iPods are fantastic, but the most important part of any mobile music
experience is the earbuds or headphones that you connect to your
device. Plenty of people are happy to use the stock Apple iPod earbuds,
but many are less than thrilled by their sound quality--or the fact
that those hard plastic ’buds aren’t the most comfortable things to
stick in your ears. Yurbuds are soft rubber eartips meant to work with
your existing phones, offering better fit and improved performance.
Color us unimpressed. While supposedly AT&T has been dumping money
into their 3G network to boost its capabilities (are you guys working on
4G yet?), it's still hard to get a signal inside many buildings. While
it's more than you need to know, let's just say that some of us can't
even get a signal in our own bathrooms.
Yeah, it's that bad. And
that's why AT&T's announced 3G MicroCells don't really excite us.
It seems that nearly everyone in the corporate world is convinced the iPad will change the world, with the latest being one of the major television networks, who appear to be readying iPad-friendly versions of their videos.
As iPad availability creeps closer and closer for consumers, speculation
over the purchase cost of iBooks via the iBookstore continues to be a
hot topic of debate amongst Apple enthusists and biblophiles alike.
The first time I put on the Synapse (which Tom Bihn sent to us in an electric purple called “Plum”), Robbie called from across the office, “So you finally joined Prince’s New Power Generation?” Sigh. All kidding aside, finding a great bag for your MacBook is challenging. Messenger bags are stylish, but lugging a full one around all day can get tiring. Tom Bihn’s Synapse is a compact backpack that’s easy to carry, fits a MacBook, and offers a well-thought-out design that’s a step above your average backpack. And it’s available in many other shades--assuming that you don’t actually want to be mistaken for The Purple One, that is.
