So Griffin, maker of all things iPod, busted out their Smartdeck cassette adaptor for the iPod today. I was about 3 seconds away from screaming at how dumb it was till I actually read the words instead of
looking at the pretty pictures. The Smartdeck allows for total control of the iPod through the cassette deck. So if you pause the tape, the iPod pauses. Fast forward, Rewind, you get the idea. So it looks like this might be one of the best worst products of the year.
