We gotta hand it to JBL.  In the grotesquely crowded marketplace of iPod Docks they’ve managed to conjure up a design that is eye catching, though it’s probably not the most aesthetically pleasing.

The On Stage IV iPod/iPhone dock has four full-range transducers and a Weave design that JBL says “will flood virtually any room or outdoor space with realistic JBL sound”.  What if JBL sound is the crapiest thing you’ve ever heard?

It can be powered by 6 AA batteries for up to 16 hours of playback, and there is an include IR remote as well as an AC charger.

JBL is selling it direct for $149.95.

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."
