Apple has come up with a new device to fight iPod fatigue. Many radio stations do the same thing that this new iPod does- It can announce songs, artist and a little bit more. What's next?

Miami Herald The 4-gigabyte device can carry 1,000 songs and Apple has come up with a way for people to identify the music they're listening to or find songs they want. A new feature called VoiceOver can, at the push of a button, speak the song and artist name or rattle off the list of custom mixes - called playlists - that the owner has loaded onto the device.

When you tap a button on the headphones, the voice speaks the title and artist as the music plays.
