I wish this was a robot in a suit with an iPad head that would listen to my problems and respond with an appropriately emotionical face and soothingly bionic voice. It is not!
What it is: The OnBeat is a iPad speaker dock (also fits iPhones and iPod whatevers) that lets you rotate the screen in either landscape or portrait mode (I would've had so much fun with my robot friend's spinny head). It's $US150. [JBL via Engadget]
(Coming soon! A series where I just tell you what I wish things were, instead of what they are.)
