Einstein Sound Master Photon Ball iPod Dock

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on July 1st, 2009

Einstein Sound Master Photon Ball iPod DockLooking for an iPod dock for your mad science lab? The Einstein Sound Master Photon Ball iPod Dock sounds pretty impressive, but in reality it’s just one of those fancy electro-static orbs attached to a dock. Which is cool, don’t get us wrong, but it’s also kind of too much. The colored ball pulsates and flashes to the beat of the music.

It also changes colors and looks all pretty-like. Just sit your iPod in the dock, and think about what it would look like if it had hair electro-rocked by this orb. Some other features are a clock with an alarm, AM/FM radio tuner and more.

Pill MP3 player to be produced later this year

Posted in MP3 by Conner Flynn on May 26th, 2009

Pill MP3 player to be produced later this yearWe’ve seen some crazy pill shaped concepts as well as actual pill shaped products, but this may be the strangest. An MP3 player/pill that is actually going into production later this year. You should see it by years end.

It’s for those who love pharmaceuticals a little too much. Which is half of America, so they likely will have a hit on their hands. At this point in our culture, if it even resembles a pill, people will want it. And this pill has no side effects like numbness in the limbs, stroke or even death. It measures 2.7 inches long and is about an inch in diameter. It pulls apart to unveil the controls, allowing you to twist forward and back to skip tracks.

Sony considers music downloads for PSP

Posted in PSP by Conner Flynn on May 21st, 2009

50 million PSPs sold worldwideCNET has word that Sony’s been talking to some of the big recording labels about putting their music on the PlayStation Network for download, specifically for the PSP. It makes sense. The service already has a growing library of movies and TV shows. It’s just lacking music.

And since Sony is one of the four largest music companies in the world, they should be able to provide a few good artists. It resides in rumor territory for now, but we’d be real surprised if this didn’t happen. The PSP has never really lived up to it’s potential. This could help.

Alhambra Internet Radio

Alhambra Internet RadioThe Alhambra Wi-Fi Internet Radio merges both old and new styles together in an interesting way. This wireless Internet radio receiver will stream your favorite tunes to just about anywhere in your home, assuming you don’t live in a super huge mansion of course.

It’s got an old style interface that some will love while others will hate, but it will blend into any home design-wise and hey, we’ve seen much worse.

Atree J2 PMP

Posted in Portable Meda Players by Conner Flynn on May 12th, 2009

Atree J2 PMPLike a primitive Terminator, the Atree J2 portable media player from Korea sports a glowing red eye and possible plans of human extinction. The Terminator eye is used to navigate through the system’s menu, sort of like the iPod’s scroll wheel.

All of the popular video and audio file formats are supported, and the J2 features a TFT display at 320 x 240 resolution, 5.1 virtual surround sound mode, integrated FM tuner and a Korean-to-English dictionary. Internal memory will be expanded by a microSD memory card slot.

Sony Rolly discontinued

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on May 6th, 2009

Sony Rolly gets Bluetooth, more memoryWe wish we could say that this came as a surprise, but nope, we kinda figured that the little Rolly was on The way out. The Sony Rolly has been discontinued in the U.S. The good news is if you are located near a SonyStyle store, go check it out to see if they have them in stock. Thy are having a fire sale with a price of $99. That’s $300 off the original price.

Again, this is no big surprise. The Rolly was a $400 dancing egg. You do the math. But we can’t help wondering what Sony will dream up next to take its place. Maybe a little dancing and hopping cube. Think Rubik’s cube meets Disco.

iPod FM Transmitter

Posted in iPod by Conner Flynn on April 30th, 2009

iPod FM TransmitterOne of the problems with the iPod is the lack of an FM transmitter, though there are dozens of iPod FM transmitters available from third party accessories manufacturers.

This device allows you to stream your iPod or iPhone music to any FM radio within a 10 meter radius, and with digital PLL it enables the reception to remain crystal clear even under extreme conditions. All you have to do is plug it in.

Hands on: SanDisk slotRadio

Posted in Review by Conner Flynn on April 13th, 2009

Sansa slotRadio comes with 1,000 songsWe checked out Sandisk’s new slotRadio recently. As a refresher, this player comes with a microSD memory card slot so you can have your choice of pre-loaded music. The idea is that you can get it pre-loaded with Billboard hits cards that hold more than 1,000 tracks and buy other similar cards.

Did we like it? Did we hate it? Is it filled with useless songs that are all played out? You’re about to find out.

Amazon also uses variable pricing

Posted in Amazon by Conner Flynn on April 8th, 2009

itunesprice-sbIf you thought you could count on Amazon keeping the price of their MP3s under the $1 price point after Apple introduced variable pricing to their tunes, think again. And disregard the comparison above. Sorry to dash your hopes and pour salt in your music-loving wounds, but Amazon has decided to go the same route.

They meet the $1.29 price point on iTunes, at least where tracks by popular artists are concerned. Walmart however, throws all caution to the wind and rolls back the price to $1.24 for selected titles. If you like songs that nobody else likes you’ll pay $0.79 and $0.64 on Amazon and Walmart.

Ribbit MP3 player from Toys R Us

Posted in MP3 by Conner Flynn on April 5th, 2009

Ribbit MP3 player from Toys R UsWell, this is certainly the strangest MP3 player we’ve seen this week. Too bad they didn’t go all Kermit the Frog with this guy. They may have actually sold more. The Toys R Us ‘Ribbit’ MP3 player comes with five play modes (normal, repeat one, repeat all, folder, repeat folder). And an eight-mode equalizer.(normal, rock, pop, classical, bass, jazz, soft, and SRS WOW)

It also sports a high-speed USB 2.0 interface, play-list function, and support for seven languages. A built-in rechargeable Lithium Ion battery is the power source. Not bugs. You’ll get up to six hours of continuous playback with a fully charged battery.

Schimmel “Ferrari” piano

Posted in Musical Instruments by Conner Flynn on April 5th, 2009

Schimmel "Ferrari" pianoUp until recently, Pianos hadn’t really changed very much. Ever. But lately Schimmel has taken the piano and evolved it in great quantum leaps. Like the Pegasus grand piano for instance. This particular incarnation pictured above makes it look like the piano will take off and take you for a wild ride.

It’s dubbed the Schimmel Pegasus Guoqin. It sports the Ferrari Rosso Red finish and styling, only missing the horse logo. I guess it isn’t officially endorsed. The price is $410,000. Which means, if you can afford this, you likely already own a Ferrari.
