Like a tiny recording studio for your Nano, the Xtreme Mac MicroMemo puts your iPod to work recording 16-bit audio via a tiny boom mic or any microphone with a 3.5mm plug. The back of the MicroMemo integrates a small speaker for immediate playback, and the device integrates with iTunes for managing your recordings. Look for the MicroMemo on sale in late spring 2009 for about $80.

Energizer's table looks old-fashioned compared with the wireless power demonstration around the corner, but these disposable "Advanced Lithium" batteries are brand-new to the market.
