    iPod buying guide

    Posted November 23, 2010 - 12:57 pm

    Signs of the holiday season: Shiny wrapping paper, trees propped in convenient corners, Muzak laden with sleigh bells, the nog of an egg, and, of course, recently released iPods on offer. In a tradition as predictable as the holiday season itself, we turn once again to the season's most pressing question: Which iPod (or iPhone or iPad) is right for you or the object of your affection?

    Product review: Sony MEX-BT5700U Xplod Bluetooth CD Receiver

    Posted January 4, 2010 - 11:24 am

    Each year, more and more new cars include built-in connection options for iPods, iPhones, and Bluetooth devices. But if you’re not yet in the market for a new car, you can still get such connectivity via an aftermarket upgrade. Sony’s MEX-BT5700U, a member of the company’s Xplod line of automobile head units, is a solid option that lets you connect both iPods and iPhones.

    iPod Nano 5th Generation (16GB) Audio Player

    Posted September 24, 2009 - 9:11 am

    The fifth-gen iPod Nano is almost impossibly slim, but somehow the wizards at Apple managed to pack in a video camera. Though you'll find a few other new features in the fifth-generation Nano, the video camera is the marquee addition. Considering how much space your home-video clips might take up, it's unfortunate that Apple didn't boost the Nano's storage capacity this generation.

    Hands on with the iPod nano

    Posted September 10, 2009 - 8:53 am

    As is the tradition at its iPod-themed press briefings, Apple opened a demo area to show off the new hardware announced just minutes before at Wednesday's Rock & Roll event. As you might imagine, much of the activity centered on the area where the new iPod nano was on display. Fast though the third-generation iPod touch may be and nicely shiny the iPod shuffle SE, the fifth-generation iPod nano offers tangible--and, Apple hopes, desirable--new features.

    The two new 4G iPod nano models double the capacity of their predecessors, offering 8GB of flash memory for $149 and 16GB for just $50 more. Apple has also gone back to the wraparound, anodized-aluminum design of the 2G nano and increased the number of available colors.

    First look: iPod touch

    Posted September 11, 2008 - 10:03 am

    With the second go-round of the iPod touch -- introduced Tuesday as part of Apple's annual fall iPod line overhaul -- Apple takes another step in the right direction by adding two desirable physical features: external volume controls and an internal speaker. Along the way, the company also slimmed down the case and rounded the iPod touch's edges (like the iPhone 3G). The price for the iPod touch has been slimmed down as well.

    Pac-Man for iPod

    Posted July 25, 2008 - 11:32 am

    Namco has brought its classic coin-op arcade game Pac-Man to the iPod, so it's fitting that one of its first iPhone offerings is another version of Pac-Man. This new release for the iPhone and iPod touch is easier to see than the original iPod game, that's for sure. It also has some innovative control options, though it comes up short on the game play side.
