The Pill iPod Nano 6G dock medicates your media needs

There's a way to turn any device into the masterpiece you always though it should be, and in no greater environment is this true than with the iOS suite of devices - quite evident here with The Pill for the 6th generation of iPod Nano. You've got your little display-toting machine plugged in to the middle of this pill, the pill itself being a stark red and white on either side, the speakers for the sound you'll be blasting eschewing forth from either side with skill. This look like the key for the beat junkie in you?

Nokia 3-inch buttonless wonder tipped for CES 2012 event

Nokia 3-inch buttonless wonder tipped for CES 2012 event

Get your salt out, ladies and gentlemen, because although this device may well be a real-deal object set for the 2012 event already set in place by Nokia for CES, it's also only appearing in a single photo which very well could have been doctored to look like an attempt by Mr Blurrycam at capturing a unique glace for himself. The story that goes along with the image you're about to see is that someone at Boored@Work got Nokia's Chris Weber to show off a piece of the "Amazing Everyday" event early: this piece being a business card sized device made by Nokia and set to bust apart the idea that your smartphone is the only device you need.

Google X glasses tipped, Android running Terminator-like tech

Google X glasses tipped, Android running Terminator-like tech

When it comes to futuristic projects coming out of the labs at such titanic companies as Apple and Google, there's no shortage of interest in even the smallest project, the simplest notion of a project - what we're hearing today is that there's not just a tiny project popping up in the mysterious off-campus lair known as Google X, there's a whole set of glasses. While Apple has been tipped just earlier today as working on a wrist set bangle / watch sort of iPod device that may well be a Siri-controlled peripheral, this Google project is set to be a standalone device which connects to the web with mobile data, displaying then the information you want to see in the lenses of the glasses as they sit on your face. Scanning, scanning, match found!

Would the tech world be the same without Apple?

Would the tech world be the same without Apple?

Each time I pick up my iPhone, listen to songs on my iPod, or surf the web on my Mac, I think about the mark Apple has left on the technology industry. It’s amazing to me that a single company has been able to do so much in such a short amount of time. And it’s perhaps most amazing that no other company has even come close in many of the markets the iPhone maker competes in to matching it.

When I get thinking about that, I ask myself a simple, but not so solvable question: would the technology world be the same if Apple didn’t exist?

XtremeMac Tango TRX Review

XtremeMac Tango TRX Review

The iPod dock by the name of XtremeMac Tango TRX has been out for some time now, having been first announced all the way back in 2010, but it's no worse for wear with the 2011 holiday season rapidly approaching, and since we've never had a look at it before and there's a brand new bit of functionality now with Google Music out of beta, let's have a look, shall we? This device comes with several parts - first being the main speaker complete with iPod dock which can house anything from the tiniest iPod to the iPad 2, though I wouldn't recommend the latter as it does block a bit of the sound blast and isn't exactly held the most securely in place. Then there's the bit that makes this whole thing unique: the second docking station, one that allows you to charge the device on one side of the house while the speaker jams music out at the other.
