Mix: AAPL, Nike+iPod, Taiwan sales, Odd add-ons

Following yesterday’s positive third-quarter financial results, Apple shares surged $6.33, or 12 percent, to $60.43 in early trading Thursday.

The Nike+iPod Sport Kit gets favorable reviews from The Wall Street Journal’s Walt Mossberg and USA Today’s Edward Baig. The kit is also Time’s Gadget of the Week.

DigiTimes reports that iPod sales are slow in Taiwan. “The sales volume of Apple’s iPod nano and iPod video players in the Taiwan market has shrunk to below 20,000 units a month since May this year due to strong competition from the latest MP3 players from Samsung and SanDisk.”

BusinessWeek has posted a list of its “10 Oddest iPod Accessories.” “Just when you thought add-ons for Apple’s digital music player couldn’t get more unusual, here’s a look at some doozies,” says the magazine.
