I have had a shuffle for about 6 months now, and so far so great. It has come in handy a number of times, and I also use it as my primary flash drive. Here is my quick question; Is there a utility out there that will let me check on my Mac how much of a charge it currently has? The color system is fine for all intents and purposes, but something tells me that there has to be some method by which it calculates its own charge (it does have to tell you that it is done charging after all). Doesn't it stand to reason that there must be some system for calculating its current capacity? If this exists, and I just don't know it then that's cool. I think this would be a neat utility to have.
