I love Apple, but it seems like they live to confuse me. For every four things they do that convince me their artists/engineers/designers are brilliant, there's going to be one move they make that irritates me to no end. One example of this would be dropping the USB connector from the 2G shuffle. While I love the clip design, I thought part of the appeal to the original shuffle was the ability to use it as a thumbdrive. Rather than need two key-sized components, just load your music and docs on the shuffle and be on your way. True, all the iPods offer the USB cable, but that's nowhere near as convenient. But, for whatever reason, Apple dropped it. Would it be possible that they'd re-introduce it in the 3G shuffle, even if there isn't a 3G until next year?
