Apple Event on September 1

Posted by Zealot on Aug 26, 2010 | 5 Comments

Well, it is now official…Apple will be throwing their expected end of summer Shindig for 2010 on September 1st. As usual Cupertino is not giving any explicit hints about WHY they are summoning the press to San Francisco but everyone knows that when it is September, Steve Jobs fancy turns to iPods. At this point a new iPod Touch with cameras and Facetime capabilities is a lead pipe cinch, and there is a lot of smart...

iTunes TV for $30 a month?

Posted by Adam Wyss on Nov 02, 2009 | 2 Comments

Are you guys ready for an iTunes TV subscription?  For $30 a month I sure as heck am!  This would be a Netflix style on demand service that lets you access all the TV shows by participating networks.  This is great for people who live and die by their DVR because you could simply download to iTunes and go.  Or you could also sync it to your iDevice if that’s how you roll. This is all well and good and it could...

New iPod Prices….For Americans Only

Posted by Zealot on Sep 09, 2009 | 10 Comments

New iPod prices have already begun going up at Apple’s website, basically as predicted and bringing the prices more or less in line with the Zune HD. Assuming the 8G Touch will be dropped (unless they keep it at a very low price, say 99 bucks, without upgrading it to the new generation), that means the 16G Touch will sell for $249, just thirty dollars more than the Zune HD 16G and the 32G Touch will sell for $279,... 

Love Me, Don’t?

Maybe Yoko has no idea what she is talking about? Despite her supposed statement last night that the collected works of the group she destroyed (sorry, sorry, I kid) would be on iTunes later today, that may not be the case. No less prestigious a source as The Financial Times is reporting that EMI, the company that controls the money side of the Beatles collection, is saying “Tosh”. “Conversations between Apple... 

Will the Last Cat in the Bag Please Turn Out the Lights…

Posted by Zealot on Sep 08, 2009 | 3 Comments

Less then a day until Apple’s latest iPod party, and most of the cats seem to be done getting out of the bag and are already ripping apart Steve Jobs’ couch. First of all, as is all over the net, Best Buy already has Belkin cases for “3rd Generation iPod Touch” and “5th Generation iPod Nano” up on their website. My only question is this….if the only changes are holes for the camera and mic on the back,... 

iPod Camera Not Ready for it’s Close-up?

Posted by Zealot on Sep 07, 2009 | 2 Comments

AppleInsider is reporting the following rumor about the widely anticipated new camera-equipped iPods, expected to be announced in two days… A person with a strong track record in predicting Apple’s upcoming product launches said that the iPod maker experienced technical problems with the cameras months ago. The person said that it was uncertain whether the new hardware, which has been widely expected to debut... 

Digital Downloading, iTunes Gaining on CDs

Posted by Zealot on Aug 19, 2009 | 3 Comments

An NPD Group report on music purchases in the US was released this week with some staggering numbers. While CDs are still the most common way to purchase music, 35 percent of all music purchased in the US was acquired via digital download, and that only counts the legal downloads. If you include illegal downloading and file sharing, it is clear that digital will completely overshadow CDs in a few years.  Even more... 

Smile, You’re on my iPod

Posted by Zealot on Jul 06, 2009 | 8 Comments

Last week I speculated about what Apple could have in store for the fall, when it’s competitors in the MP3 player market will all be raising their games. The apparent answer is all over the blogosphere as TechCrunch tips the fact that Apple is buying gajillions of the camera they used in the iPhone 3GS…so many in fact they can only be planning on embedding them in the forehead of every one of Apple’s media contacts…or... 

Apple Releases the 3rd Generation iPod Shuffle

Posted by Chris Leckness on Mar 11, 2009 | 5 Comments

Yep, Apple has released their 3rd Generation of the iPod Shuffle and they’ve done it in a very weird way… UNLEAKED? Or was this leaked previously and nobody cared to notice? Either way, it’s hard to image anything coming out from a major company to make it without some sort of leak these days.   Apple today introduced the all-new iPod shuffle. The world’s smallest music player, the 3rd-generation... 

Some Say My Touch is Tru (Truphone that is)

Posted by Jack Cook on Dec 04, 2008 | 3 Comments

Andy Abramson from VoIP Watch had a very interesting piece today about Truphone having made the Apple iPod Touch into a WiFi phone. Yeah, that’s right and if you take a minute to read Andy’s article, I think you will agree that it is an exciting opportunity for folks that have the Apple iPod Touch on a lot of different fronts.  In part, Andy said: Yesterday Mike Butcher, TechCrunch UK broke the news... 

Cnet Prize Fight – Zune 120 vs iPod Classic 120

Posted by Chris Leckness on Dec 04, 2008 | 3 Comments

Last year, our Zune vs. Classic Prizefight ended in a tie. This year, Microsoft’s underdog MP3 player finally inches ahead of the iPod Classic, taking some strong blows in our Compatibility round, but scoring a big victory with its Sound and science score. As Microsoft continues to aggressively update its high-capacity Zune MP3 player with new features, Apple seems all too content leaving its Classic alone and... 

Full Page Wall Street Journal Ad – SanDisk 16GB MicroSDHC

Posted by Rich Bilancia on Oct 07, 2008 | 13 Comments

Today’s Wall Street Journal contains a full page ad announcing the SanDisk 16GB MicroSDHC card.  The ad caught my attention because the top half shows only an actual size microSD card with the following caption in red ink: “innovating the impossible.”  The bottom half of the page contains the following: “From the inventor of flash memory cards comes the first and only 16GB memory card... 

One iPod Reference Too Far

Posted by Zealot on Sep 18, 2008 | 13 Comments

One accepts a certain amount of bias in journalism, especially areas that depend so heavily on the opinion and viewpoint of the journalist. Consider it an occupational hazard…reviewers have favorites, pundits have blind spots, analysts have pre-conceived ideas…it’s just human nature after all. Normally I don’t really allow the persistent and kneejerk Anti-Microsoft/Pro-Apple bias that exists in almost all tech...

i-Kit iPhone FM Hands-free car kit & FM transmitter

Posted by Jay Donovan on Aug 14, 2008 | 22 Comments

I should probably let you know that I am the master of Jerry-rigging stuff. A few examples: I have a  screw/ring that I use to tune one of the broken machine heads on my 1939 Johann Nurnberg double bass… I have two broken guitar pedals that that I use to balance and  prop up the front feet of my 1970 Fender Rhodes organ (that is missing one of the leg extenders)… For years, I used a toothpick to...

The Countdown Begins

In approximately 60 hours I will see my favorite band of all time, Rush, perform at the United Center in Chicago.  That will be the first of two shows I see.  The next one is June 27th at Milwaukee Fest.  I decided to use technology to prepare myself for the shows.  Here’s how.

Zunes Gain in Market Share.

Posted by rock4christ on May 13, 2008 | Leave a Comment

ACE of ZuneBoards posted a good commentary on the Zune’s upward swing in market share: With the entire PDMP market relatively slow-going, one positive aspect (depending how you look at it) is Zune has still able to find ways to increase its market share. And not by minuscule amounts; Zune has been able to capitalize and generate 33% gains in its share of a highly competitive market. No one expected that… That’s...
