IMO between the JOYSTICK-IT and the iCade GKNT is about to be a very real company but, at this point, Geeknet should be led by Carolie Offutt. She should be CEO, perform a $100 million IPO amidst the buzz of the iCade launch, bring in a COO from Amazon.com...and get rid of all the current hanger-ons...

"...The iCADE was first conceptualized by Thinkgeek and unveiled on April Fool's day last year and ION partnered with the retailer to develop and bring the product to market. The iCADE provides an analog interface for gameplay through a joystick and buttons, connecting to the iPad via Bluetooth.

iCADE has also partnered with game developer Atari to offer several games, including Asteroids, along with the iCADE. ION has announced that the iCADE will be available in the spring and will be priced at $99..."
