Wouldn't it be cool to have an adapter which allows you to get new music to your shuffle with your regular iPod? iPod to iPod doesn't break any of the DRM restrictions 'cause either way you'd need extra software to pull it back to a computer.

I just think it'd be nice to be able to fill up the shuffle from a playlist on the bigger iPod.

What would stop people from trading music that way?

You still can't get the music off that iPod without some 3rd party software anyway, so its just as "secure" as what Apple is doing now.

Plus it requires two iPods, one being a small shuffle, and an extra piece of hardware. It's not like people will just run into each other and duplicate libraries on the fly. You have to plan it which is why it would work well for trips and the like. You could take your whole library with you but still use the shuffle when you're out running around.
