Ipod Enabled [insert random object here]

For a while I thought the current trend to iPod enable everything from toilet paper dispensers to backpacks was a bit amusing. But seriously, please make it stop. An iPod enabled shirt? A guy could get beat up for wearing something like that in my neighborhood.

How about a bank account enabled Mc-iPod?

Earlier this month, McDonald's Japan shipped 10,000 MP3 players as prizes in a competition they organized with Coca-Cola.

The players, carrying the McDonald's "M" logo, were shipped with 10 preloaded songs.

Unfortunately, the players were also preloaded with a variant of the QQPass password-stealing trojan. We haven't seen these players ourselves, so we can't confirm how exactly you would get hit by this trojan, but some sources report you only had to plug it into your Windows PC.

My wife just bought an iPod enabled high tech jogging shirt. If you mock her for it, you would be the guy that gets beaten up. Trust me. I know.

Yet another stupid iPod enabled article of clothing... the iSoundCap.

Ok found one that at first I thought was a joke, but sadly it is actually for sell at amazon: iBoxer.

Man I hope Apple doesn't get their iPod batteries from Sony.
