An iPod Nano for the tech illiterate

You can get an iPod Nano preloaded with your 50 favorite CDs--perfect for the tech illiterate or the really lazy.

So you really want to get that iPod Nano for a special someone, but you know he or she will be absolutely hopeless when presented with the task of transferring music to the thing? Or maybe you're just really lazy and can't be bothered with ripping your favorite CDs. Either way, Riptopia could have the solution for you: the $259 ShugaNano, a blue, pink, or green 4GB iPod Nano preloaded with the recipient's 50 favorite CDs and accompanied by a pair of Swarovski crystal-encrusted earbuds. (Hmm, why do I get the feeling these things are aimed at the fair sex?) You have to provide the CDs, but at least you won't have to waste your valuable time copying and transferring the tracks. Of course, this begs the question: how do you get those songs off of your iPod when the time comes? (Mac version here.)
