Mix: Wireless iPods, 5G demand, AutoPod, iBoxer

A Citigroup analyst is speculating that iPods will have wireless capabilities in 2006. He notes that iPod part supplier PortalPlayer is looking to acquire a small company with a wireless technology portfolio.

Demand for Apple’s fifth-generation (video) iPod is on par with the company’s iPod nano, and may be proving more popular in some retail locations, according to a Bear Stearns retail survey.

Digital Lifestyle Outfitters has lowered the price of its DLO AutoPod Car Charger for iPod, iPod nano and iPod mini to $20 (from $30)

If you like to rock out in just your underwear, the iBoxer might be for you. It’s a $22 men’s knit boxer with an integrated front pocket for an iPod.

Wireless capabilities? Could this possibly mean an FM tuner anytime soon?

It could mean FM tuner, but I would put money on bluetooth.  Wireless sync!

Some comedians here in Australia had the iboxer idea months ago. And no some fools think it is a good idea.
