Speaking of watching movies on a portable device, this overly-named ‘EZ-18B’ stand from Bird-Electron for the iPhone & iPod Touch features a 60mm full range speaker so you don’t have to rely on their crappy mono speaker if you’ve opted not to use headphones. The stand’s speaker connects to the iPhone or Touch via a simple stereo mini-plug, and while it’s nice that it doesn’t require its own power source, don’t expect the sound to be particularly loud. The front panel where you rest your device also features a 45 degree angle providing a ‘perfect’ viewing angle, and even comes with a silicon seat to protect your toys from scratching against the metal finish. But even with a built-in speaker, the $79.99 price tag from AudioCubes is a bit ridiculous given the plethora of cheaper and even DIY stands already available.
