The iLoad sat on my desk for a good week before I decided to take it out of its box. It wasn't that it didn't look sleek, (while it's a little heavy it does match the regular iPod and my MacBook) but more that as a 21st century woman, I find the idea of it a bit confusing. When I eventually tried it out, I did realize the device's use, but still don't think I'm its target customer.
The iLoad device takes your CDs (apparently it will work with DVDs soon too), as well as any music, album and video data, and loads them directly to your iPod without using a computer or requiring an Internet connection. As someone who has a computer and constant internet access to download from iTunes, this seems silly, but for those people who avoid/don't have computers but do have an iPod (i.e my mother), it could be real handy.
