"Didn't look like anyone was going to buy me an iPod Hi-Fi. Set to work on a couple of MacPlus cases and so the iPod Hi-Fi mini was born."
That's how Australian Simon Clement of Arawak Art Solutions opens up a photo essay on Flickr explaining both the how and the whys of his tinkering away at some old Macs to turn them into a pair of speakers for his iPod.
The iPod Hi-Fi, by comparison, is a unibody boom box put out by Apple Computer itself.
