The hilarious, emotional and addictive ” Angry Birds” game has worked it’s way into the hearts of many and onto the floors of IFA. There are a lot of people who for some reason now have the pigs on their to assassinate list and take it quite seriously. That may get even more complicated after seeing the new Angry Birds Speakers from Gear4.
They come in all Angry Bird forms, except the yellow and blue bird (and that is a shame). Along with the militant angry green pig. The green pig is the iPod dock version. While the black and red Angry Birds are plug and play speakers. If you know you really have a vendetta against the evil green pigs; then please do yourself and others a favor by NOT getting the speaker in that form. I am sure you would not like to lose your screws and end up throwing rocks at the poor speaker and maybe hitting your iPod in the process. Not a good occurrence. mehr »

This may not give you the booming sound of Bang and Olufsen speakers but hey, would you ever want to doodle on your thousand-dollar speakers? We bet not. But this Design it Yourself eco speakers come with six colored pencils that let’s you customize the cardboard exterior (which also makes this product considerably green), to match your unique playlist. The product page says it has universal compatibility with iPods and other MP3 players so we assume it has 3.5mm output/input but other than that, no technical specs are posted. But if you’re only after the “eco” factor, you can go buy the product here.
Just when we thought the iPod docks has taken over the throne of the might ‘ole boomboxes of the past, just wait ’til you see the Three-Speaker Boombox from TDK. While many electronics companies have failed to recreate the boombox and make it blend with the iPod dominated world, TDK will be officially unveiling their own version at the CES on January. Boasting a streamlined design compared to the 1980s version, the TDK one is still a boombox. Equipped with a 35 watt RMS speakers, the Three-Speaker Boombox from TDK also includes iPhone/iPod support via USB, built in AM/FM tuner, an OLED display on the front, with a touch of that old oversized retro knobs.

Yes. The iPod is still alive. In fact, companies are still making iPod docks, iPod cases, and other related accessories.

While having an actual iPod dock is enough, some vehicles only have a cassette tape so this one is still useful. mehr »

Congratulations to Apple for hitting 10 billion downloads since iTunes store was first launched. The 10-billionaire user was very lucky to be given a $10,000 gift card (what, no cash?). Ten grand is a lot I wonder how that lucky person will be able to finish off the card. Can’t he just exchange it for cash so that he or she could buy more Apple products? mehr »
