by on Jul.17, 2009, under Gadgets, News, Technology

Bose has launched it’s new SoundLink system, designed as a simple solution for people who listen to music stored on their computer, but don’t want to be at their computer to enjoy it.

Bose SoundLink Wireless Music System

Setup is quite easy. No software or Wi-Fi connection is required. Just plug the included SoundLink USB key into the computer, select music — from iTunes®, Pandora®, or any other Internet radio or music source — and the audio will stream to the SoundLink system via a long-range wireless link that works through most walls and floors.

The Bose SoundLink system unlocks that music, streaming it almost anywhere in the home –- even outside –- quickly and easily.

For added flexibility, a rechargeable lithium-ion battery is included, making the SoundLink wireless music system truly portable. It’s charged by the system’s AC power supply — no outlet is required. The battery provides all the power the system needs for up to three hours when played at full volume or for longer periods at more moderate listening levels.

Advanced Bose engineering in electronics efficiency and speaker design enable the same high-quality audio performance whether plugged-in or operating on battery power. The SoundLink system features a proprietary acoustics package, which combines exclusive Bose waveguide speaker technology and neodymium transducers to deliver room-filling, high-quality audio from a very small enclosure.

The system’s infrared remote control operates the power and volume, and can send transport control commands to most applications, allowing users to skip tracks or play/pause from a distance. Touch-sensitive volume buttons also are located on the unit itself.

Although designed primarily for wireless connectivity to a computer, the SoundLink system features an auxiliary input for connecting additional audio sources, including an iPod, iPhone, MP3 player or CD player.

The new SoundLink wireless music system comes in Gloss Black, and will be available from Bose beginning August 27, 2009, for a price of $549.95. It will be sold at authorized Bose dealers, Bose retail stores, or

LG Chocolate BL40 spotted

by on Jul.17, 2009, under Gadgets, Mobile, Technology

Remember LG CHOCOLATE BL40? After an officially released teaser last week, but first time there came few photos on the internet. To make things even better LG device with similar styling has also came along.

This might be LG BL42 which appeared last week. Even a few specs have also been revealed – a QVGA screen, capable of displaying up to 65K colors, 3G capabilities. It also mentions 3 softkeys but as it seems from the photos they’re probably not physical.

This is not entirely surprising as the original Chocolate was one of the first phones to feature a touchpad instead of regular softkeys. So if the LG BL40 and BL42 are to be its successors they should follow the same suit.

There’s also few interesting facts that we noticed, both the LG BL40 and BL42 have several entries, with suffixes like TMO, O2, VDF and others. Doesn’t those sound like any carriers? There might be a possibility that you favorite operator is receiving its own customized version sooner than you can think.
