iPod-ready Levis reviewed

The BostonHearld has posted a review of Levi's recently announced iPod-ready jeans, which are expected to ship next month. The new jeans feature iPod design traits and controls for the media player integrated into the jeans themselves. The review calls some of these traits "a bit gaudy" but states, "The Levi's design team is unlikely to take insult at this fashion critique from a 41-year-old who is a few decades beyond the age of the targeted consumer." As we have learned from information releases on these jeans, they include a dock, a connector, a RedWire conductive ribbon (which is reportedly blue on men's jeans), the joystick and earbuds. The 'joystick' is sewn to a piece of denim which attaches inside the pocket of the jeans. moves in four directions to adjust volume, track, and pause and play with a click. The review names flaws in the included earbuds being uncomfortable and the overall ($250) price of the jeans -- the jeans received 3 out of stars. [image included]

    Wow!

    Exactly the product I was looking for! I can't believe such great functionality has been integrated into such a good looking form.

    Those are my genuine faux feelings.
