Default Griffin Technology Launching 10 Accessories for the Zune

All the text below was slowly (painfully) assembled from eCost product listings. Sadly, no pictures, but I'm waiting on a response from Griffin to see if they'll provide me with some pics. I'm a big fan of Griffin Technology products, because they're really high quality - I use two of their <a href="http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/icurve/" target="_blank">iCurves </a>to keep my two laptops suspended, and they work really well.<br /><br /><em><strong><a href="http://www.ecost.com/ecost/ecsplash/shop/detail~dpno~4808133.asp" target="_blank">PowerJolt Auto Charger for Zune</a> ($20.99 USD)</strong>: The PowerJolt charges your Zune whether it&rsquo;s playing music or in standby mode, ensuring that you&rsquo;ll arrive at your destination with a fully charged Zune. <br /><br />Features:<br /></em><ul> <li><em>Works with any standard 12V power port</em></li> <li><em>accessory port LED changes color to indicate when player has completed charging</em></li> <li><em>Includes high quality USB to Zune Connector cable Easily replaceable fuse protects your player while charging <br /> </em> </li></ul><em><strong><a href="http://www.ecost.com/ecost/ecsplash/shop/detail~dpno~4808134.asp" target="_blank">PowerBlock for Zune</a> - USB Wall Charger ($26.25 USD)</strong>: Power and charge from a wall outlet with the PowerBlock.

If the Zune is a success in the marketplace, I believe we'll see more <a href="http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/ikaraoke/" target="_blank">creative accessories</a> coming.
