A steaming cup of iPod, please

A well-designed dock can make the difference between your DAP having a fulsome life at home pumping out jaunty entertainment or sitting by the front door waiting for you to go jogging again.  Some companies go the high-tech route, packing in tube-amps, displays or, um, toilet-roll holders, while others rely on quirky design to catch your attention (and your credit card).

I.D.E.A. have obviously taken the second route.  I can't imagine the single speaker at the base of this ceramic MusicMug qualifies as "high fidelity" but I suppose if you're going to leave your mp3 player somewhere you might as well sit it in a cup.

Available now for $40
