Ah, I love iPod cases. Each one seems to give new life to your iPod, or at the very least, it changes the personality of the iPod itself. A boring white iPod can look hip and fresh anew with a cool iPod case. And the hip and cool class of iPod cases is just what Griffin is going for with the new Disko.

The Disko brings what has always been missing to the iPod: flashing and chasing lights. I didn’t say you were missing this feature, just that the iPod was missing it.

Are you constantly dropping things? Fingers mashed in your car door? Constantly dropping your iPod Shuffle? Do you slip it in your pocket and forget you have your keys and change in there too? Are you a klutz?

Well, if you answered yes to any of the questions, then you need to provide an armor barrier around your Shuffle. As any military leader knows, you don’t go anywhere without your armor. With Griffin’s iVault, that’s exactly what iPod Shuffle users will now have for their Shuffle’s, armor.

TuneBox
Review

TuneBox

Price: $39.99

First off, I’m impressed with the speed at which Griffin has been pumping out products to support the iPod. Several of their recent offerings have already been reviewed on this website or given away for contests on the weekly MyMac.com podcast. So, of course, I wasn’t surprised to see the press release for the TuneBox, a portable speaker/charger for the iPod shuffle.

As I stated in a review of another iPod Shuffle product, there was one primary reason that I finally joined the iPod craze and bought myself an iPod Shuffle. I run. Three or four times a week, I run 2 miles, sometimes a bit more if I’m really on a good run day. The reason that I wanted an iPod was that I was tired of carrying my portable digital CD player or my “sport” portable tape cassette player or wearing the headphone radio that I constantly had to turn my head sideways to get a station that I could listen to somewhat clearly while I was running.

PowerMate
Review

On January 13, 2003, in Review, by Tim Robertson

PowerMate
Company: Griffin Technology

Price: $45.00

I had heard a few Mac people talking about the PowerMate, and up until a month ago, I simply shrugged my shoulders and went on my merry way. I knew it was some kind of volume knob that would glow or pulse or something, but that was about it. Just what I need, I thought, another USB device I won’t use.

Boy was I ever wrong!

First, yes, this thing is really cool. The one tested for this review is a machined aluminum, with a plastic base that sits on soft rubber. This prevents the things from being easily moved on your desktop. The bottom is also where the unit pulses and glows, giving off a very high-tech, eerie blue color.

The machined aluminum PowerMate (Mac and Windows compatible) acts as a scroll wheel, a volume control, and a host of other functions. I did not test functionality under any pre-Mac OS X, but the control panel located in the system preferences allows you to set a myriad number of functions. Everything from how the knob operates to the way the blue light displays is customizable. I particularly like the ability to have the PowerMate pulse at different speed rates.
