One more thing you won’t see Wednesday – The Treo iPod: Here’s a product I guarantee Steve Jobs won’t be introducing at the big Apple product announcement Wednesday at 10 a.m., PDT. It’s a nano-hack I doubt you’ll ever see on any reputable gadget weblog or on the pages of Make magazine.
It’s something I call the iPod Treo. It’s designed to allow you to put a Treo and an iPod in the same pocket without having them scratching up against one another. It allows you to have a cell phone with camera, web browser and a thousand MP3s, photos, podcasts or audiobooks all velcro’d together.
Here’s what you’ll need:
An iPod nano
A Treo (my 600 is pictured)
Veclcro® Sticky-Back® fastners (black pictured, white available, a $1.79 for a package of 12)
Attach as shown and slip into coat pocket.
Strengths: Feature packed and funky.
Weaknesses: Redundant features and weird looks from strangers.
Warning: If you’re crazy enough to do this, you’ll not want to display it in public as it will void any cool-factor you perhaps may garner from showing off your iPod nano.
Note: I’m not seriously suggesting anyone do this.
