Does grease void your iPod warranty?

Puts a new meaning to toasting your iPod.

I’ll have an 80GB with lettuce, tomatoes and Heinz 57 to go.

Just what I needed! I’ve always wanted to connect my $300 iPod to a HEAT SOURCE! All that dripping grease can only enhance the iPod’s design and functionality. And with that whopping 10 watts of speaker power, MAYBE I’ll be able to hear a few notes over the sizzling sounds!

What’s next? An iPod vacuum cleaner?

Cause when I hold backyard BBQs, I always think… “Man, if I could only grill my food and play my music for the whole yard with ONE device, life would be complete.”

This just might be more ridiculous then thing toilet paper holder w/ an iPod Dock.  This is worse because it’s from a widely popular brand.

and with the release of one new product, both the iPod Accessory market AND the i____ product naming craze reach an all new, terrible low.

Well, if this wasn’t an electric model I’d say I know the demographic catered to, but they need MORE POWER. *argh*

What is it with these inventor people!!!??? Do they not know that there are dozens of speaker docks on the market that mean you can use an iPod anywhere already….and that the iGrill,iBed,iSofa,iToilet Roll Holder,iSink,iDishwasher,iGarden Seat,iIroning Board are completely superfluous!?
I doubt you’ll hear 10 watts of speaker power over the sizzling of your brain food anyway!!

??? Is it April 1 again??

@Rob, oh the inventors get it all right.  They get that there are plenty of iMorons who will shell out $150 for this and other similarly silly products.  It doesn’t have to make sense or work well or server a purpose - it just needs to sell.
