Here’s something a bit more useful from Hammacher today, a dock that lets you leave your iPod but take the speakers with you. Those wireless, 2-3/4-inch 3-watt spherical speakers operate on a wide 915 MHz frequency to ensure there’s minimal interference from other wireless devices, and they’ve got a half-decent range of about 120 feet. Each speaker is powered by a rechargeable battery that’s good for about 8 hours of playback, and when used together they operate in stereo mode, or old-timey mono when separated.
The dock itself accepts most iPod models, but also has a 3.5mm audio jack for connecting pretty much any other audio source as long as you’ve got the right cabling. $149.95 on the Hammacher Schlemmer website.
