Technology is a funny thing. We're desperate for the next big thing, but as soon as it comes…we're nostalgic for the technology that's been dumped on the scrapheap. But there is a middle ground – this Boombox Speaker for iPhone and iPod for example.
Yes, that's right – old school looks meet new school technology. Compatible with all generations of iPod and iPhone, just slip in your Apple device (see how to do that over the page) throw out those vintage grooves via the 12w speakers within.
There's also an alarm and sleep function, accurate real time clock display, separate bass and treble controls, USB flash drive and SD/MMC card compatibility, a remote control and the option to use batteries or mains. £255 secures you one.
