If you’re thinking ‘oh great, just another iPod boombox’, don’t worry I am too (sorry, I wish I had some way of quelling your disappointment).  The Kenwood CR-iP500 is a bit more elegant than your standard piece of iPod kit, though, but all said and done it does the expected: plays back music from an iPod, features a CD player, FM radio, remote and some sort of ‘less is more’ LED screen.

You can buy an LG branded version of it here for $180

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."
