The iPod's minimalist design has inspired sleek audio complements. For the iPod's design-conscious fans, Tivoli Audio has spiced up its classic Portable Audio Laboratory (PAL), a battery-powered AM/FM radio. Thanks to its surprisingly big sound -- and a standard input jack -- the PAL has become a favorite iPod mate.
Now, with an eye to winning over collectors, Tivoli has rolled out the PAL 2005 Fashion Collection, which comes in four custom shades that will be switched yearly -- in sync with runway trends -- and then permanently retired. Of course, an iPod isn't necessary to enjoy the $150 PAL's clean look and sound. But it comes in an iPod-white version, too, just in case.
