Ever since the iPod was released, companies from all over have come out with various gadgets to further enhance Apple’s top selling portable music player. Nyko has come up with a device to help turn your iPod into a movie player. That’s right, come November you’ll be able to fill up your iPod with as many movies as you can, then watch them on the go with the Nyko Movie Player. The player is expected to retail anywhere between $200-$250 and will feature a 3.6” high resolution screen, 2 headphone ports, a video-out port allowing you to view your movies on any TV, and a video-in port giving you the ability to record directly from your television. As you can see, the iPod plug right into a slot beneath the control panel.

In a move that isn’t really all that surprising, Logitech has commercialized the wireless, Bluetooth enabled headphone that was once exclusive only to the HP iPaqs. This new, lightweight set, which will retail for about $150, is for use with only the Apple iPod. It features iPod controls on the headphone unit itself, and an internal, rechargeable battery(that is not removable) which is said to fully charge in 2 1/2 hours. Not willing to spend so much money on something you don’t know much about? Check out CNET’s review here.

So it looks like Motorola has come out an upped the ante for sleek sexy bluetooth headsets. They have announced a RAZR styled H3 headset that will come out in a sleek black package. They are also announcing the H700 and the H300, two other small headsets with either a boom mike style or an over the ear clip and radically different styling. It’s interesting how bluetooth headsets are fast becoming fashion statement of tomorrow like cellphones are now. I’ve reviewed Motorola headsets before and found their sound quality to be quite good so I’m eagerly looking forward to having a chance to check this one out in all its infinite smallness.

Despite being pilloried in both the press and gaming communities, the Nokia N-Gage QD is a great (and most importantly, cheap) smartphone. At E3, Nokia unveiled some accessories that look to improve the platform, including the problem of having a smartphone platform where the expandable storage and game cards use the same slot. These new add-ons are all due in the second half of the year.
Unfortunately, each accessory has some strange drawback or flaw, and perhaps shows that the N-Gage just isn’t fully up to the task of being what Nokia envisions the platform as. Let’s take a look at what they’ve come up with.

PT from MAKEzine and FlashEnabled has put together a mini-review of Spark Fun’s new rotary mobile phone. I’ve seen some hack projects similar to this, but this is the first commercially available one we’ve come across. I really do miss the old fashioned phones, and once a handset like this comes out that’s a bit cheaper I’ll go buy one for my desk at work. Ideally someone will make a commercially available Bluetooth version of this so it can just act as a headset for the mobile phone left in my bag.
I recently bought another iPod to replace my Zen Micro and had to find a way to get the music to play through my car stereo. In my previous car I had a line in installed into the jack, but with my new Volkswagen, there is no easy way to do that without buying an expensive adapter. After doing a fair bit of research I decided to get the Monster iCarPlay iPod wireless transmitter and after a couple of days with it I’m pretty impressed. Check out our full review after the jump!
One of the greatest innovations to come to the computing market in years just got a bit better! A little over a year ago DiscHub launched their fantastic disc management system. DiscHub just launched the second version of their product and I have had the pleasure of reviewing the improvements. Check out the full review after the jump.
Google is is just about everywhere these days with their search engine and Gmail. Why not give them even more real estate using your desk? Check out the Google Icon Vase Speaker. On sale now at the Google Store for $30.75, the dark metallic blue speaker hooks up easily enough through your USB port.
Many computer speakers have a rather grim look and too many wires, so consider this sound alternative: a single 2-way surround sound speaker with innovative audio lens technology, a tweeter tuned for clarity. The speaker is powered by a single USB plug (no adapter required), and the clever on/off knob at the top emits an orange LED glow when it’s on.
