    iPod Touch in the car?

    I have discovered a new use for my second gen iPod Touch. My new car audio system has a USB plug and I would like to use my iPod Touch in the car. There is a covered compartment in the center console that would be a good place to put the iPod so it is out of sight. However, it's summer and it...

    Best iPad Case is the Smart one
