Not only does British band ColdPlay release exclusive tracks to the iTMS more than any other band (as far as I can tell) and not only did the lead singer, Chris Martin
, and his wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, name their baby daughter "Apple,"
but as further signification of ColdPlay's fanatical obsession with all things Apple-related as well as their devotion to the sometimes-religion whose would-be Pope is a college drop-out
and trend-setting fan of the turtleneck
, they are now offering a X & Y-branded version of everyone's favorite solar-charging battery-pack for the iPod, the Solio, for sale on the band's UK site.
The Solio grabs the rays from Mr. Sun
, and uses them to charge a battery, which in turn helps charge your iPod. I wrote a review of the Solio for AppleMatters
once upon a time. This new Coldplay-sponsored version comes in a limited run of only 200 and will set you back 79.99 in British pounds.
Aside: I believe this is my most cross-referential post ever.
