The world’s most popular MP3 player isn¡¯t making the world a boring white earbud place The world’s most popular MP3 player isn`t making the world a boring white earbud place. In fact, your iPod could be as individualistic as you ?thanks to the boffins who make accessories like these.
FM Transmitter | Griffin iTrip Auto
For: Broadcasting your music over a FM channel for wireless music enjoyment on stereo or car.
Products like the iTrip have revolutionized the way people listen to music in the car. With the iPod and FM transmitter, the CD changer feels obsolete like a cassette deck in an old Datsun and the MP3 CD player feels like it is so much trouble for only 700MB worth of music in a CD-R. Plug in the iTrip Auto (which includes a car charging capability) and set the FM station to an unused frequency ?you have your own radio station! No more annoying radio DJs, stupid radio commercials or Hitz.FM Morning Crew Rewinds.

For: Party fun and lighting up the click-wheel at night.
Your iPod will light up and be the life of the party with multiple light colours and motion-activated lighting sequences.

Suddenly your iPod is fun in the dark, with or without speakers or headphones. Get up, get up, get up and shake your music maker.

This is proof that there`s always a place in the world for natural beauty.

For: Flexible roll-up casing protection and compartments to store other ingredients for fun.
The California Roll is a unique wrap`n go design for versatility in storage with three compartments for earphones, monies, touch n go cards or the likes. Just like the real sushi deal, it`s a simple design that`s easy and fun. There`s the built-in elastic band that secures the contents and the high-tech synthetic materials that do their part to protect your €˜precious? It`s a pleasant departure from the blocky and single-purpose protective cases.

The tempo armband keeps your full-size iPod or nano safe yet accessible while you hike, jog, ride, canoe, sky-dive, get your gardening done, or just hang around the house. It`s machine washable, so you`ll never worry about sweat or dirt halting your mojo. If you`re taking it jogging, you can pair it with the Disko nano for blinking lights or have the reflective strips on the Tempo to offer more visibility after dark. Isn`t that half the point of owning an iPod ?to be seen?
Hold Em?Up | Griffin iSqueez
For: Making use of the cup holder in the car to carry your favourite MP3 player.
There might not be many places to have your iPod nicely working in the car, especially when using the FM transmitter. It`ll slide around, and if placed flat on the dash the gorgeous screen is taken away from your view. Well, that sucks. But what if we told you, that the cup holder could finally hold your iPod and keep the controls within reach from the driver`s seat? Thanks to the iSqueez, you may not be able to drink and drive anymore but you can certainly groove and drive. And that`s legal!
