This iPod enhancement utility adds a new interface to virtually any iPod, downloads your picks of 19 different categories of information, and syncs it to the player whenever you connect it to your PC. In addition to your entire Outlook (2002 or better) portfolio--e-mail, calendar, notes, to-do lists--iGadget also pulls down RSS news feeds, weather forecasts, horoscopes, and even a list of the gas stations with the lowest prices in your Zip code.

Cooler still is its ability to pull your music back off the player and back it up to your PC or Mac. If you've ever had a hard drive crash and lost your music archive, you know how important this feature is. If you spend an inordinate amount of time staring at the screen of your iPod, iGadget will give you a lot more to look at.
