Belkin touts weather-proof iPod remote

Rain won't stop play

Security for virtualized datacentres

Can't be without your iPod even when you're halfway up a mountain and facing blizzard conditions? Then accessory maker Belkin has a weather-resillient wireless remote control just for you.

Dubbed the SportCommand, the limb-lashable controller is covered in fabric to protect its electronics from the elements and to allow it to flex while you move. The large volume, play/pause and track-skip controls sit next to the battery pack and transmitter, which talks to a dongle clipped onto your music player. The range is 15m, Belkin claimed.
