We reported earlier this week that Apple’s retail stores were running short on the supplies of the iPod Shuffle, amid speculation that Apple’s tiniest music player might be discontinued. We’re happy to report today that the shortages are apparently due to changes in Apple’s component supply chain.
Supplies of Apple’s iPod Shuffle are reported to be dwindling in Apple’s retail and online stores. Apple has warned their employees that Shuffles will be in short supply for an unspecified amount of time.

The class-action suit against Apple for allegedly locking users’ iPods to their iTunes music ecosystem may thrown out due to a lack of plaintiffs.
The decade-old class-action lawsuit brought against Apple by iPod owners angry that they were locked into the iTunes ecosystem is finally underway in a California courtroom, and emails between Apple executives, and a videotaped deposition of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs are the focus of the early proceedings.
