Excerpt: Echoing my recent comment about the cellphone accessory market, I’m not sure if more money is spent on iPods or on accessories to go with them. The availability of good speakers that you can plug your mp3 player into has undoubtedly contributed to declining sales of stereo systems like some of us had in school.
Pros: Lightweight, Affordable, Small
Cons: Sounds good only if in front of the speakers

Summary: The Logitech S125i is a portable iPod speaker that is good to throw in your bag when heading out for a picnic. It doesn’t have perfect sound quality and it’s a little more expensive than we think it should be, but it’s built well and makes for a fun addition to your picnic basket.
Pros: Decent sound quality with reasonable bass, well built
Cons: Distortion at higher volumes, bass enhancement feature affects clarity, only 10 hours of battery life using four AAs
Excerpt: iPods and iPhones, the Apple’s gadgety saviours. We humans have become reliant on mobile music, and have been this way for decades. From the shoulder bearing Ghetto Blasters through to the more personal Walkmans and Discmans, it was a natural transition as music became digital – that the players would equal the media.
