Altec Lansing on Tuesday introduced their USB-powered ulraportable Orbit speaker.
The Orbit's USB cable is used for audio input and power, doing away with the need for batteries and a 3.5mm audio jack.
It's perfect for augmenting your notebook's tinny speakers with something more powerful. The downside? With only a USB connection, that's all it's good for.
The OrbitUSB will be available this October for $50.
