  • KanaSD Digital Audio Player: Bring Your Own Storage Cards

    This KanaSD DAP from Green House Japan follows the “B.Y.O.S.” mantra—bring your own storage. As the name implies, it uses SD cards as its storage medium, with no hard drive—flash or otherwise—to speak of.

  • MusicGiants: WMA Lossless Music, DRM-Free

  • Brando MP4 Watch


    This big and clunky watch from Brando is actually capable of playing MP3s and WMV or MP4 video. It has 1GB of on-board memory and a 128 x 128 pixel screen capable of displaying 65k colors. There is also a built in mic for voice recording. I can’t wear watches because they make me feel claustrophobic (the world is closing in!—on my wrist), but if you’re in the market for a… Read More
