MusicPal wireless internet radio

Let’s face it, Terrestrial radio is nearly dead. That means it’s time to replace that old AM/FM device that you have. The MusicPal wireless Internet radio and MP3 player looks like a good choice. It also has some advantages over other wireless radio devices. For one thing, it’s smaller then many of it’s competitors, no extra hardware is required and it doesn’t require a computer to operate either. It even goes so far as to display some of your favorite RSS feeds.

The Musicpal comes programmed with a library of more than 5,000 Internet radio stations, but if you still like your MP3s, it can stream them directly from a home network. Did I mention that it also has an alarm clock? At $150 you get your money’s worth.

Convert cassettes to MP3 with plusdeckEX

Posted in MP3,music,USB by Conner Flynn on October 25th, 2007

Convert cassettes to MP3 with plusdeckEXWe all love music. Some of us so much so that we hold on to old media long after it’s time has passed. Take that box of old cassettes you have stashed in the closet, for example. You know who you are. Problem is, tapes degrade over time. Eventually, you either have to buy it anew on more recent media, or convert it somehow.

Enter the plusdeckEX. It mates with your PC via USB and the result is beautiful digital music. A 7.1 channel built-in sound card converts the analog signal from the cassette tape into a digital file format like MP3. It’s just that easy.

Holy mp3 player for soul saving sound

The “Cross MP3 Player,” comes in 3 different memory sizes.If you have ever wanted to combine your faith with technology, then you might want to look into what Chinese wholesaler, Chinavision has up their religious sleeve. The “Cross MP3 Player,” comes in 3 different memory sizes. 1GB, 2GB and 4GB from $22.47 to $48.14.

Priests everywhere now have a piece of technology that doesn’t have sin written all over it. Think about it. If you pull one of these things out during a sermon, your cool factor goes up accordingly. Plus, it makes the word you are preaching so much cooler. Let’s face it, you have to convert the youth. Not just religion-wise, but away from those products that depict that Apple with the bite taken out of it. (It was Eve’s fault.)

Posted in Media Players,MP3,music by Matt on October 2nd, 2007

4GB mini MP3 playerMusic players are evolving slowly but surely adding features here or there, miniturizing etc. This particularly small MP3 player has a good feature set for what it is. For musicians, this device would work perfectly as a scratch pad during the writing process with its built in voice recorder to name just one of the interesting features.

The 2 tone LCD is adequate for its purpose and the navigation screen is simple. The player includes a built in speaker for when you’d rather not be wearing headphones, and hosts a 7 mode EQ to adjust the output of your WMA or MP3 files and the WAV files recorded via the built in voice recorder.

USB Flash Card MP3 Player is about the size of a credit cardThis super-thin USB Flash Card MP3 player from Brando is about the size of a credit card or just slightly larger at 85.5 x 54 x 4.5 mm and can house 2GB of listening media. It can also work as mass storage (if you call 2GB mass storage anymore) by connecting via USB to your computer.

The device can play MP3 or WMA files and has buttons that are flush with the frame that control navigating the songs. It also has a red LED light that lets you know the internal battery is charged and the player is on. You can even make a special request to have your own graphics put on the player, making it a nice “business card” MP3 player to give away to clients and customers.

Meizu M7 touch screen miniPlayer

Miezu M7 miniplayer
Illustrated right is a render of the Meizu M7 touch screen miniPlayer geared to compete directly with iPod Touch. The media player is targeted for a March 2008 release with a price tag that could draw business away from Apple for all but the most die-hard iPod users. The tentatively named M7 will sport a 2.8 inch touch screen with a 16:9 480×228 resolution and supports H.264 playback. At $100, $110 and $150 for 2GB, 4GB and 8GB models respectively, the M7 is likely to be a very popular iPod clone.

While a cheaper alternative to the Apple iPod MP3 player, its lower price likely indicates this Chinese manufactured Miezu clone will lack the quality and attention to detail that the Apple players have become known for. The design concept has only recently and hurriedly been announced so stay tuned for any updates.

Zicplay Microkey MP3 Player May Be Smallest Ever

Posted in Media Players,MP3 by Darrin Olson on September 14th, 2007

Zicplay Microkey MP3 player is one of the smallest MP3 players yetZicplay touted this player at the IFA in Berlin as the smallest MP3 player currently available, measuring just 43mm long, 15mm wide and weighing 18 grams. It appears to have a very simple interface consisting of a couple buttons on the front that control moving tracks forward and back and also controls the volume.

The Microkey supports playback of MP3 and WMA files giving up to 6 hours of listening time on a single charge of the battery. It also connects to your PC via USB 2.0 for transferring files and reportedly has “touch screen interface capabilities”, although we’re not sure how that comes into play.

There was no pricing or dates of availability yet, but you can watch the Zicplay site for more info and we’ll let you know when we hear more.

Also thrown in is voice recording, eight equalizer presets and a built-in FM radio.

Of course there’s no Bluetooth support (all your uploading is done via USB) but for this economical price point you shouldn’t care.

Sony Rolly will dance with the musicSony has lifted the veil of secrecy surrounding its musical robotic egg, the Rolly, that we first reported to you a week ago. The 300 gram gizmo is a moving MP3 player that is motion sensitive; give it a spin in one direction and the Rolly’s volume will go up, the other way and the tunes will lower down. Pushing the Rolly forwards, backwards or giving it a shake will allow you to change songs. While it’s moving about the side corners of it will “flap” and a cascade of pretty blue and green lights will undulate from the bottom of the Rolly.
