  • The AudioFile: Audio Quality Cheapskates

    Last week I got a 16GB Creative Zen V Plus, the first flash-based MP3 player to move past the 8GB mark (aside from players with microSD card slots). And we’ll be seeing a 16GB iPod nano before the holidays. Aside from simply holding more songs, more flash means those tiny players can hold bigger and better-sounding digital files, which is right on time for the glut of DRM-free… Read More

  • The AudioFile: Can Apple Afford to Slacker?


    Radio gives you two important things: It keeps you from getting in a musical rut, and you don’t have to make any decisions about what to listen to next. Now that customizable Internet radio services like Last.fm and Slacker are all the rage, the time has never been better for Apple to let iPod users get a piece of the action.

  • Multi-Touch Technology And Where It's Going Next…Oh And Apple Didn't Invent It Either!


    Like everyone else who listened to Jobs’ keynote last week, I was tickled pink to see the touch screen iPod finally be released. And I almost wet myself and shrieked with glee like a little school girl when Stevie boy announced the touch-screen iPod combined with the highly rumored iPhone. Just ask my co-workers because they thought I was having some sort of seizure or joygasm. I was… Read More

  • iPhone Is Too Cool For School

    While I was exploring MacWorld 2007 in San Francisco, I finally ventured into a little area where the iPhone slumbered in its own little case. After fighting through the crowd of golems and hobbits to get closer to the phone, I finally got to take some close up shots of the sexiest cell phone I’ve ever seen. Everything on the iPhone looks top notch, but can anyone say smudge/scratch central? Read More
