I know I’m not the only one who likes to take the iPhone to bed (I’ve seen iJustine do it a time or two). It’s perfect for checking RSS feeds, Digg, and email before dozing off. The trouble is that I like to lay on my side while reading, and there’s just no comfortable way […]

I hate to throw out another iPod watch rumor while we’re still waiting for the Nike+iPod watches to hit the street, but it looks like Timex might be getting into the game according to a PowerPoint presentation recently sent to sporting goods distributors. Information is pretty sketchy at this point, but the i-Control is a […]
I have to admit, I’m not a big fan of iPod armbands. I don’t find them comfortable, I don’t think they look especially good around my arm, and I’m not sure how necessary they really are. When I run, I usually just hold my iPod in my hand or clip it to my waistband. Why […]
I don’t think I’ve mentioned it here before, but one of my long-time hobbies is making mixtapes. I started back in high-school with a record player and a cassette recorder, cutting songs together with the pause button. While I’m still strictly an amateur DJ, my gear has improved over the years. Instead of a cassette […]
I got a kick out of this creative video from Serge Lipski demonstrating iBlinds: A new generation accessory that interacts with your iPod or iPhone through your window blinds. Superior performance and technology that drives iBlinds to create innovative dynamic living room space through your own music. OK, if you haven’t figured it out by […]
A reader who has seen Nike’s Spring 2007 product catalog, which has been distributed to Nike retailers, confirmed the existence of the Nike+ watches… and adds some juicy new details.
When XtermeMac announced the Luna iPod alarm clock ($149) in November, it really grabbed my attention. I’m not the kind of person who drools over every shiny new iPod gadget that comes along, and I’ve never given more than a passing thought to buying an iPod alarm clock, but the Luna’s combination of features and […]
Ever wonder why it’s so difficult to find iPod nano cases or armband that are guaranteed to fit the Nike+iPod Sport Kit receiver? I spent several days at Macworld last week, speaking to the dozens of iPod accessory makers on the Expo floor, in an attempt to find out. I wasn’t prepared for some of […]
A reader has pointed me to a clever German product which attaches the Nike+iPod sensor to any running shoe, the Chip-Clip. This clear plastic cap fits on the tongue of the shoe and features a slot to thread a shoelace through, which keep the cap in place. There’s also an extended lip at the front […]
It looks like Apple’s iTunes store wasn’t the only site to buckle under the pressure of increased holiday traffic. Nike’s Nikeplus.com, the site where Nike+iPod Sport Kit users upload their running data and track their progress, has been hit with slowdowns and service outages for the past couple of days. I didn’t write about it […]
Yes, I was happy that Nike (finally) released desktop widgets for tracking Nike+iPod workouts and challenge stats, but honestly, no one but me ever sees my desktop. I can’t for the life of me figure out why there isn’t an official Nike+ plugin or widget for popular blogging platforms. The Nike+iPod Sport Kit seems to […]
The crafty blogger over at Yarn-A-Go-Go has posted instructions on knitting your own shoe pouch for the Nike+iPod Sport Kit sensor. It should be a pretty easy project for someone with basic knitting skills, and the finished product looks much better than most of the other popular “shoe hacks.”
