USB turntable takes iPod for a spin

New model transfers vinyl tunes to MP3 files through built-in dock.

Starting sometime around the last holiday season , it seemed for awhile that the USB turntable was at the top of gadget lists everywhere. So it makes sense that Ion , one of the original manufacturers, would look to repeat that success again this year with a new model.

Enter the "iPod USB Turntable," which not only connects to the computer but turns vinyl tunes into digital files and transfers them directly to the fifth-generation iPod and second-generation Nano through a built-in dock. It's yet another excuse not to throw out those moldy LPs in the basement. Besides, you know you've been eyeing that " Record Flattener " anyway.
