03/31/2013, The dedicated MP3 player can be said to have gone all but extinct, especially when you consider that folks these days prefer to carry all of their favorite tunes on a single smartphone (which is more than capable of just playing back your MP3 files, as those do video, too). Well, word has it that Cowon holds out a flicker of hope for the dedicated MP3 player by introducing the […]

09/19/2011, Over the weekend, an image of a new HTC device called the HTC Beat turned up on the internet, and there were speculations about yet another Android phone from the company. I mean, after HTC Rhyme and HTC Bass – HTC Beat fits in with the naming scheme right?

08/11/2011, Ahh, don’t you miss the good ol’ days of the cassette tape? When people actually had to spend time creating mix tapes that they shared with one another?

05/05/2011, The portable media player is more or less dominated by the iPod over the years, and it has remained so since then with nary a worthy challenger in sight. Of course, Microsoft did try with their Zune, but sad to say, the software giant has failed to take over the iPod’s mantle. Well, Creative does have its fair share of fans, and intend to make a statement with the Creative […]
