No great loss imoiPod Hi-fi going bye-bye?
Meanwhile, Think Secret sources believe Apple's stand-alone iPod speaker system, the iPod Hi-Fi, is slated to get the axe in the near future.
Apple launched the $349 speaker system in February 2006, going so far as to devote one of its rare media events to the accessory, which was seen as another means for Apple to tap into the lucrative iPod economy,
While the Hi-Fi has received generally favorable reviews, sources say sales of the speaker system apparently haven't materialized to an extent that justifies keeping the product in Apple's rotation.
It's uncertain whether Apple will replace the Hi-Fi with another speaker solution or simply exit that segment of the market.
