First wooden iPod dock, then wooden iPod case, Then wood design on the plastic of the iPod, then finally, an iPod with wood where the plastic and metal should be.

You know, wood has (almost) all the bad properties of PVC-it's toxic when burned, the ash is caustic, it can cause serious allergic reactions or death, it has a lower burning point, it supports molds and fungi growth...The only things wood has going for it is that it's cheap and biodegradable-but you can't make it into long-lasting, flexible pipe or leather substitute without adding chemicals that are just as dangerous as those in PVC.
