    Alright, I know there are a few threads on this topic, regarding the Target $9.99 iPhone Microphone adapter made by Philips. Aparently these are just available in some select Target stores, so I would check the website for availability.

    Here's my thing, I just got off the phone with the guy in electronics at a Store in Portland. After calling the first time and being told they didnt carry such a thing, I called back with the DPCI#, and they looked it up and lo and behold they have 4. Only this is where im confused, the guy tried telling me that it isnt really a microphone at all, it just extends your headphones. And same price, $9.99. He said that for some reason their system has it as a "Microphone"...

    So am I right to assume I was just talking to someone who didnt know what they were talking about...?

    The person didn't know what they were talking about.
    It DOES extend your headphones, but there is also a microphone built into it.

    I figured about as much when like the 2nd thing that came out of his mouth was "You're gonna have to go to an Apple store to get something like that..."
    This was even with their DCPI stock number.

    Thanks much for the affirmation that it wasn't just me.

    Nokia mic for Voip

    Hi,
    I have a mic from Nokia (like the Philips iPhone Microphone Adapter).
    Well, I use the app Fring. And I do some calls (using voipstunt). But the mic doesn't work correctly in the ipod.
    For example, when I call to a phone with the ipod, I can talk from the phone and I listen all things that i say in the ipod. But when I talk from the ipod with the mic, in the phone I don't listen anything (but when i'm talking, I listen to me 5 seconds later in the ipod (so the mic is working, but in the phone there's no voice).

    The nokia mic has got a button, and I prove to push when I talk, don't push, etc. but there's no way.

    Any suggestions?

    I bought this product because I wanted to use Shazam

    i was able to find it at one of my local Target stores, at the price of 9.99 as promised.
    if you really want it id get it quick because it is on sale and there were only two left.

    besides shazam, what other cool apps can i use this mic for on the ipod touch 2nd gen?

    I think I might order this online. This looks neat.

    sh*t, it's in-store only. Good thing a store 5 miles away has one.
