    Griffin Journi and Amplifi iPod Sound Systems: One's Portable, One's Made of Wood. What's Not to Like?

    Griffin just came out with two new iPod speaker systems, the Journi and the Amplifi. The $150 Journi, whose name evokes the shrill voice of Steve Perry, is a portable system that’s supposed to be rugged and all that jazz. It does look fairly attractive and if it sounds as good as Griffin says it does—your music won’t sound like it was run “through a meat… Read More

    Griffin AirDock iPod Dock: Now With Space Age "Remote-Controller"

    If I didn’t know any better, I’d say that the Griffin AirDock looks no better (nor any worse) than any of the 2.3 million iPod docks out there. In addition to syncing your iPod, charging the battery, and outputting all audio/video to an external device, the AirDock has an RF remote control. Did you hear that? A remote control, people! Through the magic of radio, the remote control… Read More

  • Griffin Radio Shark 2: Like TiVo For Radio, Now Better Sound Quality

    Griffin Radio Shark 2: Like TiVo For Radio, Now Better Sound Quality

    Griffin’s radio Shark, a TiVo-like device that records AM/FM radio onto your computer’s hard drive, has been ever so slightly updated and is now the Radio Shark 2. An included antenna and improved radio chip — which should lead to better sound quality, natch — are the reasons they’re calling this “2” as opposed to “a new Radio Shark.”… Read More

  • DIY iTrip Signal Booster In An Altoids Tin

    DIY iTrip Signal Booster In An Altoids Tin

    An Altoids tin being used in a DIY project? Who would have thought! An eBay user named Cody recently purchased a Griffin iTrip despite knowing that it has crap reception. Cody then proceeded to build a signal booster with a 9V battery and an antenna stuck in an Altoids tin. Now he’s breaking FCC regulations and his iTrip works a hell of a lot better! It’s an age-old story, people… Read More

    If you feel like dropping $350 on an iPod dock than Griffin’s new Evolve is it. The Evolve consists of a dock that also charges, RF remote, and two rechargeable dual channel wireless speakers. Said speakers are said to work up to 150 feet away, wish they’d prove it at CES. Pretty cool since everything is wireless. Product Page Read More

  • Griffin Brings the Obnoxiousness of Disko to Nano

    , it’s a polycarbonate case to protect your svelte MP3 hardware. In most respects, it’s fairly typical, other than the “ring of bling,” a series of lights around the clickwheel that light up into patterns to force those with epilepsy into submission. Read More

  • Griffin's USB Powered Knob Turns Up Whatever

    We know this is, like, a million Internet years old, but we’ve never featured it before, and we know it’ll be new to a lot of our readers. It’s a knob. That’s all, just a knob. It’s from Griffin, is USB, and programmable, so you can use it as a volume knob, or as an old-school shuttle control for video editing, but it’s still just a knob. You could possibly… Read More

  • Griffin's New disko Much Like Tara Reid: Plastic and Tacky

    Jonathan Ive and his design team at Apple set a watershed when they developed the clean, streamlined design of the iPod. Considered still to be the ultimate in form and function, there is little to improve upon. So why not go the other way and completely vivasect their diligent work with this new disko case from Griffin? Obviously designed by some executive’s stoned 13 year-old… Read More
