LG Has Just Launched Personal Media Players

LG has just launched one of the personal media players they announced at CES earlier this year. The MFJM53 has an 8GB drive, a 1.77-inch touch-sensitive OLED screen, and measures a slight 10.1 x 4.8 x 1.4cm, weighing 88g. And while it certainly meets the definition of a PMP, LG seems to be downplaying that aspect of the device, referring to it simply as an MP3 player on their website. In addition to MP3s, it'll handle PlaysForSure WMA files, WAV, Ogg, MPEG-4 AVI, and JPEG files. The device also has an FM radio, built-in microphone, and line-in port for audio recording, and the battery should give you about 30 hours of music playback or 4 hours of video, according to LG. They also list something called "Music Therapy" in the specs but don't give any details. Whatever it is, it sounds like Mac users will have to get their therapy fix elsewhere.

The Slide Box

With an interesting take on digital photography. We all have gotten too used to having a camera as a single unit these days, I guess, and that’s why Yanco designe decided to break the mould, and create a camera that splits in half which She calls it the "Slide Box". The lens portion, on a fat pen-like stick, can easily be removed and placed somewhere. It can even be attached to another object by an elastic band. The main unit provides a color monitor and acts as a remote control device for the picture taker.When put together, it doesn’t look like the smallest snapshot capturer on the market, but bear in mind that this is still in the concept stage and substantial changes can still be made. Personally, I like it, especially for its application of taking group pictures without forcing someone to sit out.

We go on and on in life focussing more on the negative, how we've failed and how other people has hurt us and not considering the effect it has on us, and do you know what it is? Frowns... but have we ever stopped to ask ourselves what really it takes to smile. The freedom it leaves in us, the life it adds to our existence, the health ang the wealthy benefits. Do you know that humour and laughter are being increasingly used in a variety of therapeutic situations? Research into the use of therapeutic humour tells us it has the power to motivate, alleviate stress and pain, and improves one’s sense of well being and this is a useful information on the healthful effects of laughter. Ideas are presented on how to use humour systematically when working with children, youth, and families.

Choosing A Wristwatch

Even the best-dressed guys can get tripped up when it comes to buying the right watch. Watches are complex, can be expensive and there are a lot of them out there. So just what should you know when shopping for one? Well, you can start by looking at your wardrobe and your budget, and asking yourself few questions like,
· When will you be wearing it?
· What will you use it for -- work, going out, lounging around, playing sports?
· How do you feel about high-tech gadget watches?
· How much money do you want to spend? While you can conceivably get any style of watch for little money, certain watchmakers and brands command very high prices. I'm talking sports car high prices.
watch types and options
So you've decided on the situations in which you'll wear your watch and you've figured out the style you want for your wardrobe. Before heading out, take a look at the main types of wristwatches and some of their parts. An analog watch has a face that holds hour and minute hands, and either numbers, markers or Roman numerals that display a 12-hour day. It is considered the more formal, classic watch type, and is perfect for business, dates and formal events.

Is SGH-X820 The World's Slimmest Phone, As Samsung Claimed?

SEOUL, South Korea - Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. has developed the slimmest mobile phone. The SGH-X820 will be showcased at the Sviaz/ExpoComm in Moscow this week. "The Samsung ‘ultra-slim phone’ has set a record in the mobile handset history by breaking the wall of 7-millimeter thickness for the first time in the world," the company said in a statement”. The South Korean electronics giant has been focusing on the slim range ever since Motorola's Razr range becoming such a huge success. The SGH-X820 is just about 6.9 mm thick and weighs about 66 grams. It has got an in-built MP3 player, which can store up to 80MB of music files. A 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth connectivity and a TV-out jack complete the sleek picture. The candy bar-style handset is slated for a European launch later in the month and will be launched in China in June. It will initially be based on GSM technology, but depending on the response and demand, the company said that it would launch a CDMA-based model in the United States.

Sony MP3P NW-E00

I have a sketchy report forseeing Sony’s next futile flail at creating an iPod rival last week, and now here's details about it. I'm right, it’s a USB stick-like player. Looking a lot like a cheap Bic lighter, it weighs just under an ounce, and also available in a variety of colors as you can see, and can play for 28 hours on a one-hour charge. It will be available in 512MB ($116), 1GB ($148) and 2GB ($191) capacities, and will include Sony’s “Dynamic Normalizer” which sounds suspiciously like a similar function that’s been in the iPod for years. Hmm.

Digital Point And Shoot Camera

The new Point & Shoot Video Camcorder bumps video storage to 30 minutes, and includes a USB connector to offload video to your PC using included software that can email clips to friends and relatives. There's also a TV connector cable to watch clips straight off the camera, or you can always drop off the camera to have a DVD made, the difference being that you get the camera back this time and this will save you from spending $30 for one of those single-use video cameras with the prospect of spending another $13 for a 20 minute DVD of your footage. Pure Digital is releasing a standalone version of their video camera for a mere $130. Now available at Target, the camera still isn't going to do much more than a decent digital camera or phone can pull off these days, but it doesn't seem a bad option for the tech-phobic or in risky situations you wouldn't want to stick your $1000 camera into.

Apple Initiating A Silent recall on MacBook Pro batteries?

PCSIntel is reporting that Apple's effecting a "silent" recall and replacement of first and second week MacBook Pro batteries with the serial numbers W8607 and W8608 due to the Symptoms of battery failure, power cut-offs, mis-reporting of remaining power, and unresponsiveness to status polling.This means that only the very first week or so of production of MacBook Pros are affected. You know, the usual for a 1.0 product. Though Apple PR have not said this yet, but a quick call to Apple support -- which according to PCSIntel should have yielded a quick blanket-return of any part with a serial that started as stated above -- yielded no recommendation for return. That doesn't necessarily mean the batteries from the first and second weeks aren't (often) defective, or that Apple isn't necessarily silently recalling them. This doesn't mean that if your new system is having problems you'll not be giving them a call.

Wristwatch Case

Not all products are good enough to be first quality but this one is different, It is made of durable cowhide leather with a sturdy zipper. The interior is lined with velour on both sides. A velour flap attached to the case spline separates watches on both sides, to prevent scratching. The flap has a snap at the bottom to keep it attached at top and bottom, due to the weight of multiple watches. The watches on each side are separated by stiff dividers to prevent watch cases from moving sideways and hitting one another. A strong elastic strap holds the watch securely to the side of the case. The space between dividers is about 1-1/2 inches, with the two outer spaces on each side being slightly wider
