MacMice Workspace Products Co.
is offering a new anodized aluminum desk stand for Apple iPods: the US$39.99 GPerch, which is described, tongue-in-cheek, as “the world’s fastest iPod stand.”
Due July 15, it’s designed to complement the appearance of Apple’s upcoming Power Mac G5 systems. The GPerch’s outer frame is laser cut to the same “handle” profile as the G5. The perforated aluminum cradle that holds the ipod is punch perforated to match the front grille of the new Apple tower. What’s more, the GPerch uses the same 5052 grade aluminum sheet, and the same microplasmic anodized surface finish as the G5 case and the case of the new iSight Web cam.
The GPerch measures three inches wide, 5.25 inches tall, and 5.5 inches deep. It accommodates all iPods, all iPod accessories, and all iPod cases.
