USB lamp and iPod dock brought to you by the letter C

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on October 9th, 2008

USB lamp and iPod dock brought to you by the letter CThe makers of this lamp/iPod dock obviously believe in simplicity as well as educating people Sesame Street style on the letter C. It is a space saver. We’ve seen our share of iPod docks and USB lamps, but not together in the same device, that I’m aware of.

The Conof USB lamp has a bright light and can swivel 270 degrees, making it extra useful. Not many details, but it appears to have dual USB ports, so you can dock your iPod and another item of your choice. The lamp is powered via the USB port on your computer. Once you tire of this device, maybe they’ll throw some “D” letter action your way with another like it.

Onkyo MHP-UW2 iPod wireless headphones

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on October 9th, 2008

Onkyo MHP-UW2 iPod wireless headphonesHow great was the advent of wireless? Wires suck. Wires trip people, electrocute,strangle unsuspecting users and just generally get in the way. Headphones wires are no exception. The Onkyo MHP-UW2 Bluetooth headphones come with an emitter that attaches to your iPod and broadcasts music for up to 8 hours on a full battery.

Recharging takes 3 hours via conventional AC adaptor or USB. The headphones look pretty cool, but the problem here is the emitter. It’s huge and fugly and kind of offensive, like a ball and chain. Not really wireless. You didn’t buy a small iPod just to make it huge later, now did ya?. In fact, it kinda looks like a pogo stick for your iPod. The price is $200.

Memorex miniMOVE Boombox, purse thing for iPodAt first glance you might think that Memorex has updated those old portable 8-Track players, you know the one’s with the handles from back in the day… Okay, they kinda have. The 8-Track cassette tape is now an iPod, but otherwise it’s pretty much the same deal. The Memorex miniMOVE Boombox for iPod resembles a purse and is obviously aimed at the ladies as a fashion accessory.

The portable boombox can go anywhere thanks to it’s innovative and retro handle technology. It’s powered by AA batteries or AC/DC. It’s even got a built in FM radio, backlit LCD display, and wireless remote. Comes in Pink, Black, Teal, or Silver and retails for $49.99. This is just the sort of odd and stupid thing that some Sex and the City character would have with her on-screen, thereby making it a hit and making every other Lemming follow suit. Am I wrong? What do you think girls? Would you buy this?

iBikeConsole puts music on your bikeHere’s an updated version of that iPhone Bike Mount we showed you in April that has probably sent some people to the hospital by now. The iBikeConsole device is mounted on your bike in pretty much the same way and will let you control your 1st, 2nd or 3rd generation iPod Nano without moving your hands away from the grips, which is a bonus because that feature will surely keep you alive longer.

You can also check your speed, trip distance, and more if you’re a numbers geek. Has a nice looking weather housing too. It’s about time they came up with something that makes it all the more desirable to knock you off your bike and steal it, because that old bell on your handlebars just wasn’t hip enough. The iBikeConsole is available for $76. Getting your bike and your iPod stolen at the same time…Priceless.

Made for iPod refrigerator

Made for iPod refrigeratorMaking its appearance at IFA 2008 in Berlin, the Made for iPod refrigerator is the first of it’s kind. Gorenje might have a winner on it’s hands with this here fancy fridge. Sure, we’ve seen refrigerators with a bunch of multimedia features that allow you to listen to music, watch TV, even surf net, but this is Apple certified. It features a built-in iPod docking station and speakers, so as you might expect, you can play music and video and connect to the internet via a Wi-Fi network.

Apparently by integrating the iPod with iGorenj app, you can control all kinds of Gorenje appliances like washing machines and the oven for instance. The app is not built for iPhone/iPod touch, it’s served from a home server that controls your appliances directly. That way you can use the iPod touch, but also any other web device in your home that uses a Wi-Fi network. Looks like we may have an iKitchen sooner then some of us thought.

Right now, it’s still just a concept, but hopefully it will be a reality soon and herald a new age of stone iPod docks.

Speakal’s iPig adds a touch of digital bacon to your iPod
Do digital pigs dream of electric bacon when they have an iPod attached? I have no idea. It could be argued that alot of the drivel that fills up iPods is total garbage and if that’s the case, why not serve it up to a pig?

Speakal is offering the iPod docking iPig, a speaker system with five drivers, one of which is a 4-inch subwoofer, adjustable bass controls, 360-degree sound distribution and a desire to shout oink. It also has a 3.5-millimeter auxiliary jack and comes with a bundled remote. They even act like pigs in price at $139.99 and want to snort and suck up your money, then roll around in it.
