With this iRing, they do wed

Sorry, this Bluetooth controller is only a concept for now.

No, this isn't from today's Main Event . But as the Apple hype machine churns at full throttle before the opening act, it's only natural for people to dream.

To wit: The "iRing" is an ingenious concept that combines fashion jewelry and iPod control with built-in Bluetooth technology to adjust volume and playback. Following the iPhone's touch-screen influence, it has touch-sensitive "function strip" too--though we wonder how practical it is for a piece of hand jewlery to have that feature, as it would seem to get bumped around a bit and might accidentally blast your eardrums out of your skull.

But the cradle is a good idea to avoid losing it, which is bound to happen. And that would be disastrous, because we're certain that more than a few fan boys and girls would wear them as wedding rings.
