HomeDock Music Remote
Digital Lifestyle Outfitters (DLO) today unveiled its HomeDock Music Remote, a remote control enabling users to connect an iPod to a home stereo and roam freely about the housewhile viewing and controlling music. The new remote includes a slim, compact OLED display to show which song is playing. Users simply dock an iPod and download song as well as playlist information to the remote, allowing users to view and navigate selected iPod playlists and artists from anywhere within 150 feet. Users can also create on-the-fly playlists containing up to 10 tracks via a special "Jukebox" feature, according to the company. DLO's HomeDock remote uses RF signals to work through walls and ceilings. The HomeDock Music Remote is priced at $130, and is available from Apple retail stores and DLO.com.
