Sungale isn't a popular name like Apple, Acer or Archos, but it's making a play for the portable media player market with its Kula TV. Boasting a 4.3" display, a pop-up Wi-Fi antenna and the ability to stream Internet content, this is one of the most interestingly designed PMPs that we've seen to date.The screen is actually a touch panel, and it also includes 2GB of internal memory, but otherwise there aren't many details to go on. It will arrive in March at $199.99, presumably with support for a wide range of audio and video formats.

When you think of ViewSonic, you probably think of LCD monitors. Believe it or not, this company is actually pretty diverse, and its easily-recognized monitor division is just one of the many aspects where it  to the larger realm of consumer electronics. Take the VPD400 for example, which is a rather robest media player that actually looks a lot like something a top-label company like Apple would create.The MovieBook VPD400 describes itself as the next generation of the ultimate, all-in-one portable entertainment experience, and while we kind of doubt it'll take the place of the iPod, the 4.3" display and high-res 800x480 display may get some attention from the anti-Apple crowd. It'll also... Read more...
It's a good time to be in the market for a portable media player. From Apple's iPod lineup (the obvious choice) to Microsoft's Zune HD to Archos' range of media-centric players, you've got options galore. But just in case you still weren't confused enough as to which device was right for you, Creative has just added another to the mix. The company once famous for its expansive range of audio cards has begun to dabble in the wide world of PMPs, and while it's newest product is no iPod touch, it may just be enough for you. The ZEN X-Fi2, as it's known, is a touch screen-based player, and on paper, it's pretty darn respectable. The 4" x 2.2" x 0.5" player weighs just 2.6oz. and boasts a 3" LCD touch... Read more...
Asus may have been a little known computer company just a few years back, but today it's gaining steam and branching out into more and more areas. Take this product for example, the O!Play AIR HDP-R3. It's the second set-top box in the "O!Play" lineup, and while this one doesn't look at that different (physically, anyway), there are a few nice extras added in for those who chose to pass on the first edition. At its core, this is a simple media streamer/player. You simply hook it up near your HDTV, get it on your network (via Ethernet or Wi-Fi), and then enjoy whatever media you have on your network. This one ships with 802.11n support, which should get high-def content from your media collection... Read more...
When you mention "OLED" and "portable media player" in the same sentence, one of two devices probably come to mind. Sony's OLED Walkman, or more recently, Microsoft's forthcoming Zune HD. But really, there's a media player that's been touting an OLED panel longer than either of those two, and it goes by the name S9. Cowon's quiet yet powerful entrant into the touchscreen media player realm has remained largely under wraps here in America thanks to a dearth of marketing, but there's at least a fighting chance that it'll gain a bit more popularity now that a striking white version has surfaced. Over on Cowon's website, the S9 White Edition has popped up with its very own Web portal, showcasing... Read more...
We're not quite certain what all has gotten into LaCie these days, but we like it. Just a few waking hours after the storage company known for style introduced two more additions to its LaCinema line, the outfit is now debuting its LaCinema Classic Bridge. Designed to be a stripped-down version of its other LaCinema Media Players, this relatively empty box doesn't ship with any storage at all. In other words, you're buying a beautiful enclosure and LaCie's heralded user interface, but you'll have to pony up for your own hard drive. The device accepts 3.5" SATA HDDs as well as media plugged into the USB socket. Also of note, the LaCinema Classic Bridge is DivX-certified, and it'll also handle... Read more...

With the demise of Betamax years ago, VHS became the one simple choice for videos, and remained that way up until the late 90's. VHS has since met it's end, and DVD has taken over as the format choice for most, but that's all changing now. With the release of Sony's Blu-Ray format, and Microsoft's competing HD-DVD format, deciding which format to choose from can be a bit confusing to the consumer. As Ars Technica reports, Warner may be looking to change all that by creating a player to play it all. One has to wonder how much such a device will cost though. "The patent then describes an implementation in which... Read more...

Without question, there is seemingly an endless number of music fans with a massive collection of songs and albums. Unfortunately, managing these impressive collections can be tedious at the very least, to downright appalling for larger compilations of music. Traditionally, music fans were forced to stockpile their collection of CD's in racks or protective folders. Although these methods served their purpose well, it was difficult to bring that collection of music with you. With the dawn of MP3's, the world soon began storing these accumulations of music on PC's. Armed with massive hard drives and competent ripping software, entire racks of CD's soon became neatly stockpiled on PC's. Despite... Read more...
Good afternoon folks! Looking for something interesting to read? How about the 7800GT reportedly having 20 pipes. Need more? There's a good chance ATI's R520 will be available for purchase at it's launch date. Still not enough? Well, we've got plenty more below! Albatron K8SLI Review @ AMD Zone "While overclockers may want to steer clear with only an average feature set those looking to mod, or just wanting some more case real estate for watercooling can take advantage of the smaller depth. You won't find a board packed with extras, or high end hardware, or extra SATA ports. The bottom line is that the Albatron K8SLI is an interesting implementation of the nForce 4 SLI with a low cost, and... Read more...
