TDK’s latest speaker system is multi-functional and looks stylish as well. Featuring two 2.5 W flat panel speakers with NXT technology and Blue LCD display, the iSlim comes with an iPod dock with adapters, clock, alarm and FM radio. There is a AUX input for other audio players, a video-out jack, a one button equalizer, and menu and select keys. A remote and antenna are also part of the deal. For $149.00, we definitely prefer this to the Jukebox/Dock as a holiday gift, hint, hint.

If you can find a more aptly-named item than the “Show Off T-Shirt” we’d love to see it. This tee actually has a graphic equalizer panel that is sensitive to sound, so that the red, yellow and green lights actually move to the beat of music playing nearby. Luckily, the shirt’s small, detachable battery pack has an on/off switch, in case you suddenly decide normalcy isn’t so bad after all. Requires 4 AAA batteries, which are not included. For better or worse, instant (if fleeting) fame can be costly, as the $92 USD price for this tee can attest to.
Today Nokia introduced their N75 at New York’s Open Studio. This small multimedia computer offers digital music playback, quality photography, telephony and what they refer to as a “rich” Internet communication. Housed in a thin clamshell and utilizing its 2.4-inch screen for a slide show, it can print 2 megapixel (1600 x 1200 pixels) photos with up to 16 million colors. It also features a 16x digital zoom, an integrated flash LED, and accepts files in JPEG/EXIF format. Wait, there’s more. The N75 doubles as a mini-TV screen, supports formats MP3, M4A, AAC, eAAC+, and WMA, and its advanced digital music player includes an equalizer, playlist, shuffle and repeat features. There’s still more. With an internal memory of up to 40 MB, it can be further expanded with an optional microSD card of up to 2 GB. We’re simply exhausted, so visit Nokia if you want even more details, such as availability and price.
