This works well for me, since I only buy products with the word “bucket” in their name.

I would like to see iLounge review this product as the weather resistant aspect is appealing.

I thought it was a trashcan with speakers at first. Being weather-resistant sounds questionable, too.

I worked on that image at work. We do a lot of work for Brookstone catalog and web. I had to color correct it and in some cases, I had to put in the iPod. I guess they just forgot to put the iPod in when photographing. I even had to change out the iPod screen with a different image on some shots. I worked on that image earlier in the year.

Is there an ice bucket inside to keep my beer cold?  I’ll need to down quite a few cold ones to get thick enough beer goggles to make this chubby turd look like it was a good purchase

I just received the boombucket for father’s day, but it doesn’t seem to be compatible with the ipod touch.  The instructions don’t say anything about the touch - has anyone else had experience with this?

where can I find the rechargeable battery for the boombucket.  MD Series 12MD-3.3?

You can call BrookStone and they will either replace the battery for free of you can buy one for $15 bucks.

I am looking to buy another clear plastic lid for my ipod bucket… does anyone sell just the lid. Mine was lost.
