Gear 4's video buddy
New from Gear4 is the
‘VideoBuddy’, a clever dongle for watching videos filmed on the new iPod nano on the big screen. Simply connect the dongle to your iPod nano dock and then link it up to the TV with the included RCA/phono cable for instant results.
Incorporating a new authentication chip from Apple that allows video (both recorded and downloaded), photos and movies to be played directly from the more recent iPod models. Older video connectivity solutions are not compatible with the newer iPod models for this reason.

Radiopaq Sound Jacket to dress up your old MP3s
The “MP3s are a bit rubbish” spiel is almost getting as tired as the “megapixels do not a camera make” lecture but all the same it’s nice to see a gadget that’s doing its best to iron out the kinks in your crushed up music tracks. That’s the job of the Radiopaq Sound Jacket which is a rather swish, brushed metal looking add-on for the 4th gen iPod Nano.
It works as a dynamic graphics equalizer, reacting automatically to the music played from the mini-pod in order to bolster and enrich the sound in all the right places and with any luck should make them sound good. A lot of players – like the Philips GoGears – have these kind of features built-in, so you’d hope Radiopaq has got something really special going on here or I’m likely to pan the hell out of when I get to try one out for review.
There’s all sorts of graphs explaining how you get more frequencies through it and that it improves the quality of sound by 60% but it rather smells like nonsense to me. Not saying it doesn’t work, just that quantifying an audio sensory experience by numbers is utter tosh.
The jacket powers off the pod which is both good and bad. No annoying batteries or charge time but your Nano is going to go flat quicker; 12 hours listening time is what they say.
It’s yours for £69.99 as soon as they get it on the Amazon shelves and, with any luck, it’ll actually be worth it.
