Looking for a way to spiff up your iPod? iPod mod company, iPodMods has introduced their new iVue Crystal case mod which lets you see the inner guts of your iPod, while still offering protection from normal use.
One of the concerns about conventional CDs and DVDs is that they will eventually lose their data at some point in the future.
In order to solve this problem, a Japanese recording engineer has developed the first compact disc made from glass.
Apple has admitted to shipping some 5.5G iPods infected with a Windows virus called “RavMonE.exe.” Apparently the virus infected a PC at an iPod manufacturer’s facility and subsequently found its way onto some of Apple’s players.

One of the premier makers of clean and elegant iPod accessories, Griffin Technologies, has decided to lose their minds and release a totally frivolous disco-inspired case for Apple’s ubiquitous media player.

After much speculation on prices ranging from $229 to $299, the Microsoft Zune media player has been officially announced for a November 14th release date at a price of $249.99.
This places it head to head with other 30GB media players such as Apple’s iPod.

After early assumptions that the 30GB Zune media player would run $299, it’s been reported that Microsoft’s “iPod killer” will actually launch at the surprisingly low price of $229.99.

With so many rumors pointing to a $299 launch price for Microsoft’s Zune 30gb model, the question is: Are people willing to drop an extra $50 for Microsoft’s as yet unproven social networking and song sharing features?
Mobility Today posted some up close footage of the new Microsoft Zune media player in action today.
Note the huge album art, and video playback is done in landscape mode to provide excellent widescreen movie viewing.
Hot on the heels of Apple’s iPod announcements, Microsoft has officially taken the wraps off of their Zune media player. As expected, the player can handle both audio and video playback on a 3″ LCD screen that can work in either portrait or landscape mode.
While Microsoft is touting the wonders of the music sharing features of the new Zune media player, I’m quite familiar with a project in which a team from the MIT Media lab developed a similar wireless music sharing capability a couple of years ago.
Crunchgear has broken the news that the initial Microsoft Zune media player will be manufactured by Toshiba, not Microsoft.
The device has been registered with the FCC as the Toshiba 1089. It’s been confirmed that the player features a 30GB hard drive, a 3″ LCD, USB 2.0
I don’t know how I missed this video when it came out back in June…
This guy recorded his call with the AOL anti-cancellation nazis. It would be really funny if it weren’t so sad. Actually, it is really funny…
