My mom's always been very active. She visits the nearby park often to walk a few laps. Heck, she can outwalk me any day of the week. That's why, this Mother's Day, I've decided to gift her with an Apple iPod Nano loaded with her favorite Golden Oldy tunes to help add a bounce to her steps. This Apple iPod Nano 6th Generation Silver (16 GB) MP3 Player can be easily clipped to her... more
Apple never fails to take each iPod up a few notches with each new design. The newest generation of the iPod Nano is smaller and lighter than ever, and features a Multi-Touch display that lets you tap to play anything you want to hear. It has a new built-in clip so you can clip it to your sleeve, jacket, or running shorts. The Shake to Shuffle feature lets you shake the player to shuffle... more
You'd be hardpressed to walk on campus and not find someone walking around with the trademark white earbuds attached to an iPod. An Apple iPod Nano is never a poor choice for a gift, especially for a college student. Available in a variety of colors and flash storage sizes, the Nano features a two-inch LCD screen with a blue-white LED backlight and 320-by-240-pixel resolution. Aside from music, the device even lets you play games... more
Perfect for the college-bound student, the Juicy Couture 'Toile' MP3 Alarm Clock will add a touch of elegance to her dorm room. The pretty pink alarm clock features a feminine toile design, and an MP3 dock so she can play all of her favorite tunes while getting ready for class. It also comes equipped with a snooze button, which we have a feeling will get plenty of use every morning.
In addition to laptops and cold hard cash, you just cant miss by giving an iPod as a graduation present (or for any kind of present for that matter). The Apple iPod touch 64 GB is an all-in-one MP3 player, game player, and pocket computer. Its 64 GB capacity can hold up to 14,000 songs, 90,000 photos, or 80 hours of video. When fully charged, it offers up to 30 hours of music playback... more
Having your favorite tunes on hand is essential when running, but the extra weight of a bulky MP3 player can be a nuisance. The new iPod shuffle is even smaller than the previous generation and offers a new VoiceOver feature that tells you the name of the artist and song that is playing. It comes with 4GB of storage so that you can sing along with up to 1,000 of your favorite songs when... more
You may not think of Microsoft when you think portable music, but the Microsoft Zune MP3 player rates number one in best hard drive MP3 players on CNET's top-five list. The review rates the Zune as "Excellent" based on its "friendly interface, exceptional navigation control, audio- and video-podcast support, superlative FM radio, wireless syncing, good audio quality." The Zune is small, but it can make a big difference on a long commute home, or... more
It's easy to drop a lot of money on an MP3 player, but you can still get good sound quality, features, and appealing design for less than a third of the cost of more expensive versions with the SanDisk Sansa Fuze. CNET rated the sleek Sansa Fuze four out of five stars and called it "a great value." It's a solid choice if you're not ready to ante up for the Apple iPod.
In the So Cute We Can't Stand It department, check out this tiny Mickey Mouse-shaped MP3 player. The size of a marble, the iRiver Mplayer is a 1GB music player that comes with headphones on a lanyard, so you can wear the player as a pendant. Control the volume with Mickey's left ear, skip tracks with his right ear, and twist both ears at the same time to go into shuffle mode. There's no... more
It's not often someone outdoes Apple when it comes to MP3 player design, but Samsung has taken the iPod Shuffle idea - an MP3 player that holds 1GB of music, has no display or FM radio, is easy to use, and is perfect for exercise - and improved upon the design. The sleek, round Samsung S2 Pebble fits in your palm, comes in 5 cool colors, and can be worn like a pendant... more
If we had hours of home movies, thousands of MP3s, or tens of thousands of digital photos, we'd carry them around on the Archos Gmini 402 and we'd never be bored again. This little gizmo weighs less than 7 ounces, supports DRM-protected media, and syncs up with Window Media Player. It even comes with some free games. More Archos MP3 players.
Apple's iPod Classichas 120GB of storage. So does the new third generation Microsoft Zune. (120GB is enough space for approximately 30,000 songs, 25,000 photos, or 375 hours or video.) Both the iPod Classic and the 120GB Zune sell for about $250. So what's the difference? The Zune's a little bigger in actual size, for one, but it has a better screen for watching videos than the iPod. The iPod has better battery life,... more
Introducing the new, slightly-more-affordable iPod Touch, a device Apple calls "the funnest iPod ever." It's a hair thicker than its predecessor, but now it has built-in volume controls, a built-in speaker, Nike+ hardware and software, more games (including Spore: Origins), and longer battery life (up to 36 hours for music, 6 hours for video). The new iPod Touch is priced at $229 for the 8GB version, $299 for the 16GB version, and $399 for... more
Steve Jobs introduced a number of new products this week, including the 4th generation iPod Nano. Available in 9 different colors, the Nano is back to its former vertical (as opposed to short and squat) self, with a curved aluminum and glass design. Features include iTunes 8, an autoplaylist feature called Genius that finds and plays similar songs, voice recording, and accelerometer (the thing that switches the screen orientation when you turn it sideways).... more
The Sony Rolly is finally available. The portable gadget is one part MP3 player (with 2GB of memory), one part stereo system (it has built-in speakers), and one part confusing toy. It spins/rolls/moves/flaps its "wings" on its own, synchronizing its dance moves to the music with an accompanying light show (there are multicolor LED lights around each end of the Rolly). Confused? Join the club. We're still not sure what to make of this... more
New from Creative: The X-Fi, a 32GB personal media player that stands out a) because it's the size of a credit card and b) because it supports Wi-Fi, which means you can stream music and photos wirelessly from your computer to the X-Fi, and you can use the X-Fi to send instant messages via Yahoo! or MSN messenger. Other features include a 2.5" display, X-Fi technology that restores the quality of compressed music files,... more
We used to think of Haier as a no-name manufacturer of cheap electronics primarily sold at Walmart. But it looks like the brand is coming up in the world. Its Ibiza Rhapsody MP3 player - available in 4GB, 8GB, or 30GB in several colors - has some really cool features. The player comes with a free 30-day subscription to Rhapsody, and if you hear something you like on the Rhapsody channel, you can save... more
Why spend $200 on an 8GB iPod Nano when you can get the 8GB SanDisk Sansa Fuze - which has a microSD card slot for adding more memory - for just $130? The Fuze comes in several colors and capacities, has an FM tuner and voice recorder, works with Rhapsody, and supports photos and videos (although we don't really want to look at either one on a 1.9" screen). "Sure, it's a bit... more
According to Belkin, more than half of all teenagers listen to their iPods at school. (And you thought they went to school to learn.) So Belkin created the RockStar to let them share their playlists with friends and also create their own music mixes. The RockStar has 5 jacks, which lets 5 people listen to one or more iPods (or other MP3 or DVD players). The device also has mixing and fade-in controls so... more
iFrogz Audiowrapz aren't just cases for third-generation iPod Nanos. They're also speakers. But they're "passive speakers," which means there are no built-in amplifiers, and they don't need batteries or draw power from the Nano. The speakers probably don't provide boombox sound quality, but we like the idea of sharing music without sharing headphones. More iPod Nano cases.
