Now these fit the Apple styling.  Almost like a picture frame, and imaging an iPod Photo scrolling through pictures in that.  Good work.

I’d say podboard has been infringed. Do you have a corporate lawyer?

yeah, its a copy, but the styling isn’t patentable… only the features are…  if it wasn’t protected by a patent or the equivilant, than I’d say your S.O.L.  For what its worth, I like the this one better.  I don’t care for the rivets in the swiss ones.

Not that it isn’t funtional, but is it really worth the Adjectives ‘sexy’ and ‘BEAUTIFUL’

What a neat accessory!  It’s amazing how something so simple can be so pretty… and functional… More colors to come?

Dude, what a rip from the podboard folks.

WOW, it seems like it’s an upgrade from PodBoard, making refined changes to the leg and iPod support. There should be a neon light or some light support around the cutout.
Does anyone know if the metal body interupts signal transfers from the iTrip? Metal is known to shield signals!
