Speaker iron is new wrinkle for iPod

The latest iPod mate is at least trying to stand apart

Chip Chick

Few categories have been so overdone than iPod speakers. After posting our last item on a pair of these ubiquitous products, we imposed an unofficial moratorium on them. It lasted a lot longer than expected: a whole six days. We figure we missed 40 or 50 speaker announcements in that time.

So why are we breaking the fast now? Just look at the picture, Sparky. It's a speaker shaped like an iron. And a pink one at that, though it also comes in orange and lime green. Even Chip Chick was moved to declare it "the oddest iPod speaker we've laid eyes upon yet." That's saying a lot.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube.
