Griffin today announced , a headphone/audio splitter designed for iPod users. The accessory enables users to share music and videos with a friend and is designed for "car trips, plane flights, waiting rooms--anywhere you're in the mood to share. Plug SmartShare into the mini-jack of any iPod, MP3, CD, portable DVD player or laptop computer and invite a friend to a party of two. Since some partygoers like their music and soundtracks louder than others (you know who you are), Griffin has integrated a slim volume control slider into each of SmartShare's output jacks. Share your music, not your volume preferences." It is priced at $20 and will begin shipping in February.
