Let's see, a Toblerone-shaped iPod speaker dock and… ooh a nice sub in the background there and, stop, wait a minute... is that a Sony logo we see?Well bless our souls, it really is a Sony speaker dock for the Apple iPod, the main rival to and sole destroyer of its Walkman music crown. Guess if you really can't beat them, just accessorise them.The CPF-IP001 promises to "Turn your iPod music player into a full-blown stereo system". Hmm, where have we heard that a zillion times before?But at least that chunky subwoofer looks like it'll give those tin cans a bit of bass boost. And good news for Walkman owners, there is an auxiliary input for non-Apple blessed players.
