One of the catches to the service was that officially you needed to be on a wired connection to play.

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on October 29th, 2009

ASUS WiFi, 3G and WiMAX ebook readers confirmed for March 2010We had heard that Asus was planning some ebook readers and now some new details have emerged. Executives from the company apparently confirmed that WiFi, 3G and WiMAX versions will be announced before the year is out. The ebook readers will apparently hit carrier partners in the US and Europe in March 2010, with prices that will be “competitive” with what’s offered from Amazon and Sony.

Previous rumors have ASUS readying two different sized readers, one with a 6-inch e-ink display while a second model will have a larger 9-inch panel. WiMax seems like overkill, but Asus apparently thinks it will sell well.

Withings WiFi Body Scale sends your weight to your iPhone

Posted in Exercise Gadgets by Conner Flynn on July 27th, 2009

Withings WiFi Body Scale sends your weight to your iPhoneThe Withings scale has a sleek and stylish look along with WiFi functionality. The latter will beam your weight and body fat measurements to a web dashboard that can be accessed using a free iPhone app. This way you can track your measurements to help motivate yourself.

It even has “ideal” values that you can try to live up to. Somehow, we think that if you are not motivated enough get fit without this thing, than this isn’t going to do much except get you down. And at $183, it’s hard to get motivated to even buy this.

The remote will navigate both internet radio and local streaming content, with twin 8W stereo speakers and both line-in/line-out connections for plugging in a PMP and headphones.

Posted in iPod,Wi-Fi by Darrin Olson on April 14th, 2007

WiFi iPodAccording to a recent report from DigiTimes, Apple has plans to launch a WiFi enabled iPod that could be available to ship by Q3 of this year.

The report states that as soon as this month Universal Scientific Industrial (USI) will be shipping the components that will make the WiFi capabilities possible to Foxconn, who will then assemble the new device. Foxconn would then have enough of the devices assembled and ready to go by the 3rd quarter of this year, which would mean that these new WiFi iPods would be ready to go in plenty of time for the holiday rush.

This seems to makes sense for Apple to do in order to stay competitive with the Zune and its WiFi capabilities. There has also been rumors that Sony and Samsung are preparing a WiFi enabled DAP, and Sandisk has already shown offer a similar device. One …

Apple released the new Airport Extreme Base Station with 802.11nAlthough greatly overshadowed by recent releases of the Apple TV and the iPhone, the new Apple Airport Extreme Base Station was also recently released by Apple and probably deserves a little more recognition than it’s gotten so far.

The new Airport Extreme is an upgrade from the previous version in multiple ways. The design changed to a square look, similar to that of a mini-Mac or the new Apple TV, with small dimensions of only 1.3 inches high and 6.5 inches square. The wireless capabilities are the other major upgrade which now covers the new 802.11n standard, but is still backwards compatible with the 802.11b and 802.11g technologies.
