The Unofficial Apple Weblog is reporting on the Hitch iPod2iPod USB Transfer Device available through ThinkGeek.
The Hitch, which is based off a Linux operating system, allows the user to hook two USB storage devices such as a pair of ipods and select which data to transfer between them via categorizations such as songs, albums and videos without the need of a computer.
Unfortunately, there is a downside. Music purchased through the iTunes Store and encoded with Apple’s FairPlay DRM will not be able to play after a sync, although unprotected files will play immediately and the two iPods need to be configured under Windows’ FAT32 drive format.
The Hitch iPod2iPod features a scroll wheel, USB 2.0 interface, backlit LCD screen and rechargable battery and retails for US$89.99.
If anyone’s gotten their hands on one of these and played with it, let us know what your experience was like.
