    This weekend, Apple is introducing a new look and design to their App Store individual app pages. Closely mirroring the iTunes 9 design, the new look adds greater visual consistency to the overall iTunes/app store user experience. But the motivation for the revision is believed to be the growing number of developers displeased with the previous look of the store's individual app pages.

    It certainly is an unorthodox place for an iPod dock. But thanks to our friends at Electrolux, doing housework just became a whole lot more interesting.

    Electrolux, a popular maker of household appliances, has unveiled the "Silence Amplified," a vacuum cleaner that sports a built-in iPod dock that will "revolutionize your cleaning routine." According to the UK's Telegraph:

    Because a belt clip or arm band was just too inconvenient, right?

    Electrolux, which has only presented the product line in theory for now, has even created a website that enables interested parties to assemble the "perfect playlist for vacuuming the house." Hoping to generate buzz for the appliance, Electrolux says it could be convinced to actually go forward with mass-producing the product if a million pre-orders are placed.
