Here’s a device for recording both audio and video right onto your iPod. You can record from a DVD or even a VCR, any source of streaming video, really. You can also record onto PSP or any sort of USB storage device. And you can play back what you’ve recorded on any device that supports MP3s, MP4s, H.264s, and AACs. The name, iRecord, is iPod-friendly, and it’s from Streaming Networks.
This sort of device is very user-friendly because it is plug-and-play and because it works with multiple players and formats. Check it out for US$200.
