Scosche tapSTICK

Scosche has quietly addressed the complaints of third-generation iPod shuffle owners today by introducing the tapSTICK. The device serves both as a case for the Apple player but also plugs into the headphone jack to place volume and selection buttons on top of the iPod itself, granting control over the player without needing specially authenticated earbuds. A pass-through jack lets owners either use their own earphones or else plug into aux-in jacks and other devices that normally wouldn't work with the shuffle.

The tapSTICK leaves the back clip exposed for its usual role and is available in either black or white. Scosche plans to ship its add-on the first week of July for $30. [via Crave]
