Is this new shuffle "dock cable" just a headphone plug -> USB cord?

    I haven't been able to find any definitive info on this, but it appears from a pic on the website that it's just a USB to 1/8mm headphone jack cable. Is that the case? If so, neat... although that will be a funny looking cable :eek:.

    Looks like this new headphone remote is the Apple standard from now on. I hope it doesn't become totally worthless after sweat like the old one. I use my shuffle for working out. I plan on sweating. If sweat will ruin the controls, kinda defeats the purpose...

    Take a strong look at the headphone jack. It has 3 connectors, not 2 like the normal headphone jack.
