As the iPod continues its popularity surge, more and more companies are jumping onto the accessory bandwagon. At Macworld, JBL showed off its “JBL On Time,” a $300 gadget that serves as iPod charging base, speaker and dual alarm clock.
Start-ups continue to eye the iPod accessory market, including Atlanta-based Case-ari, which showed off a line of leather cases at this year’s show.
Once-small accessory makers have a big presence at this year’s Macworld Expo. XtremeMac, for example, has a huge, 1,600-square-foot spot right near the entrance to the show floor. It is a stone’s throw from the well trafficked Apple booth.
