Who needs a computer, anyway?

iLoad lets you load your iPod without a PC

The personal computer has long been accused of having far more functions than the average bear would ever use. (Can you say Windows?) It's the reason that we have such backlash products and services as Presto, which allows your digitally challenged loved ones to receive e-mail printouts without a PC.

The latest product to join this trend is the "iLoad," which Fosfor Gadgets says lets you transfer music or video from CDs, television, set-top boxes or mobile phones to your iPod without a computer at all. The idea sounds good, but its $300 price may still be a deal-breaker considering how cheap PCs are these days. On the other hand, if all you want is to transfer media, it's probably a lot easier to use--and it probably won't break down nearly as much as a computer.
