Pinnacle PVR USB Key

This is a tiny little TV tuner with a PVR software that is only available n the UK. It records television in MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and DivX formats. It sells for about $100. Too bad the PVR software wasn’t preloaded in the USB key, but it’s still a great idea to be able to plug this to a laptop.

iRiver G10’s gaming console.

We have all heard about the iRiver brand about it’s low cost MP3 players, before iPod’s were even popular. Now, iRiver has just launched something that has given the suprise to us. The iRiver G10 has a 4 inch, 260k color LCD, with the support of both a gaming console and a media player. It seems similar to Sony PSP’s, but the G10 runs on Windows Mobile 5.0 and includes WiBro networking for online game play. Only 2 game titles so far on that gaming platform and it is unsure if any developers would be interested to support the device. It would be scheduled to be released in August for the Korean market.

Thomas Pink’s iPod tie

This is a very nifty gadget from the Thomas Pink collection. This bright pink silk tie has a hidden pocket on the back, that fits an iPod nano perfectly and includes an extra loop to keep the headphone wires neat.

Lenovo launches budget PC line in the US

Lenovo has launched its Lenovo-branded laptops and desktops to target small businesses and sell at significantly lower than the company’s IBM labeled products. The desktops will start at $349 and the laptops will sell for $500. This isn’t really a good way on earning a good profit as anything that runs on budget spells small revenue. That’s probably why IBM stopped doing that in years.
