Lights-on with iHome's 'iLamp' iPod dock

We're not writing this off--we're simply filing it under "WTF LOL ROFLMAO EH?"

A bog-roll holder with an iPod dock and speakers built-in was always going to be one of the most unusual instances of modern convergence. But although daft, it's sort of a useful idea, because most of us don't have speakers in our bathrooms. We do, however, have speakers in our bedrooms, which is why we're confused about whether a bedside lamp with an iPod dock and speakers built-in is anything but an epic fail.

iHome's new $180 iHL31 is the brother of the $130 iHL20, another iPod-ready lamp. Both are on sale only in the U.S., suggesting that those of us under the power of No. 10 aren't quite ready for a product resulting from the brainstorm of a confused electronics revolutionist.

Yet we're not writing this off--we're simply filing it under "WTF LOL ROFLMAO EH?" It's by no means going to be a big seller, we'll say that much. But for someone in need of both a lamp and an iPod on the same shopping trip, it might not be the single worst consideration to make in the whole of that day.

But I won't be investing. I'm out.
