What a good idea. This ceramic mug is not for you coffee, but for your iPod. Plug it in and drop it into the mug. Your iPod powers the mug's speakers, so no additional cords to clutter your desk.

Lightweight, collapsible speakers that you can carry with you and fold away when they are not in use. Plug them into the headphone socket of your personal sterio to enjoy the sound out loud.
I have these and they are amazing. The grip is great--awesome for bikers, gardner, driving, whatever....got mine from www.brooklyn5and10.com after doing a search online.
Cute and tiny.
