Sanyo Rectangular Albo Frame


Sanyo has a new digital frame with 7" LCD. The Albo has a 800x480 resolution, 500MB of memory and 0.5 mono speakers. Supporting SD/SDHC, Memory Stick and USB, the frame can play JPEGs, MP3s and Motion-JPEG videos. We like the design that proves that a digital frame doesn't have to be a square (well, rectangle) to be cool.

Lady Gaga's Heartbeats


Dr. Dre, move over. Monster, the company that came out with the singer's Beats, has now introduced "Heartbeats by Lady Gaga." Available in black, red or silver, the buds will be out in October and feature ControlTalk, a built-in mic and remote for the iPhone 3GS and iPod shuffle. The flat cord keeps them tangle-free and each comes in its own travel case. Prices will range from $99.95 to $149.95. We like the looks but don't quite get the hype:

"Heartbeats by Lady Gaga are holistically designed to deliver the soundtrack of your life with clarity and power, as well as satisfy your passion for fashion."

Freakin' Friday! Holla for the Beatles!


The memory of The Beatles lives on with the release of their Rock Band this week, as it is practically a historic account of their rise to fame from the beginning at the Cavern Club in 1963. It's hard to believe that it has been almost 50 years since their appearance on the music scene that practically changed the course of music. Abbey Road, Rubber Soul and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band will also be downloadable in the month to come.

Available for Wii, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, Rock Band is available as a standalone, Guitar Bundle and Limited Edition with bass, drums, mic and stand.


A remastered digital Boxed Set that comes with a DVD of 13 mini-documentaries is also available for those who just want to listen and/or watch.
