Memorex has come out with a total of six new swanky iPod and iPhone audio systems, ranging from travel sized speaker systems to alarm clocks. The systems are all compatible with the iPhone 4, as well as the new iPod Nano 6G and iPod Touch 4G. Amongst the line up is the clutch-style TagAlong Portable Boombox which is actually a follow up to their best selling MiniMOVE Boombox system. Meanwhile, their PartyCube CD Sound System will be appealing to those who still have CDs laying around, especially at a time when iPod docks with dedicated CD players are disappearing. This system also features a top loading CD player, multi-directional speakers, an AM/FM radio with presets, a line-in jack, and backlit display. This is why so many of the systems in this new lineup have emphasized portability, durability and ease of use – for example, even the alarm clock on the new Clock Radio Dual Alarm feature back-lit buttons that walk you through the process of... Featuring integrated collapsible handles, lightweight lithium-ion rechargeable batteries and durable rubberized bottoms, the PartyCube Sound System and PartyCube CD Sound System provide the ultimate flexibility for families’ music-inspired moments.

Though an iPod or iPhone fan's need for a CD player is increasingly questionable with every passing year, Mi9490 is a sleeker option for CD users than its predecessor, requiring only 14 inches of width and 5 inches of depth to spare on a surface. Most notable about Mi9490 is the fact that it doesn’t look, feel, or constrain components like the typical $140 iPhone-ready audio system: JBL’s On Stage 200ID is just one example of a two-driver iPhone-shielded speaker unit that costs more and... Appreciating Mi9490’s functional similarities and changes doesn’t require a full knowledge of all the clunky CD-slash-radio-slash-speakers that have come before, but a quick look at the Mi1111 reveals just how streamlined and comparatively compact...
Just look at your bedside table - you've probably got an alarm clock there, your iPhone charger wire will be lying around somewhere (if it hasn't fallen down the back) and you may even have a radio. That's where the dock comes in, and we've put five of the best iPhone alarm clock docks through their paces so you can choose your perfect bedside companion. They don't all have identical sets of features, so you won't get a DAB or FM radio in all of them, and others have neat features such as multiple alarms or twin docking ports, so you and your partner can both charge your phones as you sleep and... But remember that even if the dock you go for doesn't have a radio, there are plenty of apps to give you these abilities on the App Store, so don't let this be a deal-breaker if you think the dock suits you otherwise. Some models also have remote controls, so if you're really lazy you can flip through your music collection without even needing to reach your arm across. And while they're all models that plug into the mains, you need never be worried about missing your alarm if there's a power cut because you can put backup batteries in every single one of them. Having a digital clock by your bed was a must here, as was an alarm to wake you in the morning.
