Let there be light, and music

Shine on you crazy cats

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Some people claim music lightens a gloomy mood, but the iHome iPod docking station lamp is guaranteed to shed some light on the subject – literally.

iHome: crank up the volume and the brightness

The iHome is an iPod docking station at heart, but a desktop lamp also sprouts out of the dock’s top to help illuminate your iPod, working area or, just maybe, your mood.

Speakers are built into the base

Several styles of iHome are available, but each docks most iPod models, including the Nano and Mini. The music player is also charged whilst sat in the dock.

Speakers are built into the base unit, so you’ll be able to listen to Marilyn Manson in the dark or Girls Aloud with the lamp’s halogen bulb glaring down.

iHome iPod docking station lamps are available online in the US from $50 (£25/€37). A UK price or release date hasn’t been given yet.
