Cherry Picks 2008: Gibson Robot Guitar

To tune it, automatically, obviously, because why would you buy this to tune it yourself, you select A440 tuning or there are 5 other presets.

HANNSpree XV GT LCD TV – budget range digital TVs

How digital are they? They come with a built in DVB-T tuner, this thing is so ready for the switch.

However, if you live in the UK and want to get a new TV that prepares you for the switch, but you don’t have coverage of the digital signal yet, its ok, this TV still has an analog tuner too. The DVB-T tuner will support all the freeview channels, and you can go into interactive mode too, but no Freeview Playback support.

Hitachi UT Series LCD TVs – Thin and light, but full of features

Hitachi UT Series LCD TVs – Thin and light, but full of features

You don’t believe its thin and light? Well peep this, its 35mm thick, that’s a number, then for the lightness, look at the runway model carrying one and stopping to pose after strutting out with the screen in hand.

I am pretty sure a good sign of something being light is how easily a runway model can carry eat and still look good. Part of the reason its so light is because they’ve separated the actual screen, and all the other junk that usually comes built into back/side of the TVs.

Roberts Radio Robi

Roberts Radio Robi

Those probably aren’t the three R’s your parents told you to learn in school, but they are the three R’s that bring you digital radio for your iPod. It also acts as a remote for the iPod, allowing you to control the iPod using this in-line device.

And, like I said, you can listen to DAB radio with it. One of these days we might see something like DAB stateside, but somehow I doubt it.

Nintendo Japan dropping 1Seg tuner for DS Lite

It has dual antennas and catches 1Seg signals. The video will be viewable on the top screen with the controls being on the bottom one.

No word on whether it will support the programming guide info that is built into the 1Seg signals or not. But hey, they are just doing what the PSP already can, which is ok, because the DS has a better implementation of it.

Sharp SH-920 Aquos cell phone

Who would have ever thought that a cell phone would ever have a better screen than my TV? Well it’s happened, and I feel the urge to go into early retirement/hiding now.

This cell phone has a 3.2 inch screen with a resolution of 480x854, a contrast ratio of 2000:1, and support for up to 26 million colors. Oh yeah, there is also the standard widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio.
