Thorben Neu and Oliver Duncan-Seil, Design Directors for Belkin International, Inc.:

* TuneStudio and SportCommand were born out of our own passions, the passion for snowboarding and being able to listen to the iPod while doing so, and the passion for music and being able to record it on the iPod.
* We are honored and appreciative of iF’s recognition for these two products. The iF design awards are among the world’s most coveted, and we are proud to have been selected this year.
