So close, and yet...

Hat tip to David for pointing this out to me: my dreamed-of iPod wristwatch control is almost a reality. The trouble is, these guys did a rotten job of executing the concept: for starters, if you look at the controls they're oriented the wrong way, so to use them properly you'd have to hold your wrist straight out in front of you instead of looking at it like a wristwatch. Second, there's no wristwatch – this device should have the watch built in and a way to switch between the digital clock face and a readout of track listings and so on. And third, this sucker won't work with the new iPods and nanos, which lack the little tab slot on the top. Three strikes and you're out, Scosche – but please practice up and come back for another swing!
