XtremeMac iPod accessories

XtremeMac is offering back-to-school iPod accessories as parents and students prepare for their return to dorms and classrooms. The company is shipping its MicroMemo (shown at right), a digital recorder, and Tango, an iPod speaker system with audio/video line out, both of which are designed to turn an iPod into a useful study tool. MicroMemo takes advantage of the video iPod's high-fidelity audio capabilities to record and play back verbal notes, interviews, podcasts or lectures. The accessory can also record language lessons to help reinforce proper pronunciation and accent or for recording oral homework. MicroMemo supports line-in recording directly from instruments or digital mixers to aid music students, and is priced at $60 (pricing and availability for the Tango speaker system were unavailable).

Tango is a speaker system with a subwoofer that works with all iPod models featuring a dock connector. The accessory offers an audio/video line out port allowing users to play video content stored on the iPod through a TV for more convenient viewing, which is particularly useful for course lectures and other podcast materials available from many educational institutions.
