UK distributor Disruptive Technology Channels has added a new item to its PodGear range, its SyncBuddy Firewire.

The SyncBuddy Firewire is a retractable Firewire Sync and charge cable for iPods with Dock connector. It's release comes scant days after Apple updated its iPod range, shipping all but the 20GB iPod with no FireWire cable, meaning Mac users who lack USB 2.0 will need to invest in a cable such as this one.

Disruptive Technology managing director Tom Dudderidge: “There is a clear issue here for many new iPod users. Without the SyncBuddy Firewire, iPod users who don’t have a USB 2.0 Port on their PC would not be able to Sync and Charge their iPod. We have clearly solved a potential Sync and Charge problem.”

The new device costs £14 from UK distributor, Everything iPod.
