest iPod, and Apple has posted a short FAQ.
