Shrek MP3 Player

Almost everyone has been impressed with Shrek, an ogre whose character is peace loving. Therefore the MP3 player which looks like the head of Shrek, can also interest you. Delicately designed, two chic headphones are placed inside the slot on the top, and you can adjust the length to your real need.

Pill Shaped MP3 Player

Portable MP3 players is one niche that has seen a significant reduction in size and the pill shaped MP3 player just continues the miniaturization process.

From the picture, you can get a feel of just how small this device is, but if you want to get exact, it is 2.7 inches in length and 1 inch in diameter. In order to control the music player, you do need to pull on the two ends of the hard capsule while twisting it in either a clockwise or counterclockwise direction.

At this time, the pill shaped MP3 player is a conceptual gadget, still in the prototype stage, but production is anticipated for later this year. I’m sure you’ll also be able to get them in a variety of colors such as red pills and blue bills, just be sure not to mix it up with any prescription medication you may have lying around the home.

SFR Hubster WiFi Home Internet Tablet

The SFR Hubster has entered into the trial period throughout France in an effort to capture market share from Orange France.

As anticipated, the Hubster tablet includes a touchscreen display and offers the user the ability to stream digital video, audio and pictures across the home network by either a wired network connection or a WiFi connection.

The tablet supports voice reminders (or digital memos) as the onboard voice recorder has the ability to capture audio that can then be played back at a designated time using the Hubster playback feature.

Support for streaming TV is also included. Although details are sketchy, it appears this will be streaming internet TV as opposed to streaming through a TV tuner card.

The Hubster will accept SD, SDHC and MMC cards and supports MP3, WAV, WMA and RA audio files and FLV and MP4 video files. Expect to see the Hubster in stores on June 15th for $182.
