The company iLoad has been lambasted in the past for making products many people claim are, well, pretty crappy. What’s more, the owner, one Sanford Schupper, 56, is quite possibly a fraudster who allegedly swindled some family for as much as $872,000. For more on this hilarity, read this.
The point is, this guy made a little gadget called the iLoad, whose only point was to rip CDs directly to an iPod. And now, he’s released the iLoad-v which (you guessed it), loads videos directly to your video iPod. The $150 device
connects to your cable TV or catellite (sic) box and records your content onto an iPod and/or external USB drive or flash disk
Seeing as this is coming from a company owned by what seems to be a very strange individual, I can’t imagine why anyone wouldn’t just get an equally priced Neuros MPEG4 Recorder 2 instead.
