The Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (yes, it really exists) elected to name a mountain range in Victoria Land the Asgard Range—one of the smaller peaks is called Idunn.

Idun, a Swedish magazine devoted to literature and gender equality, featured a picture of Idunn with her apples on its masthead. What would Idunn's fav magazine be?

There's an app for that! Iðunn Software creates beer- and wine-rating apps for the iPhone. Yeah, she's up with the times.

Finnish (i.e., from Finland) ambient/noise musical group Ambient Light released a 2008 Album called Idun. Take a listen—and then tell us what ambient/noise music is like.
