  1. – has a lot of marware stuff – so it just might show up in your local apple store.
    – directly from, there (main) distributor
    – directly from
    (they even use webobjects)
    – check your local dealer (maybe even sports and not IT related), marware is actually a pretty big brand, so lots of iPod shops carry them…

  2. Dunno if I totally agree with you, LinuxGuy, I mean Apple has been very smart about choosing it’s partners so far.. Part of the iPod is a level of quality associated with the brand. By carefully choosing who can make stuff for the iPod, Apple has made a good deal of money off the accessory market, while consumer still have over 3,000 products to chose from.

    I see the benefits and the problems with opening up the system. I don’t think it’s a slam dunk either way, and I don’t think Apple is being foolish by not including a SDK at this time.

    hmmm.. MDN keyword “include”

  3. yeah i cant wear nike’s they are too skinny. for me they are a very uncomfortable shoe–especially the golf shoes. Adidas on the other hand is the best in my opinion. walking around in them is a dream–even brand new ones! Nike’s are made for people with skinny feet.
