This was one of the things that I wasn't excited for at all. It was rumored to be released and it has. The Apple iPod HiFi. This was just a stupid move by Apple I thought. This thing isn't the usual well designed, well thought-out product from Apple. When I first saw this I thought ugly, big. Plus it's way too pricey at $349. C'mon Apple, you gotta be kiddin me. I don't understand why Apple would make an iPod speaker system now, so late in the game. And why would I get this over the Bose Sound Dock. The Bose Sound Dock is much slimmer, good audio, and it's fifty bucks cheaper at $299. This product is nothing new and personally would never buy it.
