Philips hasn’t been a significant heavyweight in the DAP player market, but they have a new flash based personal media player that is looking pretty swanky.

Available in 8gb, 4gb or 2gb capacities the Philips SA6185 sports a 3.5″ LCD display with a 320 x 240 resolution, built-in speakers, and a 5 hour video life.

Double action search keys allow easy speed control when scrolling through large libraries. You can choose to move through your playlist one song or video at a time or just press and hold down a little harder to SuperScroll swiftly to your desired file.

Other features include Mp3, and WMA support for audio and WMV video file support, all in a 196 x 30 x 214 mm with a .153kg weight.

It doesn’t look like the interface sports a touch screen and we doubt it’s anything near the quality of the Apple iPod Touch, but for WMA and WMV fans this is a nice looking possibility…

On one side the machines are getting advanced day by day and on the other side the data files are being modified too. The new data file extensions are a way to minimize large amount of information into small spaces giving more room to all sorts of data files. At first we had different file extensions for video and audio files but mp4 extension solved this segregation. Now mp4 format is being used in all kinds of electronic gadgets supporting audio and video display compressing the file letting it take less space in your hard drive and allowing more wiggle room to more mp4 extension files.

When digital audio and video was new to the market, file extensions for both of them were different that took more space in a hard drive. Later when gadgets became smaller and storage space became larger, the need was felt to minimize the storage space of files especially digital audio and digital video without compromising their quality. That is when mp4 format kicked in allowing audio and video files to be played with this single format which compresses each file leaving extra space rather than taking it. The mp4 format is similar to Apple’s QuickTime format which supports multimedia files. The only difference between QuickTime and MP4 format is that MP4 format supports QuickTime as well as MPEG file extensions.

As mp4 file extensions take less space in your storage capacity, therefore people felt the urge to convert other file extensions like mp3, AVI, WMV, RM, WAV, MPEG and other digital audio and video file formats into mp4. That is when multiple converter software for mp4 formats was in demand and being downloaded frequently. Apart of their compressing quality, mp4 format files are now being supported by every new electronic gadgets and cell phones in the shops including iPod, Sony Ericsson, Sony Walkman, Wii, Samsung SGH ULTRA Series, iPhone, Blackberry, Xbox 360, Nokia N series, Play Station 3, Zune and many more. The softwares that already support mp4 formats are winamp, iTunes, jetAudio, Media Player Classic, Real Plyaer, QuickTime, VLC Media Player, Zune Marketplace, Nero Burning ROM, 3ivx and some others.

Combo iPod Dock-DVD Player at iLuv

Comments Off on Combo iPod Dock-DVD Player at iLuv

In the past, iLuv has made some speaker docks that underwhelmed PC Magazine – most notably last year’s iLuv i199, which was a victim of trying to do too many things at once.

he new line from iLuv, though still feature-heavy, seems to be focused on simplifying the docks a bit. The i1255 is dubbed a “desktop iPod/DVD player” by the company, and it outputs 5.1 audio from its thin-frame dock. The DVD player also plays CDs, MP3 CDs, as well as JPEG and Kodak picture CDs. The iPod dock is compatible with the new generation of iPods released back in September.

There are no speakers included, so consumers should think of this as a DVD player that happens to have an iPod dock integrated. The $150 i1255 will hit stores in March.

The i399, available this month, is a Bluetooth-enabled 2.1 speaker dock for iPods. Using the included “BluePin II”, a detachable Bluetooth transmitter, users have the ability to stream music from an iPod docked in the i399 to a pair of Bluetooth headphones, or send music from, say, a Bluetooth phone to the i399’s speakers.

MP4 Players Make The Best Gifts

1

The holiday season is upon us, and we are all looking for that perfect gift. How about this year you give them something that they really want, like one of the many MP4 Players out on the market. Now you may be wondering what are MP4 Players, and the answer is simple. These are great hand held devices that take MP3 players to the next level. MP4 Players allow you to not only take music on the go, but movies and TV as well. There is really no end to what we can do in this day and age. This is that perfect gift for anyone on your list.

Although most MP4 Players are made in China, the United States has really grown to love them. Many MP3 players on the market have tried to add video to their list of things they are capable of, however, it usually does not look good. After all, the MP3 Players are made to play music, not so much to watch movies. With MP4 Players you are able to watch movies on the go from a lot of different formats. Actually, most MP4 Players can play files that are MTV, MPV, AMV, and even DMV, however, now-a-days you can even see some that play MPEG-4 files. It really just depends on the type of MP4 Players you choose to get. Make no mistake, however, this is what your family wants for Christmas. One thing that I love about them so much is the fact that they make great gifts for just about anyone. The next time you find yourself waiting with nothing to do, all you have to do is pull out your MP4 Players. Hours of movies and TV shows can be stored right on the MP4 Players. Not only that, whenever you want to change what’s on there, you simple delete the shows that are on it and download new ones. It is really that simple, and most MP4 Players come with everything you need to get started.

iLuv i199 iPod Speaker System

1

It’s not that the iLuv i199 iPod Speaker System doesn’t work, it simply tries to do too much. The result is a frustrating user experience exacerbated by a clunky remote and unintuitive controls. Sure, it has two programmable alarms that can use your Apple iPod. It can also play MP3s directly off a USB thumb drive. It plays your CDs (including data CDs), too, and it has a radio tuner. The speaker is even Bluetooth-capable. Trying to navigate these features via the remote, however, is a lost cause. That’s because the membrane buttons rarely work, and it is often hard to figure out what button is in charge of a specific function. In short, there are plenty of iPod docks available that are much better, even if they have fewer features.

The iLuv i199 has a striking, polished black contour, but it is probably too bulky to win any design awards. At roughly 15 by 7.8 by 5 inches and with a substantial weight, you’ll need a sturdy bookshelf or a lot of space on your desktop for this one. iLuv also covers the i199 in stickers that are hard to peel off. I sincerely hope that my review unit is an anomaly. If not, be prepared for “sticker shock”—and to use Goo Gone to get rid of it all.

The front face of the i199 has a 5- by 1-inch LCD display with a CD slot below it. This LCD displays the time and date, as well as whatever information it can about the music or radio station you’re listening to. Sometimes this means artist name and song title, other times you get only a track number and countdown clock. Most of the controls are on the top of the device. Open the lid to reveal the iPod dock, USB drive dock, and the BluePin connection (BluePin is the company’s proprietary Bluetooth technology).
