i-Station Rotate dock will rotate your iPod or iPhone

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on November 12th, 2008

i-Station Rotate dock will rotate your iPod or iPhoneThe i-Station Rotate from Logic3 is the latest offering in the i-Station line. It makes sure that your iPod or iPhone is always oriented in the right direction, which I’m sure will help you avoid some neck problems while watching videos. The i-Station Rotate has a built-in dock rotating mechanism that turns your device horizontal or vertical depending on your whims, when you still need it to be connected to the dock.

It’s pretty practical and compact, which is good for taking the i-Station Rotate with you on the road etc. It features a Video Out function, TDMA noise suppresion, 3.5mm Stereo line-in socket, a remote control and a carrying case. You can get the i-Station Rotate in January of next year for $129.99.

Jean-Michel Jarre’s retro iPod Speakers

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on October 22nd, 2008

Jean-Michel Jarre’s retro iPod SpeakersThere are a million eye-catching iPod accessories, but this one manages to stand out nicely. This odd looking iPod dock/speaker combo is from designer Jean-Michel Jarre and resembles something you would charge your lightsaber in that also doubles as a heater. It’s called the AeroSystem, retro in name and design.

It’s currently available only in France, and costs about $580, complete with an iPod-inspired remote. Seems to me that it’s more of a suicide station for when your iPod hears about the state of the economy or that Apple has released a new model. Stationed high atop it’s high-rise, it is free to make the decision to jump or not jump.

Sirius SUB-X2 Boombox image leakedImages of an upcoming Sirius Boombox, the SUB-X2, were leaked on Monday. It obviously resembles the SUB-X1 boombox, with a front-panel headphone jack, auxiliary input that will allow users to plug in their personal MP3 players and non universal docking Sirius radios. We can also expect some other refinements with the X2. There isn’t any info on features, but it should retail for about $100.

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.

E-ZCHARGE DockIf you are married or have a live in partner that isn’t into technology and gadgets and loathes cords, you probably know what a source of irritation cords can be. You know what happens, you go to plug your phone in, and the charger is gone, stuffed away in some drawer because it looked bad. You spend time hunting for it getting more irritated by the second.

The E-ZCHARGE Dock may be able to help you avoid cable clutter and hidden chargers. The device connects directly to any cell phone charger according to the maker and doesn’t block the outlets around it. Once attached the excess cable can be wrapped around the non-slip surface of the dock and provides a place to store the phone.

Sony’s ICF-CD3iP iPod/iPhone dock & clock radio

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on September 11th, 2008

Sony’s ICF-CD3iP iPod/iPhone dock & clock radioSony has created a somewhat original looking and refreshing third-generation iPod/iPhone clock radio dock, the ICF-CD3iP, according to an apparent leak by a Sony Insider. The dock has a unique circular design that holds a clock, AM/FM radio and a CD player, with simple controls in front for playback.

A side dock holds the Apple device. It can play MP3′s, CDs and CD-R/RW audio discs. The iPhone or iPod are integrated with the alarm clock and it comes with a remote so you don’t have to get out of bed to turn it off. Looks like it has nice big numbers as well, for those that need them. The ICF-CD3iP will reportedly be available in October. Price is estimated at $100.

Dock your iPod in a $600 Victrola

Posted in iPod by Conner Flynn on September 8th, 2008

Dock your iPod in a $600 VictrolaHere’s something retro and neat. Dock your new music thing into an old music thing. It’s the Phonofone II, Limited Edition in Black and it’s designed by Tristan Zimmerman with only 200 of the devices available for sale. It looks like yet another iPod speaker dock in the shape of a Victrola but this time it’s different, I swear. It uses no power except the power of your iPod Classic or iPod Touch to amplify music through the horn part of the Phonofone II at 55 decibels.

So it’s like actually blending the technologies of past and present. Ok, not really. The iPod Nano or shuffle won’t be powerful enough to amplify the Phonofone II unless you use an inline headphone amplifier. It’s like Thomas Edison and Steve Jobs collaborated, with Steve setting the price. The Phonofone II sells for $600.

Dock your iPod in Beethoven’s head

Dock your iPod in Beethoven’s headWhether you’re into the classics or just want it to look like you are, the Ode to Beethoven MP3 Player Speakers will bring a little Beethoven into your life. It is designed by UK artist Fiona Thomson, with the idea of combining classic artistic aesthetics with modern technology. More importantly, it lets you dock your mp3 player in a stone bust of Beethoven’s head, so you can look all classy while playing your AC/DC and Alice Cooper. 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.

Steve Jobs bobblehead iPhone dock: Steve is watching you

Steve Jobs bobblehead iPhone dock: Steve is watching you
Somewhat like god, it seems that Steve Jobs is always around in some form. Some guy wasn’t content with his iPhone dock, so this bobblehead sculptor created this interesting looking iPhone dock that features a super-detailed Steve Jobs, so detailed it’s as if he is giving a keynote speech.

Just watch him watching you, talk to him now and then while you are charging(He’ll nod. He’s really listening). He really looks like he has an important announcement to make about an upcoming product that he knows you’ll overpay for. You know he’s still looking a little thin too, especially next to the iPhone.

Skullcandy Pipe iPod/iPhone dock looks like a sawed off bone

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on August 6th, 2008

Skullcandy Pipe iPod/iPhone dock looks like a sawed off boneSkullcandy has an interesting and strange new, even somewhat biological looking iPod/iPhone dock called “Pipe”. It looks like a pipe. It also looks like a sawed off femur that’s been aged. Perfect for the coroner or surgeon that likes to have his music on hand and be reminded of his craft at the same time.

It features a clever little plus and minus button on front which I’m sure you can figure out, comes with a remote and the skull logo is on the side. Looks like it would make a good weapon too, which is a bonus. Or a baton for practicing relay races. All this can be yours for $90.
