iPod accessory makers come up with some very odd products

“The early, runaway success of Apple Computer’s iPod has spawned a whole ecosystem of third-party suppliers pushing accessories for the music player—everything from scratch-resistant cases to colorful ear buds to high-fidelity speakers that will turn the music player into a digital boom box. Some estimates put the value of the iPod accessory market in the neighborhood of $1 billion,” Ian Sager reports for BusinessWeek.

“iPod add-ons have gone, shall we say, fringe. There’s a growing list of weird and wacky accessories that range from a leather thong case (it’s not what you think) to a dock that doubles as a toilet-tissue holder,” Sager reports.

  1. I’ve never been much for purchasing the more novelty iPod accessories, as I prefer style and functionality. However, I don’t condemn them, as some are good for looking at and getting a chuckle. Clever, original ideas, just not useful enough to drop money on them.
