Behringer's iNuke Boom car-sized iPhone dock is one of the most ridiculous speakers ever created. But as our own Sam Biddle discovered at CES, it's so massive your inhibitions about dancing in public are instantly sucked away into its black hole of decibels. So why did Behringer completely neuter it with this tiny Junior version?
Since the iPhone 5 Lightning adaptor has a chip that prevents you from using third-party cables, you can forget about using an inexpensive off-brand dock. That setup didn't suit Casey Neistat, a filmmaker who prefers to keep a (now obsolete) dock firmly bolted to his desk.
Fans of Apple's own generational iPhone docks may be disappointed to learn that no such accessory will be manufactured for the iPhone 5.
Here is an interesting theory: the new dock connector in Apple's next iPhone could be a 19-pin port that would be mechanically and electrically compatible with the microUSB standard. I don't know what it would be like, but I love the idea.
