Tired of all the boring, similar-looking, high-end speakers available on the market? Well, Everything But The Box has got the answer for you in the form of its new lineup of fashionable speakers. Released in Europe last month, the Terra MK3 and Luna speakers are finally available stateside, and boy, do they look fantastic. Looking more like a futuristic concept design than anything else, the Terra MK3 and Luna speakers are some serious attention-grabbing hardware.
Besides the high-quality build and finish of these speakers, the Terra MK3 and Luna speakers are touted to produce high quality sound with “amazingly deep and solid bass, absolutely transparent mids and fresh non-fatiguing high frequencies.” While I can’t attest to the sound quality of these speakers, they’re definitely suitable for people looking for a little pizzazz in their audio set up. The Everything But The Box Terra MK3 ($1,599) and Luna ($799) speakers can be purchased online from the EBTB store.
How many people love using their tablets to control their desktop computers? Apparently, quite a number. Splashtop has just announced that it now has over 20,000 users for its recently released Splashtop Remote Desktop HD for the HP TouchPad. The webOS tablet app that allows users to remotely control their computers as well as access content from it is such a hit that it’s the best selling app for the HP TouchPad. No word on whether the promo code giveaway for the app had anything to do with these figures but they probably did.
Either way, Spashtop Remote Desktop HD for the HP TouchPad is still being sold at an introductory price of $4.99 (normal price: $19.99) so if you’re keen on getting it, head over to the HP App Catalog before the promotion ends. Who needs webOS apps when you can desktop apps on the tablet itself? Find out more about Splashtop Remote Desktop HD.
Motorola and Verizon Wireless sent out invitations for a press event next Tuesday, October 18 in New York City that read, “Faster, Thinner, Smarter, Stronger.” The two companies will undoubtedly be using the event as a platform to announce new devices, as they ask invitees to join them to “celebrate the next big innovation from Motorola Mobility.” In addition to the invites that were sent out, Motorola has also released a promotional video for the impending announcements.

After being announced early last month, TiVo’s latest addition to its DVR line up is finally here. As of today, consumers will be able to purchase their very own TiVo Premiere Elite DVRs. What sets the Premiere Elite apart from other TiVo sets is the presence of four digital tuners and its massive 2-terabyte hard disk drive that lets you record tons of content. 300 hours of HD programming to be exact.
I seem to be reviewing a lot of Bluetooth Wireless headsets lately. There was the Jabra SPORT as well as the NuForce BT-860, and I notice that there isn’t much to say about them other than the fact that they are wireless. I will have to admit that the Logitech’s seems to ignore the traditional [...]

Advertising network Chitika has released internal data suggesting that Google+ has lost momentum shortly after its public availability. After a spike on September 23 and 23, Chitika shows that the Google+ traffic dropped back to previous levels.
While this is interesting, Chitika doesn’t provide much information about its data-gathering technique. Because it is an ad-network, one may suspect that it can see the referrer (Google+) to sites using its ad code. If that’s the case (and I’m not saying that it is), the method is not very accurate but one could argue that they should be able to pick up a (very) gross trend snapshot.
Last week we’ve had a lot of contradicting reports about the Zune player being killed off ? first it was silently announced on the Zune website, then the announcement was removed and @ZuneSupport tweeted that it could have been an error ? today we’ve got another update but this time it’s concrete, and the Zune has finally been killed off for good.
The Zune website now has the message about Zune being discontinued again, and the Microsoft Store now shows the device as out of stock. In addition, the latest official Windows Phone Radio podcast (episode 45) includes confirmation that the Zune HD is no more (around 12:40 in). The same rules apply as before (support for the Zune is still around, just that Microsoft won’t be producing anymore units to sell, so if you see one in the stores, grab it before it’s extinct!).
Looks like it’s the final nail in the coffin for Zune players ? unless of course, Microsoft changes its mind yet again.
Last January I wrote a post “Will Normal Folks Ever Use Twitter?” in which I decried the service from a “regular” person perspective, including the new user experience, search, etc. It’s been almost two years, we’ve seen change of CEO, product team, engineers, lots and lots of cash, and #NewTwitter, but in my opinion, it’s [...]

Last month we reported that the Ovi Store website was no longer using the Ovi logo, and had the Nokia logo instead. Now it looks like the transformation of the Ovi Store has been taken another step further. Nokia has announced on its official blog that the Ovi Store app has been rebuilt and renamed to the Nokia Store. The app has been rebuilt from the ground up using Qt, features a improved user interface, and is much faster than before.
There are so many different types of keyboards available on the market right now, and beyond being more accurate, user-friendly, attractive-looking, how does one make a keyboard stand out from the competition? Well, the folks over at Siine have decided to come up with a new keyboard called Siine Writer, that lets users write messages with more than just predictive text on the keyboard. It makes use of an icon-based system called Siines (signs).
