I don’ think that “sophiticated” users would consider buying anything made by iLive.  Their products look cheaply made.

I can think of at least 40 or 50 personal speaker systems for the iPod that I would rather have, including all the Klipsch iGrooves, the JBL products, the Logitech ones, and a couple of dozen off-brand ones.

I agree with Galley. Look at iLive’s arsenal of products, and there’s something unsettlingly cheap about them.

With such an easy-to-remember name, how could could this not get popular?

There has to be a market for something better than the cheapo iPod speakers that dominate the market ... their product so far hasn’t been compelling but I’d rather judge this on what it sounds like, or what iLounge thinks of it? You’d think that Bose’s market share would be interesting to someone - there’s only a lot of poor sounding lookalikes so far.
