Meet George - Digital iPod Playback System

George -- the first digital audio system to combine an iPod music playback system, a bandless AM/FM radio and an alarm clock in one product. George extends iPod navigation with the industry™s only wireless remote that fully controls all iPod functions. George was built to last -- it is fully upgradeable to support future software via a rear USB port. It also boasts amazing sound -- George even went on tour with the Rolling Stones last summer!
