It's summer, so pump up the iPod ice bucket

Another outdoor music system looks like a picnic cooler.

SkyMall

What is it about outdoor music systems that makes manufacturers insist on designing them to look like ice buckets? Are they supposed to look like coolers or ice cream makers to blend in with the poolside decor?

Whatever. SkyMall, everyone's favorite catalog at 30,000 feet, is the latest to offer one of these picnic wannabes with its "Boombucket iPod Music System." Like others of its ilk, the $150 bucket claims to be "weather-resistant" and can play an iPod up to 8 hours per battery charge, though we wouldn't recommend dunking it for laughs.

If companies insist on going this route, we suggest that they figure out how to make music from the "Motorized Cruzin Cooler." Now then we'd be listening.
