Is the world going iPod MAD? No! But, Worth1000.com contestants attempt to creatively show us what Steve is conjuring up in R&D’s Apple facility. It’s going to be a close competition. These contestants are more than talented and creative. From the iPuff cigarettes to the Ipiano, these guys are giving it all they’ve got.
The iWatch caught my attention looking so much ever like the Ipod Nano and with all the features. This could definitely be a reality folks! It mirrors the familiar dial and has a handy USB port along the side. If iPod isn’t already working on this one, they should!

“What in the wurl...?” as my mother would exclaim had she seen this idiosyncratic time piece. Heck, that’s what I said when I first laid eyes on it. No wrist band, no magnet… nothing. This strapless device is held on via skin piercing.
But, woest to the man (or woman) who gets it snagged while passing a doorway, or while running to catch the bus or train. Ouch!
Somebody’s been dipping in the Blue Monster’s porridge. Seiko’s Blue Monster a/k/a the Seiko SKZ213K1, has a duplicate mold out there on the market. Apparently, there’s a market for this limited edition.
There are some differences in the two, however. The actual Monster’s blue face contrast nicely with the light green lume and the red and blue bezel makes an appealing. Its twin similarly has a blue face, but it surrounded by a dull steel bezel that doesn’t lend much personality. Yet, like the Monster, it’s a handsome watch.

Nike has decided to go out on its own (apart from iPod) and create a watch with, well… time in mind. This sleek, dark mystery was created using the same wireless technology to display the dat on one’s wrist rather than on one’s DAP.
Though we’re not sure if this is a finalized idea, but we’re sure that Nike won’t be breaking complete ties with iPod. The name and reputation speaks for itself.
