As far as iPod music systems go, the iHome iH15 is about as simple as they come except for a small but brilliant design twist: it changes colors.
With the lights on, we can say the iH15 ($59.99) may not be all that exciting to look at, but it is--dare we say it--kind of cute. A 5.25-inch cube with some curves and a milky opaque plastic finish, it's got a bit of that '70s throwback thing going for it. Three small speakers adorn three of its four sides (one is a "passive subwoofer"). And just four buttons--one for power, two for volume, and one for toggling the color--run across the top of the unit just in front of the iPod dock. You get a 3.5mm line-in jack for other MP3 players or audio devices, but that's it. No radio, no alarm, no remote control.
