U2 used iLike.com to post a video of Bono singing “Wave of Sorrow” while sitting on a couch. It’s a track that U2 demoed during sessions for The Joshua Tree in 1987. Just recently Bono laid down vocals for the song and it will be released for the first time next week on the remastered release of The Joshua Tree.
As Bono plays the track, he sings over it and talks listeners through the story of the song and explains the lyrics.
“Wave of Sorrow” is one of several rare and previously unreleased cuts which are featured on the bonus audio CD of the remastered deluxe and super deluxe versions of the remastered release of The Joshua Tree.
I couldn’t tell you how many times a USB hub wouldn’t let me plug in multiple devices because the connectors where too close. This USB cable hub from Brando solves that problem.
Four USB ports stream out from a central box which holds the USB hub controller chip for flexible and free USB connectivity.

Looking cool and sounding cool will sure as hell make you feel cool. The Oakley MP3 Sunglasses could up your game with their all new MP3 sunglasses with full iTunes support.

Capture Santa’s attention with these USB photo bulb Christmas ornaments. The bulb uses an LCD display and can store, on average, about 50 photos. Stop Santa in his tracks with either still pictures or tell him a story with the slide show feature.
One could argue a good Christmas gift, but don’t put your recipient in that awkward state of “thanks,” just get them something better. Seems to me the display is too small (1.5 inches) and would only force you to hover, breaking your back. However, you can use the included
Ion Audio introduced the USB turntable a while back. It’s an excellent tool for converting vinyl records to MP3. It’s interesting to see the growth of this product from when I first reported on it. At the time back orders took nearly 6 weeks to fill, now I see them at Costco and every holiday mail-order magazine that appears on my doorstep.
Ion Audio has stepped it up – and I’m thinking it’s from popular demand. The Ion USB turntable now has an iPod dock station so going from LP to iPod is nothing more than
Convergence is always a technology innovation most appreciate. The folks with the most creative and useful ideas generally land on top. Here is an example of an idea that is middle ground. The rechargeable USB lighter that doubles as USB drive.

The convergence is where you stuff in some solid state memory so when your Kool cigarette lighter is plugged into your PC you have a logical excuse that it’s a novelty USB drive rather then broadcasting your smoking habits – although it’s the same difference I suppose.
For the decreasing number of smokers out there the design is unfortunately just that, nothing in production as of yet.
