iLuv doesn’t look to be impacted by the economic downturn. Today they unveiled yet another new product for ’09, and I gotta say, I like what I’m seeing. At a glance, the iLuv iHD171 appears to be your garden variety bedside alarm clock with iPod dock. But wait there’s more! It’s an HD radio, and on top of that, you can tag HD songs which will be stored in your iPod or iPhone (yes, it’s iPhone compatible), which probably means you can download them from iTunes (I prefer Amazon’s MP3 store) for later listening. The iHD171 also includes a wireless remote, video outputs and syncs its time to your iPhone.

Expect the iLuv iHD171 January 2009 for $200.

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."
