The iPod Hi-Fi speakers

So, it’s basically a nice set of speakers with an ipod slot? Oh.

I’m sure all the masses of manufacturers who have been selling similar concepts for a fair while now, ‘enhancing’ the ipod for their owners (ie: apple’s customers) are going to LOVE that! Hmm. Not.

Is this ‘biting the hand’ or digging the pocket?

    Yet another Apple example of form over function – “…crystal-clear, audiophile-quality sound…”

    That’s absolute BS. For a start the iPod itself isn’t capable of producing crystal-clear sound, the SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) is so poor that Apple have never published the details. To cap it all off, the frequency response of this unit is poorer than an iPod (only 16kHz max.) – It’s incapable of delivering nice, clear top end (where your cymbals and hi-hats go) 😉

    If they’re gonna claim audiophile quality, they should have at least put some tweeters on it. This is at best a toy, but I bet the marketing will sucker a LOT of people 😦

Who is this ‘kosso’ anyway?

I am a 'Createc'. A creative technologist, entrepreneur/ hacker/ geek. Worked on building things on the web for over 12 years.

Used to work at BBC News interactive and created the publishing and delivery systems for video news to get distributed on huge screens in major railway stations around the country.

I left the BBC to become CTO / sole-lead architect/developer at for three years.

I have now left them to build a start up a new system called 'Phreadz', which is a 'Social Multimedia Conversation Network', integrating everything that is 'V.I.T.A.L' to us on the web. Video, Images, Text, Audio and Links.

I built the whole thing my myself. I programmed every line of code and positioned every pixel. I'm looking forward to attracting an hiring new members of the team to help me out! :)

There are currently over 1000 happy and helpful beta testers on the system so far and one client of a white-labelled solution.
