U2 Previews New Tracks for Joshua Tree on iLike

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.

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 Continue Reading

USB Turntable has Direct Connect to iPod

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.

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. Continue Reading
