Specs

It must be able to charge

Charge what? Charge the docking system itself or the mp3 player?, MP3, No. This isn't a requirement. It's not an MP3 charger., What does it charge through?, No USB.

It must store mp3 player

It must have buttons

Why does it have to have buttons? why can't it be controlled through speech commands? what about a remote control?, Why does it have to control?

It must be able to play music through speakers

It must be able to store MP3 player

It must be suitable to use in a home environment

Because this is where a teenager will typically use a MP3 Player Docking System

It must be suitable for teenagers

It must be attractive towards teenagers

So the TMG will find the product appealing and will use it

It must be of a affordable price

Teenagers do not have a high level of income, all their disposable income will be money given by their parents or money earned from a part time job, thus, the product must have a low price so the TMG will be able to purchase it

It must be within budget

Must be able to be used by all mp3's

3.5mm TRS jack

maximum 9 inch

Why?

Must be durable

Components

WIres

3.5mm jack, "Gold plated", Attracts people, attracts teenages

Speakers, Stereo/Mono, + and - wires

TRS

Very Common

Unbalanced Stereo, Tip - Left, Ring - Right, Sleeve - Ground

External power will/can act as an amplifier

Otherwise you wouldn't need external power at all if you were just able to plug&play

ALRIGHT GUYS, I DONT GET ALL THESE RANDOM !#%^*@ WE NEED. THIS IS SUPPOSED TO USE A STANDARD, SOMETHING EVERYTHING HAS. 3.5MM JACK.

DOES NOT NEED TO CHARGE

THIS ISN'T A 'CHARGER' AS SPECIFIED BY THE EXAM BOARD

NO PROPRIETARY CONNECTIONS

MP3 PLAYER AS A WHOLE., NO 30-PIN, NO BLACKBERRY CONNECTER, NO NOKIA CONNECTOR, why do we need ANY of these connectors? we're talking about an MP3 device here, not a phone?, ETC.

NO USB

SHOW ME A USB PORT ON SOMETHING THAT USES BATTERIES AND A MEMORY CARD ONLY., OR YOU'LL NEED A ZILLION ADAPTERS WTF.

NO BUTTONS. HOW ON EARTH DO YOU CONTROL SOMETHING VIA 3.5MM TRS JACK

EXCEPT VOLUME, BECAUSE THE VOLTAGE SUPPLIED TO THE SPEAKER CONTROLS THIS., THEREFORE THIS ISN'T RELATED TO WHATEVER'S CONNECTED.

THE TRRS IS USABLE, BUT IS UNCOMMON ON LOW-END/OLDER DEVICES, NOTE THAT EVEN IF TRRS IS USED, THE MP3 PLAYER MUST BE PROGRAMMED TO RECEIVE XYZ COMMAND FROM THE SIGNAL VIA TRRS THROUGH PUSHING BUTTONS

DONT SKIVE.
