Dynamic8 Turns Mundane USB Charger Into Must-Have Accessory

Doing a bit of research for iPhone chargers I came across the Dynamic8 iPhone and iPad charger.  The look is fantastic and is very contemporary.  No protrusive charger sticking out half way into the drivers console, but rather flush, stylish looking accessory.

Sliders for your iPod

We know the Nano and iPod Touch don’t come with speakers, so it was nice to see the latest product roll-out from Green Power.  Their sliding speaker system is quite nice, compact for the iPod line. A miniUSB port makes the connection between the iPod and the speaker system.  Green Power reports a long playback of nearly 12 hours, but I find that hard to believe because my iPod barely stays charged for 12 hours using the ear buds.

The slider speakers are 1.5Watts which should carry a fairly good sound for desktop use at the office or maybe a quite pool side background music. No report on price, but if they tag it more than $25, you wont see many takers. Continue Reading

iPod Shuffle Bracelet – Concept Only

GetUSB has seen plenty of USB wristbands in the past, but nothing as unique and useful as the iPod Shuffle Bracelet.  The concept design does make sense as well, after all the only reason most have an iPod shuffle is for jogging and running where they’ve strapped the Shuffle to their arm anyway.  This design just brings about the fore-gone conclusion.

In addition, the popularity of the iPhone, Touch and larger iPods maybe Apple needs a fresh, different design for the Shuffle.  Keep that legacy product line alive. Source:  TUAW. Continue Reading

Converting Audio File Formats in iTunes

iTunes is much more than a digital music jukebox. It’s capable of handling many different tasks involving digital media. Some of iTunes’ most popular features include buying music and videos online, burning CDs, and syncing files with your iPod or iPhone. But one of the lesser known functions hidden within iTunes is the ability to convert audio files. Why would you need to convert an audio file? Converting audio file types can be useful in many different situations. Here are a few examples:
  • You have an AAC file in iTunes that’s not compatible with your Zune that can play MP3 and not AAC files.
  • A WAV file needs to be emailed to a client for approval but it’s too big. You need to convert the file to an AAC so it’s small enough to easily send via email.
  • You are making a music video and want to use a song you got online as the soundtrack. However, the editing program won’t import the song because it doesn’t support MP3 or AAC.
  • You need to remove the DRM (Digital Rights Management) from an AAC song you purchased from the iTunes Store (see step #7).
Many programs that convert audio files into different formats are pretty complicated and usually cost money. But not iTunes. iTunes is simple, fast and best of all… free. Tutorial: Converting Audio File Formats in iTunes methodshop Continue Reading
