Picked two of these up this evening at Officeworks Townsville.
Just gave them a shot and they sound pretty damn good for the $54.
Altec Lansing offers two apps that work with this - Music Mix and Alarm mode. Music Mix allows you to have a partner or friend plug their iPod/iPhone in and it shuffles between the two iDevices - at a set percentage (so you can set your wifes shuffle priority to 30% and yours to 70%!).
I bought mine for an Alarm, but it's already proving to be my own little corner speaker setup in my cramped room.
