Soundfreaq Ghost Sound Platform: The (iPhone) Friendliest Ghost You Know

What is it about characters that are named Ghost that works so well? I liked Ghost in The Matrix and Matrix games, the direwolf named Ghost in A Game of Thrones, and there are probably other instances of this name working well. This time around, Soundfreaq’s new dock now comes available in a white version, perfect to match your white iPhone 4 or white iPad 2. And naturally, they smartly named it Ghost.
