“Forget the $200 iPod bag from Gucci; it’s for cheapskates. The ultimate iPod accessory is Fendi’s Juke Box, a $1,500 carrying case for transporting multiple iPods.

It is lined with multicolored cloth and incorporates a pocket for holding up to a dozen iPods.
“Lest it seem like a joke, it is not. The purse is designed specifically as an iPod carrying case.
