[USE] Shuffle as Gran Turismo picture saver-thingie.


GT4 Shuffle

I'm sure you're all aware of this but if not this cleaver flickr user found out you could plug the shuffle (with option turned on in iTunes to allow it to be used as a USB drive) into the Playstation 2 to take save pictures you take in Gran Turismo 4. I have done this and it appears the PS2 also charges the shuffle. If you play a lot of PS2 than plugging in the shuffle will make it into possibly the worlds most expensive AC adapter.

I'm pretty sure most pc's cost more than an ipod shuffle, therefore the ps2 wouldn't be the most expensive charger.

What do you mean, do you need to play the ps2 for a while for it to be able to charge the shuffle? Or can you make it charge the shuffle when you first turn it on?

turn the ps2 on with no cd in the tray, plug in shuffle, let charge, uplug, turn off ps2. Nothing special to do. ;)

Will an X-box control charger port charge an I-pod shuffle without harming it? Any help appreciated.
