Next time you see your doctor sporting an iPod at work, do not think that she/he is slacking off. Neil Skjodt, of the University of Alberta, claims that even the most modern of stethoscopes do not have the purity or clarity of sound of MP3 players. He also mentioned that they have the added feature of being able to store recordings for future reference. While PMPs will surely not replace stethoscopes, we suspect that the technology will contribute to the future of medical care in finding such complications as heart murmurs.

The recently released SanDisk Sansa Connect has been all the rage recently with a few of our readers. We caught up with SanDisk in the pre-launch window of the hip Wifi-enabled MP3 player. Priced at $250 USD, this Sansa Connect has Wifi that makes good on the capabilities of the technology, creating a true wireless player, unlike the crippled Wifi featured in the Zune.
CES is a monstrosity, spanning several million square feet of exhibition space and with every breed of gadget you’d ever expect to find. It’s really quite ridiculous. That being the case, we thought we’d survey the guests and ask what they were most excited about, and what they were there to see. The resounding consensus? “New stuff.”
We can tell you right now, we loved the original iriver clix. We loved the size, the UI, everything. We just got a look at the clix2, and can’t wait to get one of these once they are released. In the meantime, check the video for a preview of the device.
Here at Gear Live we got our Zune‘s at the official launch in November of 2006, and have been eagerly awaiting our first “in the wild” sighting of another Zune to try the wireless features outside of a “test scenario.”
Now don’t get us wrong, we love the Zune, but market adoption has been rather slow - but today in the SeaTac airport on our way to CES we encountered “ALIENSPAWNER” and had a chance to transfer a few tracks back and forth. Hit the jump for a picture of him with our Zune.
We recently got our hands on the Samsung YP-K5 digital audio player, one of the few MP3 players that has a built-in speaker. The K5 also has an FM tuner, a 1.7-inch color OLED screen, touch-sensitive controls, and 2GB or 4GB of embedded flash memory. Tack on the promise of fantastic battery life, and this one should be a keeper, right? We have provided you with a Samsung K5 unboxing gallery, and also give you our thoughts in our full review, after the break.
