September 29, 2014 by Tom in PMP with No Comments.

Developed as a kitchen companion, the 10-inch QOOQ V3 boasts an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor, so it's a little overqualified to just be left on the sideboard for the occasional flick through the free recipes on the Jamie Oliver app. On the cooking front, the QOOQ V3 comes with a kickstand for easy reading, and a plastic shell to protect against splashes and cuts. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat and, as mentioned above, packs an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor clocked at 1.9GHz. There's 1GB of RAM, 16GB storage and a 5800 mAh battery for eight hours of continuous cooking.

ByePod! Apple has killed the iPod Classic

September 10, 2014 by Tom in Apple, Audio, MP3, PMP with No Comments.

The iPod Classic MP3 player is no more. Following Apple's iPhone 6 and iWatch announcements, one of its most successful products has been quietly removed from the store: the click-wheel controlled iPod Classic. Launched in 2001, the iPod has had 13 years good service and became the generic term for MP3 players among the general public and media. 13 years on, the iPod is now officially just a thing of memories and second-hand stores. Things sure moved on with it over the years: the first iPod cost $399 and came with 5GB storage. The most recent model, launched five years ago in 2009, had 160GB of storage.

Supported audio formats include FLAC, WAV, ALAC, AIFF, MP3, AAC and MWA. The 2.24-inch, 320 x 240 display isn't touchscreen so selections are made with the wheel beneath the screen.
