    what a bummer

    I pre ordered one of these speaker docks as a nice little cheapie for my job overnight (I could never see myself using that microphone) and needless to say, it no longer exists.

    If you hit the links and go to the site to look at the product line, it's no longer listed. I knew $35 for something like that was too good to be true.
