Enter to WIN: A set of Audioengine A2 speakers!

Thank you, we have a winner. This contest is closed. Congrats to faithful Macenstein reader Jason! Just the speakers. 2008 iMac not included. Who like’s winning $200 speakers? Anyone? No? OK, I guess I’ll just have to keep these sweet Audioengine A2’s. It’s a shame, really, because I already have a pair, and they rock. Perhaps you remember my awesome YouTube video (below) of how their deceivingly powerful bass could blow down TWO of the Three Little (Canadian)... Read More

Are the new iPod nano’s experiencing battery problems?

Faithful Macenstein reader Norm writes: “Apple has now replaced my 3rd and 4th new iPod nano 16Gb multi-touch due to shortened battery life. Apple claims 23+ hours. All four nanos, purchased at 2 separate Apple NYC stores run completely down after only 5 to 5 1/2 hours of continuous music listening. No backlight on, no other functions were in use. Apple claims I am the first to bring this to their attention. I find that hard to believe! My stepdaughter just experienced... Read More

Review: Griffin TuneFlex AUX SmartClick for iPhone/iPod touch

In a perfect world, like above, the TuneFlex can position your iPhone perfectly. But not in the Camry… Lord knows the Toyota Camry has its problems, but all the highly publicized defect recalls and deaths are really taking away from the biggest problem the Camry has – namely that there is no decent way to mount an iPhone it it. I’ve tired suction cup mounts which are annoying to have on a window with the various cables hanging down, I’ve tried junky vent... Read More

Apple’s most ironically named event, ever

Well, Apple’s “It’s only Rock ‘n Roll, but I like it” event has come to a close, and it had virtually nothing to do with Rock ‘n Roll, or even music in general. Sure, just about every announcement made today had something to do with the iPod, iPhone, or iTunes, yet it was all about apps, video cameras, price drops, and pedometers. So, what did Apple announce? Well, new iPod touches with more capacity, faster processors (presumably matching... Read More

Review: Scosche’s reviveLITE for iPhone/iPod

For years now I have been wanting to charge my iPods and iPhone in dark rooms, but I’ve just been too scared. Well, thanks to Scosche’s reviveLITE, I have been able to take back the night, and can now charge my iPhone with impunity! OK, that’s a little much. I was going to start this review out by making fun of how companies are adding iPod docks to just about anything these days –including night lights – but the reviveLight actually makes a little bit... Read More

A nano that can hold 47 trillion songs

Fashion designer Sir Paul Smith got a pretty cool birthday gift from his fellow Brit and BFF Jonathan Ive – a giant pink iPod nano. On a sad note, four seconds after this picture was taken the giant pink nano was lost in Paul Smith’s cluttered shit hole of an office. This is one of those cool things that as an Apple fanatic I see and think “Oh my God! That’s Awesome!” and then after looking around my house for a second, I think, “Where the hell... Read More
