Got a new 2G shuffle? Do you know what those status lights indicate? Do you know the difference between the green-orange-orange pattern
and the green-orange-green-orange
one? What about a continuous blinking orange light
or red light
? Apple now has a nice little support article available
that explains all the subtleties of the 2nd generation iPod shuffle light patterns and what they mean, complete with easy-to-follow dot patterns. I'm not sure how useful this will be to readers with color-blindness, but for the rest of us it's a pretty fascinating read.

 iPod is busy. Do not disconnect.
 Your battery is about to die. Right. Now.
 There is no footnote 5. Does anyone have some chips or pretzels?
