Archos to Release Android Tablets


Archos has two new Android based tablets designed for those who want more than a smartphone and less than a PC. Due out in June, both can play videos, music and photos, and can also access the Interweb at prices around $200.00. The 7 Tablet has a 7" touchscreen with built-in WiFi and USB for transferring files. It will be available in both 2 and 8GB models.


The 8 Home Tablet features an 8" touchscreen and holds 4GB memory. This would certainly be a good addition to any kitchen with the ability to download recipes and be used as a digital frame while cleaning up the dishes.

Abbee Music System Omits Ads, DJ Chatter


Myine Electronics has produced the Abbee commercial-free Music System that also gets rid of annoying DJ chat. There are two parts to the device, a base stereo speaker system with built-in FM tuner and Music Lock, a portable player that can record songs from the station and holds about 500 tunes. Of course, there is a plus and minus to the system. The good news is that you get rid of the ads and get your music without subscription while the bad news is that you might get parts of the intro of the song clipped.

Treat Your Pets to 360º Tunes


A farmer claimed that he piped music into his barn as it made his cows happier and they produced more milk. Pet Acoustics has devised My Pet Omnidirectional Speaker that has a 4" drive unit with cone reflector that emits music 360º, the way that they say animals hear it in nature. Recommended for dogs, cats and horses, the speaker will set you back $249.99, a price that would buy a whole lot of kibble. Although the company offers an app for testing the "specially designed" music, we suggest humming to your pets instead.
