So I recently conceded and bought a desk for my bedroom. With in a matter of weeks my table top was cluttered with papers, gadgets, computer speakers and needless to say the dock for my iPhone. Yes, minimizing clutter is a bid deal to me and hence why iHome’s newest product, the iH69s and IH70s would be a sweet addition. But unfortunately, they aren’t built for true iPhone use – they’re actually built for any docking iPods – as they probably aren’t shielded like the Altec Lansing T612. iHome has included their patented Reson8 speaker chambers (to give it bass) and have also included a remote, computer port (USB?), a sync switch, headphone jack and volume controls.

The iHome iH69 and iH70 are available for pre-order for $99.99 and $129.99 respectively and will hit retail outlets ‘soon’.

If you think I skimped on the details, check the press release after the ‘leap’

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
