Santa Claus iPod Speakers: Ho Ho Hum

Santa Claus iPod Speakers: Ho Ho Hum
I saw these ridiculous looking speakers over on 7Gadgets and just had to give them a mention. The perfect accompaniment to your sequined Christmas sweater, these goofy speakers let you listen to your favorite holiday tunes emanating from the O-shaped mouth of of good old Saint Nick. Personally, I think they remind me more of the Travelocity gnome than Santa, but who am I to question?

Eek! Speakers That Look Like Mice (Sorta)

Sony Srs-Ax10 Speakers: the Aliens have Landed
Maybe it’s just me, but latest desktop speakers from Sony remind me of something out of the original War of the Worlds movie. The new SRS-AX10 speaker system offers a bold design that floats its speaker drivers in the air. While they’ll probably look pretty good alongside your computer, I can’t imagine that the 1-watt per channel amplifiers will be able to keep up with much more than the most basic listening needs.
