  • USB Superdock: ESATA, 2-port hub, card reader

    USB Superdock: ESATA, 2-port hub, card reader

    Here’s a new multi-function dock from Brando that handles SATA hard drives, has a built-in card reader (SD, MiniSD, CompactFlash, MicroSD, Memory Stick), and functions as a 2-port USB hub. It’s a little on the pricey side at $79.00, but that’s largely due to the $25 shipping charge since it’s coming from Hong Kong. Looks pretty good, especially if you need to swap out hard… Read More

  • $3,000 Ferrari iPod dock better come with a magnet that attracts a specific part of the female anatomy

    $3,000 Ferrari iPod dock better come with a magnet that attracts a specific part of the female anatomy

    Are you stupid? Do you have too much money? Well then get yourself down to Meridian where you can pick up the Meridian F80, an iPod dock that has been sexified with the Ferrari logo. While I agree that fools and their money should be often and energetically parted, do you have to do it so ostensibly? I don’t care if this thing makes my Fiona Apple MP3s sound amazing: why is it worth $2,995? Read More

  • RED HOT! OMG! ZUNE KICKER DOCK NOW AVAILABLE, TO THE RAMPARTS!

    RED HOT! OMG! ZUNE KICKER DOCK NOW AVAILABLE, TO THE RAMPARTS!

    Friends, you’ve been waiting. You’ve been wanting. You’ve been crying from the depths, asking for deliverance. Well, deliverance is finally here and it comes in the form of a fairly beefy Zune dock called the ZK 500 Kicker. It costs $349.99 and, um, plays the music of your Zune through its HUGE five-inch woofers and 3/4″ silk dome tweeters. That is significantly better than… Read More

  • DLO lays an egg with new iPhone, iPod Touch speakers

    [photopress:portspeakers_horizontal_lrg.jpg,full,center] I travel a lot, it’s part of being a famous blogger, and I usually watch video on my iPod when I’m flying, because I can’t watch that one episode of Friends again without wanting to kill Matt Perry. I usually find a way to prop up my iPod so I can watch Beerfest without my arm going numb. In my hotel, I usually arrange my… Read More

  • Macworld 2008: DLO's HomeDock HD is maybe the most innovative thing we've seen so far

    Macworld 2008: DLO's HomeDock HD is maybe the most innovative thing we've seen so far

    DLO, makers of so many rad iPod cases and docks we can’t keep track of them all, has outdone itself with its new HomeDock HD. While it’s tempting to say it’s just another iPod dock with video out, that would be incorrect. The HomeDock HD doesn’t just feature HDMI and component out to work better with your HDTV, it also features upconverting technology, meaning it can take… Read More

  • iPhone pig docks from China

    iPhone pig docks from China

    Biggs, Devin and I trekked over to the Sands to try and get into some AVn mischief, but, sadly, we were denied. Instead of scantily clad women we found iPod/iPhone docks from China. There were pigs and something resembling Inky. I’m completely delirious and need to go home. Read More

  • Bexy's iMirror: New Company, Cool iPod Dock

    Bexy's iMirror: New Company, Cool iPod Dock

    Running with the idea that there aren’t enough iPod docking solutions, let alone enough companies making iPod docking solutions, today finds a press release about the launch of a new company that makes iPod docking solutions, called Bexy. Rhymes with “sexy”. Not sure why. At first blush, the new iMirror dock looks a little nicer than some, but it’s nothing that hasn’t… Read More

  • iHome iH82: The iHome Speaker Dock You Know And Love, Now With Two Speakers

    iHome iH82: The iHome Speaker Dock You Know And Love, Now With Two Speakers

    Companies have yet to perfect the iPod speaker dock. That, or people keep buying the damn things, year after year, minor revision after minor revision. Either way, iHome’s iH82 can be thought of as nothing more than an iH80, itself just a speaker with a hole on top to plug your iPod, with an additional speaker. Yes, iHome has lost its mind and now has its flagship iPod speaker dock rocking… Read More

  • TerraTec Electronic Noxon 2: An iPod Dock+Radio With Built-in Wi-Fi

    TerraTec Electronic Noxon 2: An iPod Dock+Radio With Built-in Wi-Fi

    It’s been a while since I’ve written about any sort of iPod speaker, but TerraTec Electronic’s Noxon 2′s attempt to be all things to all people is worth a mention. This little guy has a built-in iPod dock (duh!), Wi-Fi and FM radio. It’s also got USB ports so you can connect external hard drives and the like. The Wi-Fi is used to connect to Internet radio streams… Read More

  • Sony Ready To Release Another iPod Dock: The DockTDM

    Sony Ready To Release Another iPod Dock: The DockTDM

    Poor Sony, lackluster PS3 sales and all but pushed out of the digital music business by Apple. To that end, it’s releasing the $100 Digital Media Port iPod DockTDM-IP1, an iPod dock that integrates with its Bravia line of home theater equipment. Not too much going on here: just plug the iPod (fourth or fifth-gen, mini, or nano) into the connector then plug the unit into Bravia’s… Read More

 
  • Razer Brings Zune Docking to Suh-Wheat White Keyboard

    Although it looks like a pool toy, this is indeed a theoretical keyboard with a Zune dock. It’s also got two USB ports on the back to save you even more precious on-PC ports. It’s even in white to match your white Zune. No word on if this comes in black or Zunebrown, but we’re guessing no. Besides the Zune connection, this media keyboard has specialized keys for your media apps… Read More

  • Zune Hi-Fi Like Dock Arrives

    Zune Hi-Fi Like Dock Arrives

    Well, that didn’t take long. The same day that the Zune price-point and date were announced, Zune accessories start popping up. This is the Octavio, made by Australian company VAF Research. It looks astonishingly like the iPod Hi-Fi. How about that? The Octavio is the first accessory to bear the “Made for Zune” logo and will apparently be available in “late 2006.” No… Read More

  • Mustek Paragon TW450 for iPod

    Mustek Paragon TW450 for iPod

    Well it might not be overkill in terms of power, but I think this one is more going for aesthetics. The Paragon TW450 from Mustek features a 45-watt amp and has a 5.25-inch dual-coil subwoofer. It stands 38-inches high and comes in a glossy black or white finish. The main selling factor here is appearance. It’s not the most powerful or best sounding iPod dock out there, but I don’t… Read More

  • Gamexpert Phase 4 PSP Hi-Fi

    Gamexpert Phase 4 PSP Hi-Fi

    This is one of those products that you have to stop and ask yourself, “Is this really necessary?” Aside from being horrendously obtrusive and clunky, Gamexpert 4 PSP Hi-Fi adds 23 watts of stereo sound through two mid-range drivers and a down-facing subwoofer. The dock features an auxiliary input so that you can hookup something else instead of your PSP. It also includes a remote… Read More
