Turn Your iPad Nano Into A Classy Pocket Watch With iPocketWatch

Wearing your iPod Nano as a watch just got boring. With the iPocketWatch you can class up your geekyness like the olden days. The iPocketWatch was designed by an Australian industrial designer and is machined from aluminum and designed with to be slim enough to effortlessly slip in and out of that small jeans pocket of yours. I always thought that small pocket was meant to keep small change, but as it turns out, it's actually a specially designed watch pocket first introduced by Levi Strauss (Levi's) and that's a fact.

The iPocketWatch comes with an 11-inch (30cm) long metal chain with a belt hook and is available in two different variants, one a square facia and the other a round facia. Both designed to fit over the many watch faces of the iPod Nano and retain full access to all of the iPod Nano's ports and buttons including the back clip. The iPocketWatch is currently a crowdfunding project like Kickstarter so you'll be able to pre-order yourself one of these for $39 and hope it'll reach its funding goal so you can keep time the old school way.

Thanks for the tip, Edwin!

First Steps Taken to Hacking iPod Nano

When Steve Jobs announced the brand new iPod nano in September with an interface that looked like iOS, everyone was thinking how long or how easy it would be to hack and put custom apps onto the new nano. And the first steps have been taken towards making this a reality as on a flight home, James Whelton booted up an iPod nano with a modified SpringBoard plist file that "removed" an app from the screens and replaced it with a blank space. Now you might be thinking, is that it. Well yes it is, but don't get to sad, as this could be the first step on the long road that leads to even more hacking, jailbreaking and installing custom apps that we dreamed of when steve announced it in september. See the demo video below.
