Korg has unveiled their new nanoSeries controllers at the London International Music Show 2008. nanoSeries consists of the nanoKEY Slim-line USB Keyboard, nanoPAD Slim-line USB Controller and nanoKONTROL Slim-line USB Controller. All three controllers heavily emphasise both compactness and somehow also functionality with intuitive layouts and bucketloads of controls packed into a small form factor.

WMWifiRouter Turns Your WM Phone Into A Wifi Router

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

From time to time you might catch yourself wondering why you can’t use the Wifi in your Windows Mobile phone to share your data connection to other Wifi enabled devices… or maybe you haven’t. Anyway; WmWifiRouter lets you do just that, and it makes it quick, easy and simple.

Acer Launch The P5260i Professional Wireless Projector

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

Many people who have used projectors are intimately familiar with just what a pain it can be to hook them up to the video source. The office where I work is a prime example, opting to shove an ungainly mass of wires between desks to try and keep them under control. It’s not surprising, then, […]

LIMS: Roland Add “Juno Stage” To Juno Lineup

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

Roland have announced that 76-keys of Juno Stage goodness will be available this August. If you’ve ever read my coverage of the lesser Juno-D you will know this is set to be a solid product at a reasonably affordable price. A couple of interesting features are the inclusion of an 88-note multi-sampled piano and support […]

Gadgetoid Meets Nokia N810

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

The N810 is a prince amongst gadgets, boasting one of the most impressive displays I’ve ever seen for something of its size. It’s […]

Acer Announce Audacious Aspire One

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

Okay, so perhaps it’s not that audacious but it’s certainly got looks on its side compared to the competition so far. The Aspire One is Acer’s first entry into the exploding new Netbook market and sports, unsurprisingly, the Intel Atom processor that allows it to run cool, quiet and with minimal power requirements. If it […]

Never Be Late With The Neverlate Executive Alarm Clock

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

The Neverlate boasts an alarming (sorry!) 21 individually customisable alarms each of which can be assigned to a different radio station. That’s 7 daily alarms for you, 7 for your partner and, presumably, 7 additional ones to finally wake you up after you’ve ignored the other two each morning. I think this more than justifies […]
