Toshiba has released their TLP-X2000U Projector, supposedly the first one with voice guidance. The wireless 3LCD device audibly assists you with set up and will let you know about system problems such as lamp life, on/off status and cooling fan status. At a weight of only 4.4 lbs., it has close captioning, a multi-screen function, and is Windows Vista compatible. With 3,000 ANSI lumens, XGA (1024x768) resolution, and a 600:1 contrast ratio, talk ain’t cheap. Think $1,739.00 from Toshiba’s online store.

Hey, if the Amazon Kindle news from earlier didn’t suit your fancy because you just aren’t into e-books, then maybe you prefer your books in audio form. If you do, you’re in luck if you are a Zune owner. Paul Thurrott of WinSuperSite got word from Zune support that Audible compatibility is coming by the end of the year:
While we do not have an exact date as to when the device will be officially AudibleReady, we expect to make the Zune compatible before years end. Our Device Center on our website will be updated upon the Zune becoming compatible, so please be sure to check there periodically.
Not too bad. With this, plus games coming soon as well, the Zune is shaping up quite nicely when compared to the iPod, wouldn’t you say?
