What sets this iPod speaker apart from the sea of others on the market? First of all, what’s up the in the company name, Boynq? Are we pronouncing it wrong, or is anyone else giddly with grade-school delight?
Crudeness aside, the actual product is the WakeUp, an iPod speaker that also incorporates an alarm clock, so you can wake up to your favorite one-hit wonders that no respectable radio station would ever play.
It also works with any and every iPod ever made—even the new touch and iPhone. Other features include an FM radio, a built-in equalizer and 20 watts of amplification.
Not a bad accessory, especially for $185. There’s no word on U.S. availability, but if you’re traveling through Europe for the holidays, we have a preference for Belgian chocolates and this baby in white.
