A new television commercial for the Nike+iPod Sport Kit has started airing in the U.S. The 30-second spot features the song “Here It Goes Again” by the band OK Go. It’s great to see some more mainstream advertising for the Sport Kit, especially at a time of year when so many people will be getting […]

Nike, Inc. announced higher than expected 2nd quarter earnings earlier today, only minutes after their stock had risen nearly 4% to its highest price in over ten years. Nike reported that second-quarter net income rose to $325.6 million ($1.28 per share) compared with $301.1 million ($1.14 per share) a year earlier. Revenue increased 10 percent, […]
I’ve added another Nike+iPod sensor accessory to my Shoe Hacks Round-up: The LaceLid. It’s a simple hard rubber “cap” which fits over the Nike+iPod sensor, and is attached to your shoe by running your laces through holes at the top and bottom. At $5, the LaceLid is one of the cheapest and simplest Nike+iPod shoe […]

Apple’s new iPod shuffle looks like it’s going to be one of the best-selling gadgets this holiday season, and as we all know, behind every popular iPod comes a tidal wave of accessories. Well, they’re starting to trickle in. One that will certainly be of interest to runners is DLO’s new armband for the second-generation […]
Macworld announced the winners of their 22nd annual Editors’ Choice Awards yesterday, and the Nike+iPod Sport Kit was among the 29 winners. While that in itself isn’t very surprising, what is surprising is that the Sport Kit was the only iPod-related product to make the list. No shuffle, no nano, not even the toilet paper […]
It’s been four months since I first stuck the Nike+iPod sensor to my Saucony shoe and posted the results to this site. Since that time a lot things have happened in the Nike+iPod world. Not only have other people come up with some pretty clever and practical shoe-hacking methods of their own, but several commercial […]
I may have just met the iPod alarm clock of my dreams… and her name is Luna. XtremeMac’s Luna is a great-looking bedside alarm clock/radio/stereo system that’s compatible with iPod minis, iPod nanos, 4G iPods, and 5G iPods (video) via a top docking port, and most any other audio player (including older iPods and the […]
There are already a number of good options for attaching the Nike+iPod Sport Kit sensor to a non Nike+ shoe, but in my opinion the best continue to be the ones that weren’t originally designed for the job.
We’ve got iPods connected to our cars, our alarm clocks, our TVs, our jeans, our winter coats, and yes, even our shoes. So what could be the next frontier of iPod integration? With the recent announcement of Adonis Furniture’s iRocker 250 chair, I guess you could say this is the dawning of the Age of […]
Ok, so this may not count as a breakthrough discovery, it’s actually more of a revelation: Apple’s fifth-generation iPod with video works really well as a video player when connected to a television… and there’s a cheap, simple way to hook it up.
If you’ve read my early accounts of running with the Nike+iPod Sport Kit, you’ll know I was extremely pleased with the accuracy of the sensor right out of the box, especially because I was using it with a pair of Saucony Hurricane shoes and not the special Nikes. Since then, I’ve heard from several people […]
