Is this a sign of the iPod having made the big time, or (more likely) bicycles making it?
Apparently, Cannondale (according to techradar.com) is designing an iPod dock for a bike. The goal is similar to that of the Nike+ program (the special sensor that fit into a special shoe that would keep track of how much running/walking you were doing in your iPod) in that the goal is to give you information about your cycling habits (say, the same info that a bike computer gives you).

I'm sure it is likely to come with some way to download it and keep track in some program and probably will display the info on the screen of your iPod while you ride but...

Is this really necessary? Or is it just some coolish thing someone is cooking up in order to sell more bikes?
