    I noticed way back when that the iPod (4th gen) was essentially the same size as a cassette tape and made a case out of a cassette player where the headphones came out of it. Looked like I was listening to a cassette player.

    Should've gone into production of them I suppose. Must find it to take a picture.

    yeah, dude, show us a picture. That sounds pretty cool.

    This is also a cool idea, but I don't understand why they are only making 45. $45 also seems a leetle steep.

    At first, I thought you could pop it into your car's tape player and off you go, but no, this is just a way to make your nano slightly larger and more plasticy.

    Looks like they started by using old "45's" (records), then decided to make the cost $45.
