Apple and Belkin today introduced new accessories for the iPod, including the ($50), which allows users to record voice notes on your iPod with date/time stamp. It also offers playback via a built-in speaker, your earbud headphones, or a Mac, automatically syncs voice memos to iTunes 4.1, and offers a travel alarm clock.
The new Belkin Media Reader ($100) allows you to directly transfer the images to your iPod via FireWire. It protects the media slots from pocket dust and dirt when not in use with sliding cover, a stow-away Dock Connector Cable, a LED indicator for power and data transfer status. The readers supports Compact Flash (Type 1 and 2), Smart Media, Secure Digital (SD), Memory Stick, and Multi Media Card (MMC) media. It runs on 4 AAA batteries (included) and has a 3-year warranty.
