Nintendo Wii Fit to make us slim!

Nintendo is introducing a pressure sensitive floor device to work with the Wii. There's going to be a game called Wii Fit, and I think it's going to be the greatest thing since plastic plumbing! Check it out here.

Jabra 8010 review

Sorry for that earlier laconic post of mine. I didn't know if I could post from my Comcast account and I would have more then slightly irked if I wrote a lenghthy post and it didn't take. Well, as you may know if you've following this blog, my wonderful Plantronic 590A headphones will no longer charge, thus depriving me of portable music. After the Motorokr S9 debacle (see earlier post) I decided to bluetooth stereo headphones one more chance. Enter the Jabra 8010.

These headphones are exactly how I would have designed stereo bluetooth. One mono earpiece, which can work on its own, conneceted via a small wire to a second earpiece for stereo capability. The mono earpiece has a slick little LCD display to let you interesting things like the name of the device its connected to, what mode it is in (phone, stereo, pairing), if music is playing, if a call is ongoing, etc. No more trying to decode the LED blinking patterns! Someone should have thought of this long ago. (Note to Apple: Feel free to copy this as soon as you feel like supporting A2DP for the iPhone. Thanks!)

Using the God-Awful-But-Really-There-Is-No-Other-Option Softick Audio Gateway, after about 10 attempts I managed to get some music going. However, once some one tried to call in the phone predictably crashed.

After a few more attempts at trying to switch modes, bypass the Audio Gateway, soft reseting the phone, I realized that I will never be able to switch between music and phone calls on my Treo. Ever. (Really Apple, support A2DP and I'll switch so fast your head will spin.) It's not the Jabra 8010's fault, it's the Audio Gateway's refusal to incorporate calls, and to a greater extent, Palm for not supporting A2DP natively in the first place. Is it too much to ask for a 300 dollar phone? It's so frustrating it's making me sick. iPhone 2.0 where are you!?

Good as stereo, bad as headset.

MotoRokr S9 Review: It Sucks!

There's not to review actually: I opened the box, unpacked it, plugged it in to charge it. Nothing happened. I read the manual. It says it might take a minute for the indicator light to turn red. I waited three. Nothing happened. I change outlets. Nothing happened. I pushed the power button. Nothing. I got a brief flicker of hope when I saw a green flash when I unhooked it from the charger, but that's all I got out of it. Sigma Six quality my left cheek.
