Cable Question

Bear with me people.

I'm waiting for my ipod shuffle to arrive that I ordered from apple the other day. My USB port is at the back of my computer so I don't want to have to crawl on my hands and knees under my computer to plug it in.

I don't really want to buy the ipod shuffle dock so I'm just going to buy a USB cable extender.

Dumb question now: What kind do I get? Do I want:
USB A-type plug to B-type plug cable or
USB 2.0 A-type plug to A-type plug?

I want to A to A one right? Or am I completely off base?

And also, I've seen gold plated USB cables. Does it really make a difference in the speed?

Thanks a ton!

you want A female to A male (sometimes you might see "AA MF" used to describe it). you can buy them on ebay for around $5 shipped.

gold plated wont change a thing.
