With Thoughout, bring USB to iPod shuffle
Thoughtout has presented an interesting new accessory that allows you to add a traditional USB connector to the new iPod shuffle. The product, called "The Key" uses the multi-function port of the iPod shuffle through which pass both the audio for the headphones and the data such as the power supply to recharge the battery.
Thanks to The Key the Shuffle can be connected directly to the USB port of the computer, without using the mini-dock that is supplied with the iPod. In this way it becomes easier to turn the iPod shuffle into a USB key or, alternatively, connect it to another computer other than the one you have at home to listen to the songs contained in it.
"The Key" will be marketed starting from early 2007. The cost for the American market will be around $ 22.
