Belkin donates to Duke
yesterday announced shipment of its one-millionth iPod accessory. The company introduced its first accessory in April 2003 and its growing iPod line includes the TuneCast Mobile FM Transmitter, Backup Battery Pack, and Auto Kit as well as a Media Reader, a Voice Recorder, a Digital Camera Link, Universal Microphone Adapter, and TuneCast II Mobile FM Transmitter. The company says it will donate 1,650 Voice Recorders to Duke University's incoming freshmen to celebrate the milestone. As noted earlier this summer, Duke this week will distribute iPod MP3 players to freshmen as part of an initiative to encourage creative uses of technology in education and campus life. "We are pleased that we can support Duke's program to foster creativity in technology and education," continues Tong. "Students will be able to use our Voice Recorder for recording notes and discussions to their iPods."
