I was a very early adopter – and advocate – of the Nike+iPod system. Apple and Nike developed an easy and fun way to track running data on the iPod nano and the Nikeplus.com website.

Walt Mossberg’s review of Samsung’s Instinct phone in today’s Wall Street Journal is the kind of article that almost makes me ashamed to be an Apple fan.

Danish blogger, climber, and Mac enthusiast Jonas Rabbe has posted a thorough review of his new Nike+iPod Sport Kit. While Nike+iPod reviews are a dime-a-dozen these days, Jonas includes an insightful look at how the Sport Kit experience could be improved, which makes the review well worth reading.
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 […]
