    Hey guys.

    I have an old USB to 3.5mm jack cable from an ipod shuffle.

    Can I do anything else useful with it or it was really only meant for use with the ipod?

    Yes, as the current supplied isn't enough to charge something like an iPod touch quickly enough. It is also specific to the model it was meant for.

    Meaning I have nothing else but to throw it away?

    I think you could try selling it in craigslist.

    Remember Murphy's cable corollary: Any previously useless cable, once discarded, will become essential and irreplaceable 15 minutes after it becomes irretrievable.
