Sony Ericsson MH907: First headphones that sense you

Sony Ericsson

has been promising something new with their new MH907 earphones, but we suppose their claim of “the way you listen to music changes forever” is a tad too bragadocious. 

The SensMe technology is somewhat impressive, though.  You put the phones in your ear, and it plays.  Just take one of them out, and your audio automatically pauses.  Calls can be taken in the same manner. 

These earphones come in chrome and yellow/white for about $55.  Of course, you will need a Sony Ericsson phone with a “Fast port” connector to use “the first stereo headphones that sense you.”  There is a YouTube video below with freaky animation if you want to see how it works.

Chris Brown Wants Rihanna Back

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Break-ups, Meltdowns,

Chris Brown Twitters about his missing RihannaChris Brown has publicly pleaded for Rihanna to give him another chance.

The 20-year-old singer, who assaulted his on/off girlfriend in February and was recently sentenced to five years probation and six months community labor, has romantically reached out to the “Umbrella” signer online.

He wrote on Twitter, “MY HEART IS INCOMPLETE… the part that is complete is my love for fans, career, friends, family… God. But I’m missing someone or something (sic).”

To ensure it was clear who he was referring to, Chris posted a link to a version of his new song “Changed Man” on YouTube, which features a series of pictures of him and Rihanna together. Among the photographs are several of the couple, who dated for around 18 months, kissing and cuddling, and others of them laughing and whispering to each other.

Chris added on Twitter, “Sorry all, just one of those days.”

Retro-Reimaginings of The Dark Knight Trailer

Posted by Kris Madden Categories: Movies, DC Comics,

2008’s The Dark Knight was not the first time Batman faced off against his archenemy Joker on the big screen, or even the small screen. Thanks to YouTube’s community of film-editing hobbyists, there are three trailers for previous Batman films replaced with the audio track from The Dark Knight trailer. Enjoy.

Batman: The Animated Series (1992)

The best treatment of The Dark Knight trailer’s audio is a clip made from episodes of the early 90’s TV cartoon Batman: The Animated Series. The cartoon becomes a Gothic “Hanna-Barbera” nightmare and seamlessly goes along with soundtrack as if it was meant to be that way all along.

iPod nano 5G: Shoots video, FM tuner with Live Pause, Pedometer (with videos!)

iPod nano shoots video

The got a very welcome upgrade today, with Apple integrating a camera into the device, making it the first (and only - sorry iPod touch) iPod with a built-in camera. On the lower left on back of the iPod nano sits the camera, along with speaker and microphone. The iPod nano only records video, so it doesn’t take still images, and those videos are recorded at 640x480 in H.264 up to 30fps with AAC audio. There are also 15 video effects you can apply, like Black and White, Film Grain, Thermal, X-Ray, and more.

Also making the iPod nano unique is the addition of an FM tuner, again, a first for the iPod line. Apple has even included a feature they call Live Pause, which lets you pause radio, and continue listening later. It holds a buffer of up to 15 minutes. You’ll also find a pedometer in the new nano, which works together with the built-in Nike+ integration, and a new, larger 2.2-inch screen - up from 2-inch on the previous model. We’ve got videos after the break that show off the iPod nano video camera, Genius Mix, and FM radio features.

The fifth generation iPod nano is available now at $149 for the 8GB model, and $179 for the 16GB version, and they come in nine new colors.

Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Review (with video!)

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Features, Software, Videos,

Snow Leopard Review

Mac owners, the time for upgrading is upon as, as Mac OS X 10.6 is now available on a worldwide basis. If you didn’t know that there was a new operating system from today, we wouldn’t blame you, because it’s kind of been released without much fanfare. You see, Snow Leopard is all about fine tuning, refining, and improving upon OS X 10.5 Leopard. It’s a makeover that, at first glance, seems underwhelming because the majority of the changes occur “under the hood” so to speak.

So, what can you expect? Well, if you’ve used an iPhone 3G and an iPhone 3GS, think of it in those terms. They are really pretty much the same product, but the 3GS is much snappier, and has a couple of new features that the 3G doesn’t have, namely a better camera and a compass. Comparing Snow Leopard to Leopard is similar - you get speed, things feel faster, and potential is unlocked for the future, because there are some cool things that third-parties can tap into now.

Not everything is under the hood, though. You will see a few UI tweaks, like Dock Expose, right-click dock menus, Finder icons, and the like. We will cover all of those in more detail, but again, that isn’t the focus here. If you are underwhelmed right now, read on, because there is a lot to be excited about. At the very least, though, understand that upgrading to Snow Leopard will cost you just $29. Now that we have your attention, let’s move on. We’ve got videos for you, after the break.

Michael Jackson Doc Thanks His Supporters


Dr. Conrad Murray has become the most infamous name in the investigation. A frequent target for DEA raids in the course of the investigation, Murray is believed to have administered Propofol to Jackson. This could have caused the singer’s untimely death. No formal charges have been brought against Murray.

He’s now posted a YouTube video, ostensibly because he is “afraid to return phone calls or use my email.” In his message, the doctor thanks patients and friends for the supportive messages they’ve been sending. “Your messages give me strength and courage and keep me going. They mean the world to me.”
