Borrowing a page from computer resellers, Target is selling previously owned iPods, including some of those in the latest colors. It's unclear where exactly these players came from, but Target says they've all been "quality tested." In any case, as Chip Chick points out, it's a chance to try one out at a good price if you've been holding out for them to get cheaper.
We admit it: We're suckers for Peanuts. Especially around the holidays, when we get to hear the Vince Guaraldi Trio everywhere. It's one of the few childhood memories we have that doesn't involve getting beaten up by our older brothers.
That's why we were happy to see Snoopy on this iPod Nano, rather than yet another gadget adorned by the evil Hello Kitty. Japan's Run-At, which makes various products for Disney as well, has released 1,000 of the limited-edition iPods for the second year in a row with the famed beagle wearing headphones etched … Read more
Practically every other day we see a new article of clothing that can support the iPod. So why not actually make clothes out of the iPod itself? Apparently someone has finally made a reality out of that logical extreme.
Shiny Shiny happily reports that a company called PodDress is offering several types of iPod Nano patches that it claims are the "first and only embroidered cases" for the ubiquitous music player. The line ranges from "Classic" (black and white) to various neon colors and--of course--the "Swarovski Special Editon." Is there anything that Swarovski won'… Read more
If you aren't careful, your iPod could easily get stolen. It's a fact of life, right? Well, it doesn't have to be, according to the creators of the iDisguise iPod Nano cases. They're cleverly designed to look like they're for toting around breath mints, not music players. Inside, a foam core keeps your iPod snuggly and scratch-free, and if all goes well, potential thieves will ignore the camouflaged iPod entirely (assuming, of course, that they aren't trying to steal mints). The iDisguise comes in both peppermint and wintergreen variations.
Anti-theft implications aside, it could … Read more
Underscoring the unmatched marketing prowess of Steve Jobs once again, the crimson Nano will be getting another round of press--and the addition of an 8GB model--as it makes its debut on Apple's online store today. As you'll recall, $10 of each sale will be designated for Bono's (Product) Red campaign against AIDS in Africa.
The only question is whether any will be left if Oprah places another order.

What would you get if you crossed an iPod with an LG Chocolate? If you've actually pondered that question, we delicately suggest that you get out more.
But some people, like the editors at Mobile Magazine, get paid to think such big thoughts, and we're glad they do. Because that's a perfect way to describe the latest version of the "Pico" by Luxpro, a thin MP3 player that combines the design of a Nano with Chocolate-like features such as touch-sensitive buttons. It also has a 1.5-inch color screen, FM radio, and USB connection. But … Read more
Yeah, yeah, I know. Halloween was yesterday. No more "spooky" gadgets allowed on Crave until next October.
But I couldn't resist Podstar's sweet new Diablo Spectrum skins for the 2GB iPod Nano, which I found on Notcot. Not only do they keep your little iPod safe from bumps and scratches, these skins have horns. And a tail. And even a crazy little earring. They come in six colors, from "Black Jack" to "Martial Martian."
The Diablo Spectrum skins are so cool-looking, they just might be an exception to the "devil horns … Read more
