Ascending Butterfly Editor's Pick Sponsored By

I am a total tech nerd and gadget geek, and with a love of gadgets comes a need for a plethora of accessories. I love it when an accessory for my gadget does double or even triple duty!

One of my favorite among my gadgets is my iPod Touch. It holds thousands of music files, videos, apps, books & pictures. Like some with their American Express, I never leave home without it!

As many of you know I'm a typical New York City girl who never learned to drive. Parking and traffic are pure nightmares here and it just never seemed necessary with such a wide variety of public transportation options, my favorite being the express bus that takes me into the city. I love to sit back, put on my music or a video podcast and leave the driving to the bus driver! Makes for a nice relaxing start to the day!

While I love traveling with my iPod, I'm always careful to make sure it's protected, let's face it, my handbag is somewhat similar to a bottomless pit, and stuff gets knocked around in there a lot while in transit. But the one thing in there I don't want to jeopardize is my iPod.

It already expresses my individuality with a custom skin that I just love, but that skin is purely fashion, it doesn't keep it protected from impact in any way. That's where the very smart folks at idox come in. They created a pure genius product for your iPod and iPhones, it's a stand/holder and a protector case all rolled into one. It's an editors pick for good reason!

I've had a chance to road test it and I love it, my iPod fits perfectly, does not come out or slide, it pulls out only when I am ready to take it out. I can watch a movie now without having to hold the iPod in my hand the whole way anymore (insert singing choir here) and it also completely protects my iPod from the perils of my handbag, particularly when the whole bag gets bumped about when I'm traveling and passing through airport scanners.

I love the Idox360, it even makes it a snap to now use your iPod as an alarm clock on your night table, a great perk when you are traveling (and at home too!). If you are anything like me, you don't like setting those centuries old alarm clocks at hotels and have learned (the hard way) NOT to rely on a wake up call because they'll invariably not call or call late and make you miss your flight. With Idox360, just put your iPod in, and now use it on your nightstand as an alarm clock! (Just make sure it's fully charged though, or be sure to plug it in! You don't want to set it to go off and have it not go off either because it wasn't charged.)

Honestly I can't rave more about it, My iPod is now protected from scratches from having makeup cases bump up against it, or the pressure of having tons of stuff piled upon it. Keeping it in the idox case closed also helps me to be sure it doesn't accidentally go on when I don't want it to.

There is only thing I wish they would do to make it my dream accessory for my ipod, find a way to get portable speakers into the unit without adding considerable bulk. If it also had portable speakers, it would be SO perfect I probably would cry tears of joy when I took it out the box! (Just make sure they aren't those cheapo 'tinny' sounding speakers!)
