Creative Labs looks to be venturing over to Apple's side of the fence, with their new iPod desktop speaker systems, the I-Trigue and the TravelSound (ideal for those looking for portability). "Creative Labs wins my vote for the most magnanimous tech company, since it has produced what amounts to an Apple accessory while its own very respectable MP3 player (the Nomad Jukebox) competes with the iPod for market share." At just under $US100, like most Creative speaker systems these look to be a real bargain. According to early reports, they're great performers as well.
