And so it begins. Well, not really begins — Monster is hardly the first manufacturer to announce it'll be making accessories for Micorsoft's Zune player. But Monster's official announcement today of its half-dozen or so Zune add-ons sure makes the whole thing seem real. Like, holy cow, the big debut is less than a month away! Among the Monster trinkets for the iPod rival: the CarPlay Wireless Plus (shown, $80), an FM transmitter for playing your Zune tunes over a car stereo; the TV Link ($30) a cable for connecting the Zune to a TV; the SlimCharger ($30), which lets you charge the player from any AC outlet… heeeeey, wait just a minute… you can't fool us, Monster — these are just repackaged iPod accessories! All you did was swap connectors and drop the "i" prefix. Well, I guess it's only fair that the Zune gets the same treatment. If you want to jump right in and start planning your Zune lifestyle, Monster says the accessories are available now, although its site doesn't list them just yet. Try to stay calm.
