Panasonic have announced pricing and availability for their portable Blu-ray player, the DMP-B15. Complete with an 8.9-inch WSVGA LCD, HDMI output and BD Live support, the DMP-B15 also features Panasonic's VIERA CAST internet access via an ethernet port; that means, as on the company's standalone Blu-ray decks, you can access Amazon Video-on-Demand, YouTube, Picasa, Bloomberg and other online information.
Sometimes portable speakers just aren't all that attractive, but that's not something you'll need to worry about with the Chill Pill portable speakers from Koyono. These speakers were designed to complement Apple iPods and iPhones and possess a unique form factor sure to attract attention.
I wish I was a DJ. Or at least, I wish I was talented enough to use the Tonium Pacemaker Pocket DJ effectively. I play drums but I can't mix beats, so I had to call in reinforcements. My good friend DJ T.A.I. offered to help out with taking a look at the Pacemaker, and he was able to throw together a short demo for us in the very short amount of time he had the device.
I'll admit, I had no idea what I was getting into when I opened up the Pacemaker. The functionality and the features of the device are astounding. The Pacemaker Pocket DJ system is a 60 GB portable turntable and mixer that allows you to store your music, beats, and mixes on the internal storage, and spin your music on the go. The Pacemaker features the ability to play two tracks side by side, allowing fading and mixing between the two tracks. Cross fading and mixing is an easy task since you can select any two tracks on the device and have one playing while the other is cued up. Whatever track is active will play through the speakers, while you can have the preview of the cued track playing through the headphones.
