The IPod Pillow: Why Pillows and CD Players Do Not Mix
A lot of things go well together. Peanut butter and jelly, Ham and Cheese, Aaron Sorkin and Witty Dialouge. However, music and pillows are not one of them.
So, after connecting my CD player to the pillow, I rest my head down, and listening to the crappy Mono speaker come to realize this pillow is about as comfy as a rock. It's too soft to be firm, and too firm to be soft, so you really just find ways to burry it under other pillows. Now, why is this a problem? Well, if the purpose of this pillow is to play music from a CD player, and you're covering up the speaker, all you're doing is killing a battery or three. Also, the cord that you use to connect to the CD Player or IPOD is so flimsy that you're afraid you will break it. Which is never good in a product that you're supposed to sleep with.
Which ironically enough (Or via cunning writing strategy) brings me to my second bone of contention. This thing is a nightmare. The one Speaker is on the side, so, no matter how you're going to sleep with this pillow, the speaker will either be covered by you, or right in your ear, causing distortion. Also, the cord in which you use to connect it to your IPOD or CD player of choise is short. logic would dictate that you would place said IPOD or CD player on perhaps a table or some other surface. However, the length of this chord prohibits that. So you litterally have to have your IPOD or CD player on your person. And god save you if you toss and turn at night, because that cord'll rip out so fast you won't know what hit you.
Now the question becomes, why the heck would they think of this? I imagine the logic was "People like Sleeping, People like Music"...Lets combine the two. I imagine this logic is perhaps broken. For example "People like swimming, people like toast" is not a logical combiniation. nor is a pillow that plays music. I know, I know, a few of you are thinking "well, just lay NEXT to the pillow" when you sleep. I know, imagine, some device that you could place next to your bed, that would play music and maybe even display the time.
