iPod and accessories..

Sampled the new iPod? It now comes with 30GB and 60GB versions, enough to take the entire songs collections with you. To think of it, you could also use it as an external drive and carry it along with you.

The new iPod boasts up to 20 hours of battery life(5), five hours more than before. Plus, you get a bigger display and one more iPod color — sleek black. But here’s the kicker: At under half an inch thin, the new 30GB iPod takes up about 45 percent less room than the original iPod. Even the new 60GB model is over 10 percent thinner than the fourth-generation 30GB iPod.

If you have an iPod, do some more with its host of accesories.

  • Radio Remote: Listen to FM radio on your iPod and control everything with a convenient wired remote.
  • iPod AV Connection Kit: Bring your music, photo and video library into your living room. This kit includes everything you need to connect your iPod to your home stereo or television.
