Security for virtualized datacentres

Sony has unveiled two new iPod docks, one with wireless Bluetooth capabilities and the other with a USB port for MP3 playback.

The CMT-V75BTiP and the CMT-V50iP both sport docks compatible with the iPod, iPhone and iPad, as well as a subtly hidden CD player for those still attached to their physical music collection.

The CMT-V75BTiP packs the Bluetooth connectivity, streaming music from the iOS platform wirelessly. It also comes with DAB/DAB+ support for digital radio fans.

The CMT-V50iP turns up with a USB port, so users can plug in their sticks and access MP3s.
