This angular, space-saving dock charges your iPhone or iPod and plays music on a single 3-inch integrated speaker. But the dock isn't complete without Altec Lansing's Alarm Rock app (free download in the App Store), which turns this system into a full-featured, interference-free alarm clock that will wake your loved one up with the tunes they choose.
Speaker docks are going green. The Soulra's integrated solar panel charges an iPhone or iPod as well as the dock's own battery. Flip down the panel and the rugged, splashproof dock protects their device as it plays music for up to 4 hours on the rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
The iP39's brushed aluminum sides look at home in any kitchen, and the compact speaker/dock leaves room on mom's counter so she can groove while she cooks. Dual kitchen timers and an easy-to-read LCD ensure her meals won't overcook, and the microwave-style membrane buttons are easy to clean.
Simple alarms don't wake your teen? In addition to its integrated main speakers, the iLuv Vibe Plus has a small tethered satellite speaker to place on a bed or under a pillow, and it vibrates until they rise and shine. The alarm clock is built into the unit, so they can use it with or without an iPhone or iPod.
This compact multi-function device has all his media covered: Aside from playing music from an iPhone or iPod, it's got a built-in CD/DVD player with HDMI (1080p upscaled) output and an FM radio. The dock's USB port lets him plug in a USB thumb drive so he can either play music from it or rip CDs directly to it.
