Normally I go all crazy for the new iPods, but this year… this year they have left me totally cold. I’m not tempted to buy a one of them. I already wrote New iPods For 2008 over at StarterTech, but I figured I can always talk more bluntly about them here. iPod Shuffle While nothing… read more

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) is at it again. I know… you’re all shocked.

Rumor is a new Zune will be introduced on Monday. Wonderful, another crappy iteration of a sub-par player. So… where are the new iPods? The last major line update was September 12th of last year, and that was just a size bump to the main players, the new Shuffles, and color changes to the Nanos.… read more
