News – Amazon‘s MP3 downloads launch worldwide as iTunes shudders… This is big news since Amazon sells DRM-free music, at a lower cost. I have been using iTunes since it came out, and I have to say buying music without restrictions is great and I even save a few pennies.

HD-DVD  goes for it’ at the Superbowl. With all the major studios jumping on the Blu-ray band wagon, Toshiba has cut prices on its HD-DVD players and even has plans for a 30-sec commercial spot during the “big game” for a mere $2.7 million! Good luck Betamax, oops –I mean HD-DVD!


Rumor – The word around the geek cooler: the MacBook Air will be in Apple stores this Tuesday or Wednesday. Yippeee?


Gadget of the week – Party like a RockStar! For only $19.99 this unique hub has five ports to attach headphones or MP3 players, including one hard-wired connection for your MP3 player. Plus, you can mix your favorite hits with fade-in effects. Gather up your friends and get ready to party, or at least listen to some tunes together.


Tip – I am not sure if this qualifies as a “tip” but it is cool and fun. Have you ever wondered what you would look like if you were a Simpson? (The cartoon, not the acquitted killer). Well – wonder no more, my friend!
