XtremeMac has unveiled three InCharge docking stations for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch at CES today. The InCharge Duo Plus, InCharge X3 and InCharge X5 multi-dock chargers provide 10 watts of energy per dock for simultaneously charging multiple iOS devices at once.
The sound from my iMac is actually pretty good, but for parties, I’ve long wanted a better speaker system that can really blast my iTunes tracks across the house, vaporizing any plaster that stands in the way. There are plenty of good options around, but I don’t like how they would disrupt the minimalist, contained aesthetic of my office.
The Tango Bar looks like just what I might want. It’s a USB powered sound bar that contains six, perfectly self-contained speakers, and looks great sitting beneath an iMac, matching its clean lines. And you can even use the build in 3.5mm jack to amplify your iPhone or iPad in a pinch.
Gorgeous, and not too pricey at just $100. Someone add this to my Christmas list.
XtremeMac recently released a thin plastic snap-on shell that covers the back of the iPad 2 called the Microshield ($35). It ships as is with no other options and the minimalist case leaves you wondering about who it was made to appeal to and the use of the word “shield” in selecting a name for it is misleading.
