Here at Gear Live, we’ve been in love with for years now. If you are a music lover, they are a company that you should definitely check out. One thing we love is that Sonos released a free app that allows you to control your system from an iPhone or iPod touch, rather than having to rely on their proprietary controller. Since the hit the streets, we’d been wondering when we would see some love on that platform from Sonos as well. Now we have the answer.

HMS Battleship FM Tuner

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Portable Audio / Video, Toys,

HMS Battleship RadioReplace that outdated rubber ducky with this waterproof HMS Battleship. The floating ship has an FM tuner with auto-scanning, volume control and reset button.
