Amid the software, shop talk and iPhone/Apple TV frenzy at this week's Macworld Convention in SF were some darling, girlie treats for your desktop. The JBL Spyro speaker display actually drew a crowd of women (and men!), who were intrigued by the far-out design. The compact Spyro , $129.99, is a 2.1-channel system that looks like a mushroom with two flowers that act as a subwoofer.
Despite the system's girlie looks, I was throughly impressed with its sound quality for the price tag. The quality was far superior to the usual small desktop speakers, and while pink isn't really my color, I think a white set would look smashing next to my cinema screen.
