Riptopia’s latest contribution to the iPod universe is the ShugaNano, an iPod Nano preloaded with your 50 favorite CD’s and tricked out with crystal-encrusted headphones (called, of course, ShugaBuds). The 4GB devices are available from November 1 to January 15 and come in blue, pink or green. After ordering at www.riptopia.com, you’re sent a 50 CD spindle and postage-paid insured shipping materials. Send in your 50 CDs and you get them back in 48 hours or less with a fully loaded ShugaNano and a personalized DVD digital music library. If this is a gift, you can have the spindle sent to your giftee with a gift card explaining what to do. Or you can just steal their 50 favorite CD’s and give them back when the ShugaNano is ready, but that’s probably not in the spirit of the holidays.
