Thodio sure isn’t the first company to try the wooden approach to iPod accessories, but despite its boring name there’s something about the iBox that intrigues me.
This solid, handcrafted iPod amp features a wooden, high gloss lacquered cabinet. The basic models are built in either oak, teak or mahogany but other woods can be used on request. The battery is rechargable and lasts for about 15 hours and the whole thing offers 2 x 25 watts output power.

Vestalife will launch the Ladybug iPod / iPhone Speaker Dock at CES International in Las Vegas in January 2008 (it won the CES Innovation Design and Engineering Award you know). This amplified speaker system sports stereo speakers, a subwoofer, LED volume level indicators, a USB port for synchronization and a remote control – I guess I don’t have to mention that it looks like a ladybug, do I?

Is it just me or does the Triple Timer kitchen timer resemble a certain MP3 player? Well, I can imagine two reasons to get this $20 timer:
1) You want people to think you’ve actually bought a second iPod just to keep track of your cooking times.
2) You’re the kind of guy who likes to give fake gifts to your nephew, just to watch him cry when he realizes that he’s been fooled. Again.
Anway, if you want one you better get it before Apple’s lawyers spot it. Even though the scroll-wheel is becoming somewhat obsolete these days they eat companies that produces stuff like this for breakfast.

Xtreme Mac’s MicroMemo turns any iPod Classic+2nd/3rd gen Nano or Video into a portable audio recorder. Just plug in the detachable microphone and hit a button to record audio content directly to your iPod.
The main focus is on voice memos (meetings, interviews, random deep thoughts etc) but it seems to work well with other sources as well since you can hook up anything you like using the 3.5mm jack.
The recording time is displayed on the iPod screen in real-time and it’s available in both white and black.
