Freakin' Friday! Virtual Home Theater Glasses


You know if Oprah digs it, it is a must have. A prime example are these Virtual Mobile Home Theater Video Glasses. Connect to a portable DVD player, iPod video, game console or TV tuner and you get a glorious 50" worth of viewing on its virtual TFT-LCD screen that appears at a 2M distance. We can see this as a must have for frequent fliers or traveling toddlers who keep asking, "Are we there yet?"

MinoHD Holds 2 Hours of Video


We have extolled the virtues of our Flip Video before and they have released a new one in time for the holidays. The MinoHD captures up to 2 hours of video on its 8GB of memory. Compatible with PC or Mac, they have updated their FlipShare software so that it super simple to edit, and upload. We especially appreciate the still-image capture. Pick a frame, drag and drop, and you get game picture.

The AntennaWeb Mapping Program

We found a dandy little site set up by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) that locates the best antenna for you in your area, whether you have a home satellite system, HDTV or analog set. Put in your zip code/address and it will also locate stations that you should be receiving since the digital transition as well as the best placement of an antenna.

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.
