  • Buying an iPod nano in Brazil costs nearly eleventeen zillion dollars

    The cheapest place to buy a 4GB iPod nano is Hong Kong ($148.12), while the most expensive place is Brazil ($369.61). Crazy stuff. Yup, Reuters went out of its way to compile a list of worldwide nano prices, using it as a sort of price index. Why? I don’t know. Something about tariffs, currency undervaluation, lolcatz. Here’s the top 10 most expensive 1. Brazil $369.61 2. Read More

  • Hands on with Horizon fuel cells


    Ready to power your iPod with clean, delicious hydrogen? I got a chance to see Horizon fuel cell technologies up close yesterday and I’m pleased to report that soon we all will be using our pent up atoms to power iPods, toy cars, and unmanned assault vehicles. Most of the cells are fairly bulky but they showed a small cell using a hydrogen canister the size of a AA battery that they… Read More

  • Zune 2: Don't immediately discount them

    Microsoft launched the Zune 2 family last night while I was dreaming about being a New York City police officer (that’s real, btw), to, nearest I can tell, nearly zero fanfare. (That’s what you get when you inform no one about its launch.) As much as I’d love to needlessly hate on the new Zunes, they’re not all bad. Sure, there’s no touch screen and they’re… Read More

  • Sweet Zune o' Mine: Where do we go, now, where do we go?

    So now the new Zunes are out and about, cool. They’re a big improvement to the original, which had been out less than a year. And while we’re supporters of the Zune and the Zune marketplace, there’s no doubt that the Zune still has a long way to go to catch up with Apple and the iPod line. While we now have two versions of Microsoft’s media player, Apple is filling out… Read More

  • Spyder Groove backpack review

    Backpacks are like shoes, you can never have too many of them. At least that’s my logic. Backpacks are one of those things that I always seem to keep buying not matter how many I have. But this time around I decided to pick up one that offered something special. There are a number of MP3 player specific bags with built-in speakers, but I’ve found that most of them sound like garbage. Read More

  • Dude complains too much, gets free stuff

    After getting three dodgy iMacs in a row, some guy decided to email¬†the big man himself: Steve Jobs. Obviously the CEO of a multimillion dollar hardware company has nothing better to do than sit in his basement and respond to random guys who feel that they are important enough to contact him, but I digress. He reached one of Steve’s minions who seemed extremely concerned about the… Read More

  • Apple Supports Breast Cancer Research With Pink iPod Shuffle

    I wasn’t aware that Apple was doing anything to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, but it doesn’t surprise me, though. The pink Shuffles have surfaced at Target stores across the country. This particular one was captured in Santa Maria, CA and includes a $15 iTunes store gift card, but it’s still $79! Anyone else seen a pink Shuffle at your local Target? We… Read More

  • ISP Shuts Down Hacker's Site After Apple's Lawyers Make A Fuss

    Apple’s rabid lawyers really need to take a chill pill. What’s the fuss over a guy wanting to download the code on a busted iPod Touch? He just wants to run 3rd party apps. “Martyn” was planning on downloading and publishing the code onto a secure area of his site so that he and other hackers could take it for a whirl, but before he was able to do so Apple came down on… Read More

  • Cy-Fi iPod Bicycle Speaker Announced

    This just does not seem like a good idea, but hey, to each his own. MyCyFi Inc. is betting its reputation that its Cy-Fi product will be a hit. It’s essentially a wireless speaker you strap on to your bike’s handlebars so you can listen to your iPod via a wireless transmitter. The speaker itself has all the standard iPod controls so you don’t have to fumble in your pocket… Read More

  • iPods Could Kill: Study

    If the world wasn’t already worried enough about electromagnetic radiation from cell phones, Apple now provides us with another source from which to fuel our anxieties, particularly if we’re old. According to a study presented by a 17-year-old high school student to a meeting of heart specialists on Thursday, iPods can cause pacemakers to malfunction and even fail by interfering… Read More
