    How much??? A crummy speaker that looks like an Apollo command module. No thanks, there's nothing wrong with my fingers, I know what the skip track button looks like and how to use it. This type of gimmick is for work shy people who also want a useless heart rate monitor on their phones in case they over exert themselves. Boy I've seen some gimmicky things in my time and this ranks right up there with them.

    No kidding... they coulda put this software in an app and sold it for $5, but what's the fun in that?
    I'll just go ahead right now and nominate this product for the award for 'thing I'd never buy without reading every possible online review'. As cool as this sounds, who needs a $400 bluetooth speaker with it's own Shuffle built in?

    For a bose dock people pay a bit more than half of this bluetooth speaker, if sound quality is close to that of the bose dock I don't see why someone wouldn't pay for something like this.

    I don't see any stats on the sound quality. To me this appears to be an expensive gimmick. How can a mono speaker compete with a proper hi fi?
