Music biz muppets again…sigh!

The RIAA (Australia?) is now threatening to sue the Red Cross? Who next, the Pope?  But Speck says it will simply ask the Red Cross to freeze the fund until a legal outcome in the Australian court case is reached, and hopes the charity will cooperate. “It would be incredibly disappointing if we had to sue them,” he says.

Put n’ Reel.

The Vivadi Saturn. The name may make it sound like a downmarket Korean SUV, but it’s being billed as the world’s most advanced television set. Well they might have a point since it sports a 46 inch twin tuner plasma TV with integrated 200GB Media PC/PVR, DVD Recorder, Internet/email access and add-on flat panel NXT speakers. It’s very cheap too. Just £15,999.00 for the basic system with the optional NXT’s coming in at a paltry £7,999.00. Hah, chump change. Unsurprisingly it’s for sale at Harrods!

TV Ears.

TV Ears. Hey, super useful they may be, but as a tech design statement these things don’t speak to me at all. Know what I mean? At any volume. $169.95.  Great for people with mild or moderate hearing loss, the TV Ears allow you to clearly hear the TV without turning up the volume. This is accomplished through the use of voice-enhancement technology, which raises hard to hear words above the program’s background sound so they’ll stand out…Automatic volume control (AVC) automatically reduces…

Blaster masters.

Project T. Blasters. $7.99. This Ferret doesn’t really get LED gidgets like this. But then again, somebody must. Somewhere.  Project T’s, our latest model, are the best looking glasses out there!! (both by day and by night!) A streamlined bolt of EL light at the top is beautifully reflected by the transparent colored lenses.(The lenses are actually the same color as the light- even during the day!!) With a high quality frame, and lenses that provide 100% UV protection, “Project T’s”…

PhotoBlocker Spray. $29.99. Really? I remember back in the day when there was all this talk of hairspray being able to do this. Smoke and mirrors, or a real advancement for medical science? Only you, dear reader, can be the judge. Check out also the company’s range of ‘photoshields’.  Reflects photo radar flash. Spray it and make your license plate invisible to cameras. Proven to beat photo radar and red light cameras. Photo radar cameras often utilize a strong flash to photograph…

Glow girl, glow.

Cactus Light. $35.00. “Oh, it’s lovely dear. Er..what is it?”“It’s a cactus, ma, glows in the dark.” “Ah I see. Er..thank you darling.
