Want to beta test some super secret DivX stuff?

I saw DivX posted looking for beta testers for "super-secret stuff" this week.
They are taking applications here.

What I have heard is that DivX is working on a connected hardware platform in their connected home devices category. The PC to TV stuff. Like the SlingCatcher, Apple TV, Xbox 360 along with a few other streaming devices.

What I have been waiting for....

Last year when we were talking about PDA's I predicted a more integrated product, with a large hard drive.

Now, the first version of what I have been waiting for has been released.

Meet the Creative Vision M

It has a beautiful High resolution screen for photo and video content.

A 30 GIG hard drive.

MP3 player.

Voice recorder for notes.

and it syncs with Outlook!

Finally - a device to combine a pda, mp3 player, portable hard drive, video player and voice recorder all in one. This the first expensive pocket size computing device that I have bought for myself. I just ordered in Hot Pink. :-)

So... I will eagerly await its arival. I will report back once I get it.

Phillips Shoqbox

A new take on the traditional MP3 player. This has an FM tuner, holds either 256 or 512 MB, depending on which on eyou buy. Acts as a speaker system for other MP3 players. Has a rechargable battery and carrying case.

I got one for my husband to listen to while he works out in the garage, or whenever he doesn't want headphones. He had wanted a new clock radio and I thought this would be a nice step up from his last one. I don't know how good the sound is yet, but I will let you know.

No iPod Cases! How 'bout egrips?

Toshiba ships 40GB 1,8 inch HDD

Seems like Toshiba finally done it. They began shipping 40GB 1,8 inch HDD and later this year will sell a 80GB version. Of course they're using the Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR), their own patent.
The 40GB HDD is allready in use by the new Toshiba Gigabeat F41 MP3 player which can store up to 10.000 songs in it's new belly.
