Default Ubuntu merchandise: USB vase

I think that this is really neat:
http://shop.canonical.com/product_info.php?products_id=137

It is a USB-powered speaker system set in a vase. It claims that it
needs no drivers. Where can I find more information on audio-over-USB?
I did not realize that is a standard protocol (as the no drivers claim
suggests). Will my laptop (Dell Inspiron) mute this device when I plug
in the headphones? Can I route _some_ audio to this device and some
other audio to another device?

jazz had some speaker which I loved and you would just plug the usb. now my
secretary uses it on ubuntu 8.04, and when you plugin headphones it does cut
off the sound from the speakers.

I was routing sound on these in my windoze days, and it shouldn't be that
hard in ubuntu.

I found the vase here:
http://www.curiosite.com/scripts/product/enproduct.php?idproducto=77123233

And it seems to be Windows and Mac only! (naturally, I wrote asking
about Linux support)

Why not go to the Ubuntu shop and get the one for Ubuntu?
http://shop.canonical.com/index.php
It is under accessories

That is where I found it to begin with. While researching it I found
the Windows/Mac one. I wrote to the company just so that they will
know that there really do exist Ubuntu users who would buy their
products if they advertised Ubuntu support.
