    OK, I guess thanks to [M]artin, half of us got a new iPod. If not, the other half already got one before, in anycase, I bet everyone has somekind of MP3 player (be it a DS with moonshell, a PSP or something else).

    I really want to get a boombox, but I'm out of options, I don't wanna spend more than 100USD on it (so this monstrosity is out of the question), but I'm also looking for great sound and some extra features like a dock, a remote (maybe even FM tuner?).

    So far, I have found some options, but I'm still undecided.

    Do you use one?, which one would you recommend?, which one would you get?

    Just a warning.. be careful if you're looking for something with a video out. Apple slyly changed the design so that older "non apple-chipped" docks won't do video. This mainly affects the cheapy stuff, but some expensive docks are affected as well. Whether this is a bug or an intentional crippling is being hotly debated as we speak.

    We'll see how it turns out, but I was rather upset that my camcorder cable wouldn't send video to the composite port of my tv, so I hope they either fix it, or someone clever finds a way around it soon.

    Gee, thanks mthrnite.
    I read somewhere that you got a Nano, did you also got a dock or some speakers for it?

    Edit:
    I saw and offer, and I could stop my right hand to not get my Credit Card and finally got this:
