Now an underwater MP3 player

MP3 players go underwater. And with all new sound technology. The Finis SwiMP3 is an underwater digital audio player. The pioneering bone conduction technology has been used by this system that helps sound to travel from the cheek bone to the ear. Sounds really innovative? So it is. The clarity one gets through the Finis SwiMP3 is much better then any other underwater MP3 player which gives a muffled sound underwater. The system comes with a 128MB memory to ensure you have enough music down there. The product does not work too well in deep waters. So its going to be a hit with the lappers may be the divers have to wait a little bit more. It would be out for sale at $180.

AMAZON to tie up with Music Companies

The success of the Amazon would be advanced multifold if its talks with four global music companies materialize. The Amazon brand audio players would be the device to listen to the music that comes out of this contract. In doing so Amazon would be setting up shop with their own iTunes Music Store competitors. The plan is to bring the tracks on the device preloaded. The subscription to this device would bring a lot of customers to Amazon and a discount on other CDs to the subscribers may be in the deal.


Alladin’s Dream Security Device

This may be the latest in security system, but its effectiveness is being questioned. The Alladin Biodynamic reader is based on the body’s ‘BioDynamic Signature’ comprising of the heart beat and other ‘intrinsic human electro-biometric dynamic signals’. It sounds very innovative as it has used something not conceived before. By placing the fingertip to the system it checks the heart beat and the fingerprints. This combination sounds difficult to break and so its crack seems to be difficult. It sounds as an ambitious product and its practical use is yet to be seen in the market. Hope this proves to be that foolproof gadget.

Forget iPod nano, get a new W950i Walkman Phone

Now we’ve got it straight from Sony Ericsson that the W950i Walkman is indeed for real and is indeed sporting 4GB of sweet sweet flash memory. We’re not so sure about this whole “Mystic Purple” color scheme they’ve got going, but there’s a lot else to love, including UMTS, tri-band GSM, a rather large QVGA screen, and a 0.6-inch thickness. The Symbian OS phone also has Opera 8, Macromedia Flash Lite, video playback support, and a built-in FM radio to augment the standard Walkman MP3/AAC capability. We’ll have to try the smooth keypad before we pass final judgment, but while sexy looking, it doesn’t seem like it’ll make one-handed texting any easier.
