…It’s Things Thursday: Etymotic Research ety8?

Etymotic Research ety8

Etymotic Research’s ety8 Bluetooth Wireless Earphones are “the world’s first in-ear high fidelity, noise-isolating earphones”.

By using the optional 8•Mate adapter for your iPod, you can send music wirelessly to your earphones, and enjoy the crystal clear sound that Etymotic Research is known for. (They don’t call themselves the “World Leader of In-Ear Technology for nothing!)

The full kit includes a leather case, various eartips, a USB charging cable, and a filter changing tool and filters. Plus, if you’re using these on a device that already has Bluetooth built in, you can skip the iPod adapter and save a few bucks as well.

…It’s Things Thursday: Dell Inspiron Mini 9?

Dell Inspiron Mini 9

Dell calls it the “Ideal Internet Buddy for Surfing, Shopping and Chatting” (and “Your New Best Friend”, and a “Light, Highly Mobile Device Built For Easy Online Browsing and Entertainment” and an “Internet Companion” and a “Small, easy-to-carry device” that’s ready for “teens, tweens, travelers and Tweeters”, so I guess even Dell can’t figure out what this thing does or who it’s for), but if you’re in the market for a mini-notebook (or as many are calling them, a netbook) that’s perfect for on-the-go travel and/or anyone who doesn’t need a full, desktop capable computer sitting on their lap at all times, then you might just call it yours.

Weighing in at just 2.28 lbs., and with a price of just $349 (in Ubuntu flavor), the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 is designed to be the perfect computer for “surfing the Web, chatting with friends, blogging, streaming content, uploading photos or enjoying favorite online videos, music and games”.

It’s also meant to be a durable computer that you can toss in a bag and not worry too much about, with a fully sealed keyboard, and solid state drive (SSD) memory storage.

The 8.9-inch LCD gives you plenty of room for full-sized web browsing, and built-in Wi-Fi means you can connect to any hotspot for instant Internet access.

Options include a built-in webcam for video chat, Bluetooth for wireless connections, and even Windows XP for full software support.

Nifty touches include a free subscription to Box.net for 2GB of online storage, and a full range of colors in the coming months.

The Inspiron Mini 9 is definitely not for everyone, but with the success that Acer has been having with their EeePC netbooks, combined with Dell’s name brand and reliability, I think the Mini 9 is going to open up the world of netbook computing to a whole new audience that’s ready to embrace the change.

…It’s Things Thursday: Jawbone?

Jawbone

Except for a lack of loud, the Aliph Jawbone has always been the best Bluetooth headset around.

So how do you make the best even better?

Simple: Release a beautifully themed line of limited edtions.

Called Sweet Talk, Dirty Talk, and Trash Talk (gold, black and white respectively) they each have a design that smoothes out the usual Jawbone dimples, and features ‘hieroglyphics’ to match the description.

Which one are you?

…Your Mac can be a Wiinstrument?

The Wiinstrument

The Wiinstrument is an application that allows you to connect a Wiimote and Nunchuck to your Mac via Bluetooth, and turns your Mac into a MIDI controlling machine.

After syncing the controllers to your Mac, you make music by simply moving them around. The buttons and directional pad select instruments, and the software even taps into the Wiimote’s motion sensor to vary the sound depending on the speed of your swing.

It’s still in Beta, so there are bound to be a few bugs, but with an open source code, they should get squished quickly.

Ready to rock the world?

Then give the Wiinstrument a try.

…You can add bluetooth to your iPod?

Bluetooth iPod

With the launch of Apple’s Air, they’re basically telling the world that wires are soon going to be a thing of the past.

If you’re already ready to jump on that wireless bandwagon, then perhaps it’s time to do a bit of modding.

By adding a Bluetooth dongle to your 4G iPod (you’ll need a steady hand and some decent soldering skills), you can create an iPod with internal Bluetooth capabilities.

(It also converts your iPod over to flash memory, so it’s a bit of a two-for-one deal.)

Join the revolution!
