Toshiba struggling with iPod shuffle demand

Toshiba, a supplier of flash memory to Apple for the iPod shuffle, is increasing production capacity of flash memory chips to meet demand. Demand for the iPod shuffle is so high that Corporate Vice President Masashi Muromachi has this to say about the iPod shuffle: "Demand created by this new machine is so vast that our current capacity can in no way meet their needs."

Currently, wait times at the Apple Store are several weeks for shipment of the iPod shuffle.
