igrill.jpgNow you can “knock out the fat” and pump out some killer tracks at the same time. In the “now I HAVE seen it all” category we have the George Foreman iGrill. For USD$149.00 you get an indoor/outdoor electric grill with a built-in 10 watt amplifier and speakers. The site doesn’t provide many details, but it looks like it will support any MP3 player, so I assume it is using the 1/8″ mini jack to connect to the grill, and not the iPod’s 30-pin dock connector. From the images it looks like there is a holder near the base of the grill where you would set your iPod. I am guessing the speakers are also mounted near the base of the grill. Now, in checking Apple’s iPod tech specs the rated operating temperature is 32° to 95° F (0° to 35° C), so it’s a good thing the iPod is kept far away from the grill, but I imagine that doesn’t make for convenient operation. I would also worry about hot grease splattering and raining down on my precious Pod. Definitely not for most, but if you would like to hickory smoke some ribs and listen to the Maccast I’m not going to stop you.

    Totally weird.
    I’m still waiting for the iPod dockable Weed trimmer.
    And what about a iPod dockable flash light?

    It is truly amazing how mega advertising and distribution can allow total crap to be marketed. That product is MOST likely produced in a underpaid foreign country for about $10-15, and some day we will be sorry we bought them in this manner.

    Mean while I will continue to keep our products close at heart.

    I have to admit I do have a the original Mini Foreman Grill that we love to use on our boat (no gas allow on my boat)
