One name-tag to rule them all...

So, after giving away two iPod nanos over Christmas we decided we'd do a quick post about the wonderful iPod nano name-tags that were seen (and admired) being worn by us at the recent Appy Awards.

Check out the video below for a demonstration of the name-tag in action.



So, by now you're wondering, 'how can I have a name-tag as cool as that!?'. Well, it's pretty simple, so here's a step by step how-to:

1. Get some high-res images of your company logo, name, details and whatever else you'd like to display
2. Throw them into their own Event/Album in iPhoto
3. Sync that Event/Album to your iPod nano
4. Go to Settings on the nano
5. Set your brightness good and bright for maximum visibilty
6. In Photos Settings, set Repeat to "On", Transition to "Origami", and time per slide to about 5 seconds (or whatever setting work best for you)
7. Go to "Photos" and press play to start a slideshow of the Event/Album containing the images
8. Clip to your shirt/jacket pocket
9. Be the person in the room with the coolest name-tag ever!

So it's that simple to be that cool. But be warned, battery life doesn't last for very long so make sure to use at the most opportune time for maximum impact.
