Worst iPod Gadgets

Just like last Christmas, crap iPod related gadgets, clothing and other accessories are everywhere! Many of you are probably getting and giving iPod-related Christmas presents this year. With this in mind, here’s a list of iPod gadgets and accessories you may want to avoid. If you happen to get any of these gadgets under your Xmas tree, you have our deepest sympathy.

iPod Panties
iGroove iPod panties, made by Sexy Society. These are panties that feature a built-in iPod pouch.
These might be the world’s greatest iPod panties, but who wants to open them or try them on in front of their family? Even worse, the incident could get captured on camera and end up on Flickr.

iPod Toilet Paper Dispenser
The iCarta toilet paper dispenser/iPod player.
Am I the only want thinking that the last thing I want anyone doing in the bathroom is making a #$#@ playlist for using the toilet.

iPod Jeans
Equally annoying to receive would be Levi’s iPod jeans. These are like regular jeans, except that they feature built-in iPod support.

Not too bad of an idea, but don’t even think about giving these as Christmas presents! Instead of thinking that Levi’s iPod jeans are cool, the recipient will be angry that you spent $250…..and bought them a pair of #$%@ iPod jeans.

iPod Chairs
Another holiday no-no are the iPod chairs available at Pottery Barn and other stores.
The iChair rocks your rear, but it’s also a massive, expensive accessory for a music gadget that will be out of date in a couple of years.

iPod Bras
Back to underwear….Guys, getting your significant other an iPod bra is a good way to ruin Christmas. The iPod bra has been called “the single most important iPod accessory ever”, but it’s also potential disaster for your relationship.
If it’s the wrong size, things could get ugly. If it actually fits, she’ll think that you think she needs to exercise, and things could get ugly. If she loves it and people start staring at her because of that boxy lump between her breasts, things could get ugly.

The iDisguise
Another iPod accessory to avoid at Christmas is the fake Altoids iPod case: ipod case idisguise.
Sure - the case is kind of cool. But, give somebody a case like this and they will think that you not only made this in your basement on Christmas eve, but that you’re so cheap that you don’t even buy real Altoids.

iBoxerJust like the iPod bra and panties are probably no-no’s as Christmas gifts, the iBoxer should be off limits at the holidays.

The Play iBoxer is a cotton/spandex blend button fly boxer, with a discreet front pocket for holding an iPod, other mp3 players or your cell phone. As the manufacturer says, “Answering the call may take on a new meaning.”

Ladies - some guys may revel in the idea of frolicking under the Christmas tree in their underwear. Keep in mind, though, that that’s only the start of the day.

Do you really want your guy spending the rest of Christmas walking around playing air guitar with a noticeable crotch-bulge?

iLoad iPod Loader

iLoad with PuppyThe iLoad, a device that copies CDs to an iPod at high speed without using a computer or requiring an Internet connection, seemed like an interesting device at first. According to the company’s advertisements, it not only helps you load your iPod, it can help you get lucky.

But then we realized that anybody that has an iPod already uses their computer to load it with music……

iPod Breathalyzer

We have already featured this gadget on this site but thought it was worth the mention again.
The iBreath iPod breathalyzer is one of the most potentially dangerous iPod Christmas presents you could buy:

  • First of all, nothing says “I think you’re a lush” like buying someone an iPod Breathalyzer.
  • Second of all, the thing only goes up to .12 % blood alcohol levels, so the recipient will think that you think they are a lightweight.
  • Third, drinking one’s way through all 2hr 31min of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest could easily push the device to its limits!

iPod Vibrator for Two

Our vote for the World’s Worst iPod-Related Christmas Gift goes to the iBuzz Two, an iPod vibrator that sports two vibrating attachments.

It’s hard to imagine when it would be appropriate to give someone a vibrator for two that sports a vibrating bunny attachment, but we’re pretty sure Christmas isn’t the time.

As a Christmas gift, the iBuzz has multiple strikes against it:
  • First, the pink “rabbit stimulator” just ain’t right.
  • Second, if the pictures end up on Flickr, it will make the iPod panty pictures look pretty tame by comparison.
  • Third, if you can wear ear buds during sex, you’re probably not doing it right.
