  1. “Love the running one but would be thrilled with one for my bike!!”

    Combination GPS & iPod Bike Computer?! Oh man, I would be so there. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”surprised” style=”border:0;” />

  2. who’s to say you have to share your real name with Nike or you could create 8 logins and enter “data” for nine different users? Or attach it to your dog in your backyard ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” /> You could log in from work or home or some other log in point – I mean, sure 60% of the reason Nike does it is to collect data but 40% is that while they could crate or sell software that runs on your machine but that takes a lot more effort and tech support for disribution – having it run as a web app also saves them a lot of tech support issues and they can do an upgrade for everyone all at once …

  3. I did my part this morning. 8 km (5 miles), 137 km since mid November.

    Nike+iPod has really helped me get back into running afte I injured my Achilles tendon earlier this year, and is a lot more fun to work out with than a pulse monitor watch.
