Mix: Subaru, Nokia, iFlash, Harrington


Subaru has announced that select models of its 2008 Impreza will offer iPod integration as an accessory. The integration kit allows customers to control most iPod functions through the dashboard “head unit”, including playback control and text display of playlist, artist, album and song information.

Nokia has launched a new advertising campaign that features the slogans “Phones should be open to anything.” and “The best devices have no limits.”, both direct shots at Apple’s closed-system iPhone.

Jeweler John Harrington is offering a “Diamond Shuffle”, a second-generation iPod shuffle customized with Harrington’s “Renaissance” design and set with five diamonds. It sells for £300, or roughly $610.
