We have received strong evidence that Burton and Apple will be releasing the Amp Pack backpack for iPod within the next week or two. The black Amp Pack features an iPod storage pocket on the back, headphone cable port on the left shoulder strap and sound system controls on the right shoulder strap using the same Softswitch Technology found on the Amp Jacket. It will cost about $200 and will be available through Burton retailers, and we are assuming Apple retail stores and online.
I'm a passionate, long-time lover of Apple products, and was a civil draftsman and graphic designer before creating the iLounge web site. My prior projects include work for The Los Angeles Times' LATimes.com, and the company Creative Domain, where I developed websites for clients including Columbia Pictures, Disney, Fox Studios, Universal Pictures and Warner Brothers. As the Publisher of iLounge, I direct the site's community forums, photo galleries, iPod User Group, and general business affairs, which have grown under my watch to over sixteen million page views every month. I'm happily married with one daughter, one dog (Rocket the Wonderdog), one cat (Ferris), many iPods, iPhones, iPads, and two turntables.
