  • Obscure Atree J2 PMP dazzles with copious amounts of mediocrity.
    by Mike

    Take a gander at your local mp3 player/PMP department at your local best buy and you will see every type of style of player you can think of under the sun, all under one roof. While there are a ton of players to choose from, there really isn’t that much differentiation between the various models. You could in fact say the MP3/PMP player market is saturated.

  • HDMI goes on a diet, slims down to HDMI “Type D”
    by Mike
    Posted May 8th, 2009 at 5:44 am
    HDMI is to many HD aficionados the golden standard for all digital devices to adopt. Moving on to mobile devices, the push for HD content is quickly growing meaning ports dedicated to this higher quality content need to be integrated into each device. Even though HDMI is “small” already, (compared to older tech such as VGA cables), it still is pretty big and bulky to implement into a tiny cellphone. That is where Molex’s tiny HDMI Type D connector comes into play. Roughly the same size as …

    Riding a bike in the world we live in today, with higher gas prices and the ever increasingly popular green movement, is becoming more and more the method of transportation for many individuals.  Naturally, taking a bike takes longer, meaning you need something to pass the time on your way to work, school, or play.  While you can obviously use any mp3 or CD player, the danger in that is that if you’re really in your own little world blaring away to your tracks of choice, a Mack Truck could…

    So USB 3.0 controllers and hardware won’t be available for at least another year, that isn’t going to stop the forward thinking techno freak that could be you!  Such trivial problems such as no software or secondary hardware to support a different piece of hardware is going to set back the true electronic guru.  No sir.  For those individuals, USB fever has your back.  They are  selling 2 meter long USB 3.0 cables for $9.99.  We all know that USB 3.0 is much faster than USB 2.0, ten t…

    Physical media formats sadly aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.  With the crowning of an HD format champ, Blue-ray, it appears as if physical media isn’t going to go down without a fight.  For the time being, pass the time in your car, watching a movie – a Blu-ray movie.  Panasonic is bringing the worlds first next-gen now current gen physical format, as well pleasing digital only folks by way of  two new head units, the CN-HX3000D Windows-powered unit, and the CY-BB1000D in-car Blu-r…
  • “Zune HD” rumors/information heat up.

    Posted April 15th, 2009 at 6:57 pm
    While the Zune has enjoyed so far a reign of mediocrity, Microsoft is looking to change things up a bit and bring the superbly average device up to 2007 specs.  While I have some pretty thick criticism flying forward from the start, I am pretty excited to see the Zune HD or whatever Microsoft decides to name this thing.  So far the funning list of more or less “known” facts according to Neowin looks like this:  3.6″ (give or take a few tenths) OLED touchscreen Nvidia Tegra inside …

    It seems as if here in America we get the truly unique, innovative, and downright gorgeous looking tech last (or at least not first) all of the time.  Based on the intro sentense if you were figuring I was going to follow it with a more upbeat and inspiring sentence, I’m sorry to inform you this is not the case.  In the picture above we see a very slick looking PMP by Cowon, the S9, which the company has finally released in a 32GB version.  Said features a 3.3-inch AMOLED screen with fi…
  • A world without YouTube?
    by Mike
    Posted April 9th, 2009 at 8:18 am
    When one thinks of an “over night success” or a company or product that has become so big, so ingrained in our everyday lives that it begins to be used as a verb, you almost take for granted said service.  The service I’m talking about is YouTube.  While it has only been around a few short years,  YouTube has gone from a niche site on the web to an online video powerhouse with millions upon million of users and videos.  What would happen if all of a sudden that resource was gone?
