Really, THIS my friends is being inventive. @briansolis tweeted this link out from Random Cool Stuff on how to use a barf bag to hold your iphone/ipod.  As a fan of MAKE, I LOVE stuff like this. I only included the one image, but you can see more on the website.  @AdamSigner brought up a point about it falling if you hit turbulence.

As most of you know, lately I have been writing about GPS logging apps for the iPhone for biking, running, sailing, or whatever. But what if we do not have the iPhone or we have the ipod touch? Are we doomed to look on in envy as you iPhone users get to wallow in GPS self satisfaction? Well, for now, yes, but not much longer!

Sweettt.  Can’t wait for this. I would have to say my main complaint for playing music on the iPhone is having to type in a password just to advance a song.  Well, looks like we have an app on the way to take care of that issue. I also do not care for itunes, freedom!!
