There are – we freely admit – plenty of cheaper ways to rip the music off your iPod or iPhone and move it to a computer. But they're fraught with danger, repeated trips to online forums and downloading unverified third-party software.
For the rest of us, there's the Clickfree Transformer, which needs no setting up or fiddling about. You plug it in, it sucks the tunes out, and you're done. It'll even let you use spare space on your 'pod to store other files.
