Dear Vivianne Tam and HP: This is how you market a tech item to women. It's not pink, it's not covered with flowers, and it doesn't sacrifice functionality for cuteness: It's just a sleek, hands-free iPod bracelet for those times when you don't even have a pocket big enough to fit a Shuffle. Right now it's only a sweet, sweet fantasy on the part of designer Gopinath Prasana, but we're holding out hope that Apple will produce it (with the matching wireless earphones, of course). And if it seems a bit kinky to literally manacle yourself to your Apple devotion, well, S&M is in right now.
