Hex Vision Classic Leather Watch Band for 6G iPod nano: Good-looking, reasonably priced

When the first watch bands started appearing for iPod nanos, I really thought the idea was ludicrous.

Hex watch bands for iPod nano on pre-order now

Now that's a good looking nano watch. We've covered a few iPod nano watch bands before, but to me, they've always seemed kind of cheap and hinky, more hacks than things that you'd actually wear out and about. But I really like this new band from Hex Vision -- it's a stainless steel band with a...

Kickstarter-sponsored WALdok is a speaker dock that plugs into your wall

It takes quite a bit for me to be impressed with yet another speaker dock. I run my music through some pretty good PC speakers, so I don't really have a need for a separate speaker to play music directly from my iPhone. But something about the WALdok appeals to me. It's a tiny dock that plugs into...

iPod nano built into Dreamcast VMU

I saw the new iPad nano for the first time this weekend, and though I knew it was small, of course, I was surprised by just how small it was. Despite the tiny little touchscreen, it really is about the size of the old shuffle. In fact, it's small enough to fit inside one of the old Visual Memory...
