You know those commercials that show an old lady in an endless mall parking lot who's life could be made so much simpler if only she had one of those keychain gadgets that let you leave yourself voice memos about where you parked the car? They're right. You could find a million uses for a voice memo recorder, if only you really wanted to carry one around. Instead, pick up this tiny push-pin-sized microphone and use your iPod...
Thumb Tacks are compact little microphones that plug into the headphone jack of any 4th Gen iPod Nano or iPod Touch to turn them into a voice recorder.
It's a great idea for students, who probably already carry an iPod to tune out down the sidewalks inbetween classes. Just pull out your shiny white earbuds and pop in a shiny white Thumb Tacks microphone to catch that important lecture to study later.
The Web site also says that it works with third party applictions, so who knows what else the genius app-making brains could figure out what to do with this.
Get one in white, red or black from SwitchEasy for $12.99.
