CES 2008: Parrot SK4000 Motorcycle helmet wireless audio solution

Check out this nifty little gadget from Parrot! It connects to just about any helmet because it has some pretty flexible mounting options. On the outside you have the mic and the majority of the hardware and then they were ingenious enough to move the speakers to the inside of the helmet and they give you several different options mounting that on the inside of your helmet.


CES 2008: sonoro CD/iPod clock-radio

Part of sonoro’s assault on your bedside table, the frustratingly-lower-case cubo is a clock/radio, CD player and iPod dock which can play back your mp3s as well as recharge your Apple PMP.


Iona Cube WiFi radio with simple presets

There’s certainly such a thing as too much choice, and internet radio stations are just one such example – worst thing is, if you neglect to set your new-found favourite as a preset, it’ll take ages to find it again.  That’s just such the issue Cambridge Consultants set out to solve with their Iona ‘Cube’ WiFi radio; unlike other options, which pride themselves on having shed-loads of functionality but seem to forget that people actually just want to turn them on and get on with listening to audio, it eschews standard controls in favour of four presets, each selected by rotating the Cube onto different sides.



Shenzhen Suno Technology MA-216 PMP

This PMP from Shenzhen Suno Technology looks pretty good compared to most of the rather boxy media players we see these days. It will play AVI, WMV, MP3, and WMA (with lyric display) as well as display various picture formats.


Philips Streamium Wireless Music makes taking your music with you around the house a breeze

So you fill your house with these Streamium units, and each one can connect an iPod, USB flash drive, play CD’s, FM radio, or connect to your computer and stream music. Oh, and each one has an 80GB hard drive that you can rip CD’s to and stuff like that.


Aerielle i2i Stream splits music sources wirelessly

In what is quite possibly the worlds dumbest idea, Aerielle, the company that makes FM transmitters for the likes of Kensington, iRiver, and SanDisk, has released the i2i Stream. Why is it the dumbest idea ever you might ask, well I’ll tell you, it’s a pair of devices that wirelessly stream music from one to the other, but require a charged battery and headphones and have a maximum range of 30 ft.


PSP getting Internet radio from SHOUTcast

It appears as though the PSP is getting internet radio sometime soon with the next firmware upgrade. Along with that the upgrade includes better support the OPML and pictures in RSS feeds.


Slacker Mobile prototypes buggy, but cool

Walt Mossberg, the prophet of all other tech journalists, likes the Slacker Mobile, provided they fix all the bugs. For those not in the know, its basically internet radio on the go with the ability to customize and store the streams.


Design Town Vintage Style Radio looks old

It has a handle on top, like the ones that used to come on your lunchbox, and it has a telescopic antenna. To make matters worse, it only plays AM/FM radio, seriously, who listens to that crap anymore?


Roberts Radio launches WiFi Internet Radio/Media Player

I love WiFi radios, I have never used one (except on my PC, never a standalone unit though), but I love the concept, and this latest success from Roberts Radio is no exception with its sleek, basic appearance and WiFi functionality. You can even plug in your MP3 player to this radio.


pocketDevice Mphone Radio Number One Special Edition

That’s the distributors name, manufacturers name, and then the last 5 are the actual product name, in the title. What a mouthful, anyways, its an Italian device, and it’s a different look at a similar idea.

Basically they took and built a decent MP3 player, and then added the GSM phone functionality, instead of the general way of thought where they build a decent phone and then add an MP3 player function to it. Its very basic too, it weighs 60 grams, has an MP3 player, Phone, USB, Bluetooth FM Radio, Voice Recorder, and a 1GB microSD card that comes with it.


Creative Zen Stone Plus giving Apple even more troubles

So first, the Zen Stone came out from Creative, and the fact that it wasn’t an Apple product, combined with the fact that it was the same size, with similar functionality as the Shuffle, and it was slightly cheaper, well that was enough to help the original model sell a good number of units. Well now it appears Creative is besting Apple’s Shuffle in more areas than price.

In fact they are fixing one of the few flaws of the shuffle, the lack of a screen for navigational purposes. Then they are upping the storage to iPod Nano levels with 4GB for the Zen Stone Plus.
