Nice idea, not as ugly as all those other speaker systems. Maybe they bother to come up with a powerful version? Like 30 or even 60W?

ppt: I do. NPR, indie stations, and the abilitiy to catch a ballgame or weather report still make radio a worthwhile feature, even for a device primarily built around the iPod. However, I got the iH5 for Christmas, so I don’t need this. = )
