on my christmas list. I want a yellow iPod
The rockstar of tech has passed. RIP Steve Jobs. Your legacy lives every time I punch my keyboard, dial a phone number or watch an episode of TV on my ipad. My kid knows exactly who you are and what you did. Thanks for peeking into the future and making it a reality for so many people!! You changed the world and how we live and communicate.

The newest addition to the thodio arsenal, the A-BOX. straight from the army, an original ammobox with a design from the fifties. so good its still in use.
The A-BOX is made of 1mm steel plate fortified from the inside with 6mm trespa and made as inert as possible with vibration dampening material to ensure a ridiculously good sound for a piece of metal added to that are the high quality components of its luxurious brother, the iBox, for a crystal clear sound, even at high volumes. The A-BOX comes equipped with an integrated rechargeable battery like you would expect from such an outdoor ready product.
iPod/mp3 player can be connected on the outside of the A-BOX as well as the inside so you can listen to your tunes while running around with the A-BOX for example or just protecting your iPod from bullets and stuff.
The A-BOX comes in 2 models: the light edition with 2 x 25 watts rms amplifier and woven glass fiber speakers (carbon color) this model will cost 350 euros but because of it’s introduction the price will be 250 euros (339.00$) temporarily. and the heavy edition sporting 2 x 70 watts amplifiers and woven kevlar speakers (the yellow material used in bullet proof vests) this version will be selling for 475 euros normally, now for 350 euros (475.00$) intro price.
Both versions have indication lights in the bass tube which will indicate the status of the battery with white, orange and red colors. the heavy version however has an extra feat, indication lights behind the speakers which will warn against distortion when the unit is driven too loud. this gives a funky disco effect when driven slightly too loud.
Obviously, the A-BOX is not really bulletproof, why should it be? but the speakers are really made of kevlar, just not in the thickness required to protect anything from bullets.
