iPod + Nike KitTune your run! Everybody like to enjoying in music while exercise. Apple in cooperation with Nike has announced the Nike+iPod Sports Kit. Some people think this could get the geek out of the bedroom, but i don’t agree. I think this product is for people who like sport and music, not for geeks.

The system uses a sensor which fits into the insole to communicate with receiver witch is inserted into iPod’s nano dock connector. Then sensor, tracks data like time, distance, pace and calories and transmit it to iPod witch display it on the screen.
