"Logitech has announced the Logitech X-240 speaker system for computers, which sports a control center that includes audio controls for a Mac or PC and serves as a cradle for an iPod or other MP3 player, PDA or mobile phone. The cradle, which stows away when not in use, lets you charge, sync and play a portable device with your computer. With plug-and-play functionality, the X-240 speaker system lets you dock, a digital device by simply plugging it into the cradle. When your device of choice is docked, you can charge it and sync or play your digital music. When not in use, the cradle can be stored flush with the control pod. The X-240 speakers include specialized trays for the iPod and Microsoft Zune. In addition to providing a custom fit, these trays help route the iPod or Zune charging cables behind the control pod and out of sight."
OK, now that's cool. I just might have to buy a pair of these. Unfortunately, Logitech's $50 speakers are often hit-and-miss sound quality, but that an integrated Zune cradle would make it worth trying. Yes, they got me with the gimmick. ;-)
