The Bric BT, aka the iF330BT, is the Bluetooth-capable portable enhancement of the original Bric iPod dock, featuring the addition of Bluetooth streaming and dual bass reflex ports for added punch on the low end. It’s a competent portable Bluetooth speaker, especially considering it is priced under the majority of its competition
Edifier takes their task of building quite seriously, with designs that fuse audio performance to what can only be described as speaker sex appeal. The company has announced two new designs in their lineup, and both feature streaming options (a feature Apple likely envisions as obviating the need to keep the 30 pin Dock Connector alive). The new additions are the Esiena and Bric Bluetooth, and both bring a healthy dose of design to the standard category of speaker docks.
The experts at iFixit got their hands on the new EarPods from Apple and took them apart to examine the internal contents. They found some exciting discoveries that show Apple took great steps to improve the technology over that of their predecessors.
Phiaton’s Primal Series headphones take the company’s signature half-in-ear earphone design to a new level of comfort and musical precision (though the unwieldy name is still a challenge). With long-lasting comfort and impressive sound reproduction, these are a real winner in the sub-$100 earphone market.
The New York Times is reporting that Apple is secretly working in a prototype device that can be worn as a wrist-strap watch.

Time waits for nobody. Time keeps flowing like a river to the sea. (My girl wants to) party all the time. There have been plenty of songs written about time, and we think it’s time you woke to some of those songs at the time of your setting. And so, at this time, we’re giving away a Stem TimeCommand alarm clock music systems for iPhone, iPad and iPod—a $99.95 value. But hurry, the contest ends Sunday May 8th.
Canada’s “loonie” dollar has been trading at a higher value than the U.S. greenback all this year so far. And unlike with its brief upward spike in 2007-’08—during which time it briefly hit US$1.10—this time the Canuck-buck is forecast to remain above-par through 2012 as well, and perhaps beyond. So, why should Canadians be paying higher nominal dollar prices for Apple hardware (and most everything else) than Americans?
