iHome shows some Zune love

Posted in Zune by Conner Flynn on June 5th, 2008

iHome shows some Zune love
After announcing their iPod computer speakers, iHome wants you to know they have Zune love too. iHome’s ZN9 is being called “the world’s first clock radio for the Zune”.

The Zune is no iPod, so the device might be looked at as a bit of a gamble for the company, but iHome should do just fine since they already have plenty of products that cater to the iPod and because no one has bothered to make an alarm clock radio for the Zune until now. It sports a distinctive X-Box shape, which should please X-fans. The price is $99 in July.

iPod Lamps combine music, with a lamp…

iPod Lamps combine music, with a lamp…
Look at those silly iPod lamps all gathered together and having a great old time. All colorful and retro looking. They think they’re pretty special. I don’t have the heart to tell them that they offer nothing new. I mean, that would just be cruel. But, the thing is, they aren’t all that special. Sure, they’re retro looking, but get this. I’ve been listening to music with a lamp on at the same time for practically my whole life.

Don’t get me wrong, I like the colors, but I like you, already own a lamp. On the other hand, if lighting is something new for you and you want an iPod dock to go along with your foray into electricity, it retails for $150 and comes in white, pink, black and brown colors.

Pump up the volume during your next pool party, with this floating system. The waterproof Radioraft will have your tunes pumping and jumping a full 360 degrees with five speakers and a built-in ipod dock.

So, yeah, they basically took a bouy and put in some cup-holders and speakers. Oh, and an iPod dock. All for the outrageous price of $2000. Your pool party guests had better be paying at the door.

Goodman’s iPod boombox with 7-inch LCD display

Goodman’s iPod boombox with 7-inch LCD display
One thing is for sure, this is not your father’s boombox. It’s not a hulking chrome monstrosity with tons of buttons and levers, with a speaker on each side. If you’ve been waiting to buy an iPod sound system with some extravagance, you will likely love Goodmans’ latest.

Aside from the usual pair of speakers, it boasts a 3-in-1 multicard reader, LED accents, iPod dock and a bundled remote. The unit also includes an integrated 7-inch LCD display for showing off stored clips, photos, and the like. No word on exact resolution, so it’s probably not that great. Still, might be worth looking into for $178.

iTam iPhone dock puts your iPhone on a pedestal

iTam iPhone dock
iTam, Tam I am…I like my iTam with ham…I do not like my iTam with Sam. Enough nonsense. This iPhone dock looks like it’s just begging for someone to climb on and drop a deuce inside. Of course as we all know, looks can be deceiving. Branex Design’s Eric Berthes shaped it like a tam tam, which is a type of gong from Asia. It’s shape gives it plenty of room for sound. Which is why it’s a shame that there are just 25 watts driving each of its two channels.

For $570, you can get it in black or white, which means that rich guys can play chess with these. Me, I’m not convinced. I mean it’s all well and good, but it seems to me that this design would be out of place outside of the bathroom. I’m torn. Just looking at it, I want to at least wash my hands in the thing.

Sony launches a PSP Cradle with remote

Posted in PSP by Darrin Olson on March 4th, 2008

Sony PSP Cradle holds the PSP upright and comes with a wireless remote controlSony continues to come out with some pretty cool stuff for the PSP, and it looks like this PSP Cradle is a must for anyone that uses their Playstation Portable to watch movies. It would be especially handy for those in Japan that can get the 1seg TV signals, which is probably why this is unfortunately launching in Japan only, for now.

The cradle docks the PSP and holds it upright so you don’t have to hold it or balance it against something to watch videos, and comes with an IR remote control so you can set back and control the playback without having to get up and press the little buttons on the PSP. The PSP Cradle will also charge the handheld device when plugged in and docked, and optionally comes with AV cables to hook up a bigger scren.

Kenwood AS-IP300 iPod dock

Kenwood AS-IP300
Kenwood’s AS-IP300 iPod dock looks like it just came from Area 51, which is cool. Unfortunately, it also looks like it could be mounted on the wall and used as a clothes hanger. You can get a black version if you really want it to look like the Stealth bomber.

No word yet on when these will be in the states. The price is about $140. Dimensions are: 380x157x221mm at 1 kg (1.2) for this iPod dock and it comes equipped with a couple 1.9W speakers. I’m a little unsure about this one. On one hand, it’s cool, on the other it looks like it might have been put here to brainwash me and then fly up in the sky to meet it’s cohorts. Is that odd?

iLive iT188B iPod speaker bar dockiLive has a new iPod speaker bar on deck for this spring with an expected price tag of just under $100. From the photo the iLive iT188B model looks to be iPhone/Touch friendly along with iPods and features a motorized dock with remote control.

The speaker bar appears to be an upgrade to iLive’s IHT3817DT speaker bar has dual subwoofers that are built-in, unlike many other docks which provide the subwoofer in a separate box.

Polaroid DPJ takes your iPod movies to the next levelPolaroid’s DPJ-08580B is only one of a hundred gadgets that go with your iPod, but it manages to stand out admirably. The device is basically a portable DVD player with an embedded iPod dock, which will allow you to view videos stored on your iPod in a larger format. Not huge mind you, but larger. The screen is 8.5 inches.

It retails for just 28,000 yen, which is about $252, but if you absolutely have to buy an accessory for your iPod, you will probably get more enjoyment out of this one then most of the other gadgets out there.
