Our Gift-Guide series continues today as we look at audio products for iOS. Enjoy!
The Powered Rotation iPad Stereo Dock by Hammacher Schlemmer, $100
This is the docking station that rotates an iPad between portrait and landscape view from a remote control. The dock secures an iPad on three sides; its motorized rotating arm orients an iPad for optimal viewing from the included remote for watching videos. Two 5-watt, full-range speakers located on either side of the dock provide rich, clean sound. A free app turns an iPad into an alarm clock when docked, allowing you to wake to local FM stations (streamed through the Internet). The dock’s video-out port enables viewing on a television (requires component cable), and its audio-in port lets an external MP3 player use the speakers.
