    My idea - like all the iPods before it, it could be for output in a "Shuffle Dock" with speakers... Analog out?

    I never examined a USB plug because... well, I have a life :p (if you examine this stuff, jk, if you agree with me, I know right!?)

    hummm..... I thought something about that usb plug looked odd. i was studying my shuffle today when I noticed that the contacts were unlike anything I had seen before.

    Yeah, no, i've never looked at my usb plugs with a microscope! But I can't help but get hyped up when some rumor on the web looks mysteriously different.

    Apple obviously has a hidden agenda for the Shuffle. Maybe more accessories (i.e. radio?)

    ***I noticed that theoretically you can upgrade the amount of memory in the shuffle without buying a new one. If you notice the flash memory is held on a daughter card. Maybe down the road there will be upgrades, like some companies do selling batteries for the original ipods.
