    Does anyone have any experience with this iPod pillow from thinkgeek? I plan to get my sister this as a gift.
    Has anyone seen something similar in Canada? The shipping from US to Canada is ridiculously expensive, $43 :(


    Please post your comments! thank you

    I haven't used that specific one, but I've tried (and received as a gift) other similar products, and they mostly work as a novelty. The sound is generally terrible and they're not very reliable. I wouldn't buy it without trying, especially not at that price.

    The pillow idea is interesting because I hate trying to rest on a pillow with earbuds/earphones on. Sound quality would be the issue, though.

    I played with one like this at one time (maybe the exact model?). I do not recommend it. Just get some nice powered speakers, like the ones you hook up to PC's. Or even just some cheap ones, this pillow sucks, and you can't really control your ipod with it, just the volume or the crappy radio.

    I have one I got from Linens N Things as a gift. It was $10. It works well and the sound is a non-issue really because it is in fact something I just fall asleep to.

    Point taken, but I don't think it would be worth $43. Am I right?
