There has been no shortage of iPhone and iPad accessories that attempt to mix old school technologies with the new. Some pull it off pretty well, while others are just comical. The iTypewriter is probably the most preposterous thing we’ve seen all month, but hipsters everywhere are going to love it.

You know that feeling you get when you see an iPhone accessory that’s so ridiculous you feel like you have to have it? Behold the Philips FWP3200D 300W Mini Hi-Fi System (say that 10 times fast). This giant jambox wants to make you the ultimate party rocker, but only if you’ve got £299.99 ($ 470) to drop. With a pair of 2-inch tweeters and 5.25-inch woofer, the “Party Machine” features a dual iPhone and iPod dock made  [Read More...]
