'Julia' speaker is an iPod tripod

A higher profile, quite literally.

Crave readers clearly haven't gotten enough iPod news lately, so we thought we'd pitch in with a word about one of the player's accessories, which we all know are so rare. Besides, how often does a gadget have a name that sounds more like a designer fragrance?

The "Julia"--or "BoomTune Mini Julia," according to Fareastgizmos, to be exact--is a portable speaker device that stands like a tripod, giving your iPod a higher profile (as if it needed one). The 1-watt speakers aren't exactly meant for a pool party, but this little style maven is meant to be seen as much as it is heard, in hues of pink or blue. And given the competition , it won't be hard for this gal pal to rise above the fray.
