Belkin's TuneTalk Stereo

There are two tiny omnidirection mics on that sweet little thing — Belkin's TuneTalk Stereo ($69.99) — displayed here by Jackie Romulo. You can record stuff directly onto your iPod and play it back later. So, if you're a student at a sleepy lecture or a hack reporter like me, you have an instant cheat sheet.

Which means you wouldn't have to call Belkin's PR Manager, Melody Chalaban, while you're up in Jon Iverson's room posting entries, to get the model name and price that you forgot to write down.

Good stuff, I say.
