The 'i-Snake'--go figure

It's an accessory, but what for?

We've grown somewhat weary of iPod and MP3 accessories, as should be abundantly clear to anyone who reads this space regularly (all two of you). But everytime we're tempted to impose a moratorium, one comes along that we just can't resist. Today's example: the "i-Snake."

We don't know where to begin, but let's start with what we like: its name. Things start to go south in a hurry after that. One immediate question is its use--if there's an obvious one, we plead blind ignorance. Another point is its design, if it can be called that. That clamp looks like something right out of high school woodshop.

The i-Snake site says it's "very helpful if you've ever tried to watch Dane Cook's routine while working on a spreadsheet." At least you've got to hand it to them for knowing their market.
