Recently, the idea of having a whole-home audio system has become a lot more reasonable for a lot more people. It's not nearly as expensive to acquire as it once was, and a great many players have now entered the market. One of the biggest and best remains Sonos, and the company is moving one step closer towards the mainstream with their latest introduction.

The new Sonos iPod accessory, the Sonos Wireless Dock (WD100), is meant to pair with their heralded Multi-Room Music System. With the Dock, users can play all of the music from an iPod or iPhone in every room of the house, and considering just how many people already own iPods, well...you can imagine the potential sales. You simply dock your iPod in the accessory, take it around your home, and stream wirelessly to your Sonos-attached sound system.

The Sonos Wireless Dock is compatible with the following devices: iPod touch (1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation), iPod classic, iPod nano (3rd, 4th, and 5th generation), iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G and iPhone, and has been certified by the developer to meet Apple performance standards. That said, it's one of the most expensive units of its kind, but those with a Sonos system already may not mind the $119 price when it ships next month.

Not in a million years. I can already do all of this for free with an existing physical connection.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
