    where are the "tweeners?"

    Ya know, there should be the one foot, one foot and a half, two foot, two foot and a half. Doesn't iHome care they are losing market share and sales buy not offering at least half a dozen variations to confuse customers with? Sort of like that iPad mini and iPhone goliath edition Apple is about release.

    um

    Maybe it's because iHome listens to Apple and believes the average customer is too stupid to make a decision unless it's basically forced on them. So just make three models, make them different in so many ways, so the user is drawn to just a specific one. See, even stupid people can buy apple products!
