So here's a dandy little speaker for the iPhone and iPod. Delightfully portable, the speaker can be positioned horizontally or vertically for listening to Music or for viewing videos, while the iPhone or iPod is comfortably docked. That feature, alone, would make the iLuv IMM-190 iPhone - iPod Speaker a unique gotta-have for virtually anyone at home. Yet, it goes even further. iLuv offers an Alarm Clock for iPhone / iPod touch APP (available from Apple iTunes app store). Downloading that APP and using it with the IMM-190 elevates the speaker into a Desktop alarm clock. Anyway you look at it, the clock will be bold and in the right position.
