CFDA's Titanic iPod: It's Unsyncable!

The fashion-industry elite walking out of the Swarovski-sponsored pre–CFDA awards dinner at Top of the Rock last night found a particularly exciting treat in their gift bags: a nifty Swarovski- crystal-encrusted iPod Shuffle. There's just one problem. The crystals covering the case make the Shuffle too big to fit in its dock, which means it won't sync with a computer. Unless, that is, the fashionistas go out and buy Shuffle adaptors, we're told. Note to Swarovski: Next time, get a tech team in to consult on crystal size. —Jada Yuan

Update: We hear that Swarovski is sending out adaptors for the crystal-encrusted Shuffle to everyone at the dinner. All's well that ends well!
