Multi-tune Vitamin

May 27th, 2009 by Tanbir No comments »

I’ll be the first to admit that my love for my iPod is nearly boundless. And the new Shuffle design has me practically giddy. 1.8″ by .3″ and the new VoiceOver feature is going to be hard to beat.
However, there’s got to be room for more than just Apple style. A new MP3 player is about to come on to the market that while probably not giving the Shuffle a run for its money should at least make the playing field more interesting.
Introducing The Vitamin from iXing

ixing vitamin

Designed by Sangnam Park, this little pill is actually an MP3 player. It supports only MP3 and WMA files (which means I’m not getting it since my entire library is in AAC format, a far superior format to MP3 imo). It also has a 30 channel FM tuner, though seriously I don’t really know anyone that listens to the radio anymore. Even I get my NPR via the internet these days.
Other than the novelty of its looks I really don’t think it can outdo the Shuffle. But I do think style is a valid consideration when shopping for an MP3 player so I can’t count it out just yet. I honestly like the design. To change tracks you just twist the pill one way, or to go back a track, twist it the other way. I also like the display, which the Shuffle lacks.
I don’t know yet how they are going to manage volume control (possibly on the head phones themselves?).
Also there is no info on the capacity, at least none that I could find. But it should hold a minimum of 1000 songs (or appox. 4 GB) if it wants to be competitive.

SIM Only Deals

SIM Only Deals

While I was browsing the Internet I cam across a very interesting site for those that are currently living in UK. I am talking about http://www.simonlyoffers.com/– a site that offers a service that is pretty useful. By using it you will be able to compare prices and you can simply find the best possible offer you are looking for. Keep in mind that I am strictly talking about sim only offers as this is what everything is based on.

Now you might probably wonder why you would actually use such a web site. Well, for starters prices are checked daily and this translates in the fact that all of the Sim only deals presented are up to date. This basically means that you will get the offer that is similar to that you see in the shops without the hassle of doing the research yourself.

What I particularly liked is the fact that all major retailers are listed. This truly is a site that is filled with offers that are presented for the public. There is no connection with a big retailer in order to present their deals first. You will always see the best possible sim only deals. If you want to put your hand on such an offer then you should visit the web site and see what you are to do. It is truly a great opportunity.

104 years old, Ivy Bean, Twitter’s Oldest User

May 27th, 2009 by Tanbir No comments »

Ivy Bean is 104 years old pensioner who lives at Hillside Manor Residential Home in Bradford, West Yorks. She already has a profile on Facebook, and with little help from Geek Squad agent, Martin Dix, she signed up for Twitter (@IvyBean104). She is perhaps the oldest person on planet earth to publish her updates on the microblogging site.

At the time of writing this post, she had around 14,067 followers with 33 updates. It’s not very important if she is the oldest user on Twitter or not, but it’s really hard to find someone of her age willing to learn and try new online services. She is a source of inspiration to all those who say they are too old for the internet. Kudos to Ivy Bean!
