Day-tripper John Hill takes an iMainGo on a journey of discovery. Join him as he goes earphones off and hands on with this much-hyped combined portable case and sound system for iPods.
You know what it's like. You're out with a few friends enjoying a picnic at some remote beauty spot in Tuscany. You've had a little vino and are getting well chilled out. Then someone says they feel like dancing.
Trouble is, while everyone's got their iPods, there's not a single shared track between the lot of you.
So what do you do?
