TuneWiki for BlackBerry

Posted by Steve Laser on Jun 30, 2009 | 11 Comments

I’ve had enough of iPhone this and iPhone that.  Let’s talk cool apps for your BlackBerry, shall we?  Gear Diary reported that TuneWiki is available for the BlackBerry.  What is TuneWiki?  It’s a website that plays music of your choice and displays lyrics.  It’s a community forum.  It displays maps that show what other users are listening to.  It may still be... 

Why Text Messages are limited to 160 Characters

Posted by CodeBubba on May 05, 2009 | 6 Comments

I always wondered this myself.  I had certain ideas like maybe 160 out of 255 characters in an Ethernet Packet or some other method of squeezing the data in.  Turns out that my thoughts on that were not all that far-fetched… Looking for a data pipeline that would fit these micro messages, Hillebrand came up with the idea to harness a secondary radio channel that already existed on mobile networks. This smaller data... 

First Windows Mobile 6.5 Screen-shots leaked

Posted by Gil Bouhnick on Jan 21, 2009 | 3 Comments

There has been a lot of sites presenting those same 2 images of supposedly Windows Mobile 6.5. Today I found completely different screen-shots, taken by one of the XDA-Developers guys who “somehow” received the new OS version. Of course – it may be that all of it is a fraud, but the XDA-Developers tend to be reliable so who knows… Among the new features – a new today screen (similar to the... 

The Ultimate iPod Accessory

Posted by Steve Laser on Jan 05, 2009 | 1 Comment

I’ve been thinking about my drive to work.  It’s one to one and a half hours each way.  My factory car stereo, as most, is mediocre at best, so to make my drive more palatable I upgraded the speakers.  It was pretty easy to do so, and not very expensive.  I also installed a $30 Scosche FM modulator so I can listen to my iPod. To install this I had to remove the receiver, plug the car’s antenna into the modulator,...

My current PMP mania concludes, as today I acquired one of the true heavyweights on the market…a Cowon Q5W 80G. This tiny titan can run just about any video codec on it’s 5 inch, 800×480 screen, not to mention more audio formats then you can shake a digitized orchestra at. Running Cowon’s proprietary GUI over Windows CE, the Q5W features 80G of storage, WiFi, Bluetooth, FM Radio, Flash player, Office document... 

ID3 Tag Basics

Posted by Steve Laser on Dec 05, 2008 | 1 Comment

I just read a great article at Anything But iPod that explains what ID3 tags are and how you use them.  According to the site, “ID3 tags are basically information tags inside the MP3 file that tell the player all sorts of things. It can be as simple as artist and album or as complex as having 20 high resolution images of the cover and booklet inside the same MP3 file. Read on for a roundup of this feature...

Well, Graham has put up his list of the tops MP3 players of 2008… SanDisk Sansa Clip Samsung P2 Microsoft Zune 120 Cowon iAudio D2 Sony Walkman A720/A820 I have to agree with the Zune, Sony, and the Samsung P2, I’ve used all 3 and they are super. To read why the players dropped... 

REVIEW – Sansa Clip 8G

Posted by Zealot on Dec 01, 2008 | 2 Comments

I have been in an MP3 Player state of mind of late, that is why I jumped at the chance to play with a review model of the new supersized Sansa Clip, courtesy of SanDisk. The device practically defines “no nonsense”. It sports the same tiny size as the rest of the Clip line, but now with 8 big Gigs of flash memory goodness. Having owned one of the 2G models for several months now, I was very curious to see if SanDisk... 

REVIEW – iRiver SPINN 8G

Posted by Zealot on Nov 18, 2008 | 5 Comments

I have been playing with iRiver’s newest PMP offering, the SPINN for two weeks now, and am finally ready to put some of my meandering thoughts down concerning this fascinating new device. It is literally unlike any MP3 player I have ever used before and has been great fun to test. For those of you who have missed reading about this device on the blogs or seeing one in the shops, the SPINN is a small PMP with a retro... 

Sansa Clip Bumped Up to 8GB, Still a Tiny Player!

Posted by Chris Leckness on Nov 12, 2008 | Leave a Comment

The Sansa line has come a long way and up against some stiff competition (iPod and Zune), but they keep going like the Energizer Bunny. The Sandisk Sansa Clip was one of the smallest music players out there and it’s still super small, but now you can put more on it. Sandisk has bumped the capacity to 8GB. That’s a lot of flash storage! SanDisk Corporation, a leading seller of MP3 players in the United States,... 

iRiver SPINN Unboxing Shots

Posted by Zealot on Nov 02, 2008 | 7 Comments

Well, the need for a new gadget got the better of me this weekend, and as they just arrived in stores here a few days ago, I had to take the plunge on the new iRiver SPINN. I have been a fan of iRiver for ages now, still using my old 6Gig H20 every now and again. As a brand they have fallen somewhat behind the pack lately just because they hadn’t really put out a new product to rival the new iPod Touch and Nanos or... 

Sandisk Sansa Fuze

Posted by Tim Hillebrand on Oct 18, 2008 | 6 Comments

In my search for a sleek, stylish, and small MP3 player with bookmarking capabilities so that I could listen to audiobooks, I discovered the new Sandisk Sansa Fuze, and what a lovely find it is indeed. It measures 3.1” x 1.9” x .3” and weighs 2.1 ounces. It has a 1.9” landscape screen with a navigation wheel and center button. This compact player is available in 2, 4 and 8 GB built-in memory increments. But it... 

Zune, better but still…

Posted by ctitanic (left mobilitysite) on Sep 17, 2008 | 18 Comments

Yesterday I updated my Zune to the latest software and firmware, Version 3.0. While the PC part of the software did not change too much, it still slow, consuming a lot of resources, being the last thing you want to have to handling your music collection, with a very simplistic way to categorize your music taste (good or bad, come on, give me back the 5 stars system), the mp3 player part of it has changed up to the point... 

Is the Meizu M8 out of Vaporware Status?

Posted by Chris Leckness on Sep 02, 2008 | 1 Comment

OK, it’s been a while since I have posted or even cared about the supposed iPhone Killer, the Meizu M8. A couple iPhones have been launched since these guys started showing their mock ups of what is really just a rip off of the iPhone. After Apple announced the launch of the original iPhone, concept photos and other phooey about the Meizu M8 began to surface. I had actually forgotten all about this device until...

XM Satellite and Sirius complete merger

Posted by Chris Leckness on Jul 29, 2008 | 1 Comment

When did this merger talk start up? It’s been so long that I can’t even remember. I do remember passing on buying myself a Pioneer Inno because of the uncertainty that this merger put on things. It’s finally done according to the AP though… XM Satellite Radio and Sirius Satellite Radio say they have completed their merger. The new company plans to change its name to Sirius XM Radio Inc. The combined... 

Do All mp3 Players Sound Alike?

Posted by Steve Laser on Jul 02, 2008 | 6 Comments

  Recently I read a review of an mp3 player where the author purposely chose not to discuss sound quality because, in the author’s words, “The chosen player has a great deal to do with how you access your music, but very little to do with how it sounds…”  That got me thinking.  Do all mp3 players sound alike?  They are all digital, so it’s the same 1’s and 0’s... 

Rhapsody "embracing" the iPod

Posted by Jack Cook on Jun 30, 2008 | 1 Comment

Rhapsody is offering songs online and via partners including Yahoo Inc and Verizon Wireless,that will be sold in MP3 format, so iPod users can now take the challenge … iTunes or Rhapsody. Described as  “Music Without Limits”, Rhapsody will be available on mobile phones via the Verizon Wireless VCAST Music service.

Getting Creative with Chat

Posted by Zealot on Jun 29, 2008 | 2 Comments

It appears that long time digital audio technology leader Creative has a product in the pipeline that would combine an MP3 players with a text messaging device, the Zen X-Fi. An interesting approach certainly, but I am a little dubious there will be a market for it as the combination seems a little bit like digital chalk and cheese. The clever fellows over at epiZENter.net have a very iPhonish leaked pic and apparently...
