This week at iLounge: From the cool to the obscure, this last week has brought an interesting array of new iPod accessories to our offices for testing. Griffin's iKaraoke wireless karaoke system is one of the more eye-catching - a silver microphone that connects to your iPod and broadcasts singalong tracks via an FM transmitter to any radio. Then there are a couple of interesting cases - the slightly-spooky NanoMonsters for iPod nano are hard rubber stands with cartoony monsters painted on one side, while Orbino's Cambio premium leather cases include palladium rings and impressive belt clips.
: the cavalcade of iPod docking speakers shows no sign of letting up, so we've been doing our best to keep up with everything that's coming in. In addition to First Looks at JVC's new RA-P10 portable clock radio and i.Dream America's crazy faux vacuum tube component speaker system, we reviewed three all-in-one systems: Monitor Audio's i-deck compact, Saffire's weirdly named iPod Hi-Fi-alike iWoogie Blaster, and Kensington's surprisingly good SX 3000R speaker with on-iPod FM tuning and a remote control.
We also took a look at the supposed smugness of Apple and its fans - your comments are welcome - and did an A-B-C comparison of all three recording accessories for 5G iPods and new iPod nanos, from Belkin, Griffin, and XtremeMac.
