The UK's biggest-selling daily tabloid, The Sun, has chosen to highlight an iPod peripheral in its weekly Gizmo column.

In what could be a sign that iPods are moving toward becoming a de rigeur, must-have item, rather than a chic choice for the cognoscenti, The Sun is highlighting the JBL On Stage product.

"These funky speakers are just what you need to make the most of your digital music," The Sun writes. The product ships in November and will cost £139 (including VAT).
