I’ll try not to cry

A while back there was an awesome deal on an in-car iPod player that I didn’t post here; I bought one for my husband, and I didn’t want him to get wind of it, so I deprived y’all of the deal. I’m sorry.

Except that I’m not, because—while the deal I got was amazing, I thought—now the price has dipped unbelievable low. As in, much less than what I paid. As in, I’m trying not to be bitter.

So here it is: Check out the highly-rated Harman Kardon Drive + Play, now just $18.99 shipped from Buy.com. That price is insane. I’m not going to tell you how much I paid, before, but it rhymes with… bleventy. Sigh.

My husband uses his every day on the way to work, and in particular for design geeks who like the click wheel on the iPod, this is a nifty device because the “command center” is basically a click wheel on a joystick.

And at this price, they’re practically giving them away.


  1. Yahoooo! My van’s CD player broke about 3 months ago and I’ve been suffering the radio drivel and commercials since then. I LOVE YOU, Mir!!!!

  2. Thanks Mir! My husband was all over this one…and also the mario games from yesterday. He’s starting to become a fan.

  3. I so wish I had an Ipod, Ipod instead of the Phillips whatever it is that I call an Ipod, LOL!

  4. awesome deal! btw, the reason the price went down so much is b/c i’m pretty sure a new version of it is coming out, apparently one that can show album art. such is the world of electronics. still an amazing deal tho.

  5. yup. the new version is out in a few weeks and is a whopping $400. just for color and album art. no thanks. i’m in college. i’m poor.

  6. but it rhymes with… bleventy

    Sorry, dear, but that cracked my ass up!!

    I don’t own an ipod so I am not sure what this is. Should I buy it anyway since it is so cheap?
    Yeah, I shop like that.


  7. I imagine it’s on such deep discount because it doesn’t work with the 3G iPhones. Alas.

  8. My husband uses his Ipod in his car all the time. I think he’s going to love this! Sorry you paid so much more, but I really appreciate the awesome deal on this! Thanks!

  9. My husband would love this except that the radio in his car doesn’t like to allow the Ipod to use the FM transmitter. Guess it’s too old – but he can put it through the tape deck, so at least he can use it to some degree. This is a great price though.

  10. Pouring lovely comments over you and that ole number generator never works.. so let me be very original and say:


  11. Aw, hell, it was such a good deal, I bought it with the hopes that it works in his car since it would be a better interface than what he has now. If it doesn’t work, there’s always my car… 🙂

  12. Thanks Mir,
    I just bought this for my husband. I don’t know if it will work in his car…my heart is in the right place though, and if not there is always my car.

  13. Did you husband have this installed, or was he able ot do it himself? It’s seems to be very difficult?

  14. SOLD!! thanks so much for the tip. I bought one for my husband’s car. since we switch off cars depending on which one is last in (single car driveway) i’ll be using this too.

  15. Good lord, I just bought 2. Someone is getting this for Christmas, it is just a matter of deciding who!

  16. Thank you. I love you.

  17. Intrigued but my iTrip is working ok so I can’t justify it.

  18. Just bought two…one for me and one for someone else…not sure who. Yay me…and Yay Mir!

  19. I’m getting a car in the next few weeks and that would make my drives to visit my boyfriend easier (he is 3+ hours away).

    But I just spent a lot of money on stuff that is more important….


  20. no longer available. sigh.

  21. I purchased one on Buy.com yesterday, but found the same item for $22.20 over at Amazon. So, if anyone is looking for one, you can still get it for a pretty good deal.
