Tivoli Audio Announces New Line of Internet-Enhanced Radios

Intended to simplify Internet radio (and bring the wealth of available content to your living room), this stereo system connects to the Web via Ethernet or Wi-Fi and allows you to stream Web radio stations from around the world. In addition to the original wooden finishes, Tivoli is spicing things up...

Microsoft Vine Is Twitter for Emergencies

Microsoft is distracting itself with yet another non-Windows, non-Office product. This time, Microsoft appears to be trying to take on Facebook and Twitter with an alert- and message-oriented social networking tool called Vine. Currently in beta testing in Seattle, Vine is squarely aimed at sharing emergency information and news feeds. A Vine widget sits on your desktop and displays a map of...

How to View TIFF and PowerPoint Files in Your Browser

Slowly whittling down the number of things it can't do to make your life easier, Google has just added a new feature to its Gmail powerhouse -- namely, the ability to view TIFF and Microsoft PowerPoint documents in your browser, without having to save the files on your computer and reopen them in another application. The addition comes just a few months after the company added support for...

How to Turn Your Car Lighter Into a USB Port

If your car lighter is just a wasted hole in your dashboard console, you may want to check out this new gadget from Belkin. The Micro Auto Charger essentially turns your car lighter into a mobile USB port, allowing you to charge all kinds of gadgets with ease. The design is as simple as it gets, with one open port lying flush against the dash. We love this idea, since it means we could leave...

Acer Unveils Slim Timeline Laptop, Plus Desktops, Netbooks, and Nettops

We rolled over to the Liberty Science Center in New Jersey last night for Acer's computer announcement extravaganza. The PC manufacturer announced brand new netbooks, laptops, and desktop lines under its eMachines, Gateway, and Acer brands. Considering the loads of new computer models flashing onto the giant IMAX screen overhead, all intercut with short IMAX clips driven by techno versions of...

Google Voice Launches Today

Google has a vast catalog of wonderful, or at least potentially wonderful, applications. Unfortunately, for every top-notch, constantly-updating product like Gmail or Google Docs, there are plenty of others languishing in desperate need of attention, like Google Talk. But if there was one product that we thought most desperately needed attention, it was GrandCentral. GrandCentral was an online...

Apple's New iPod Shuffle Talks to You

Bam, another Apple rumor vindicated. Apple just doubled the capacity of its iPod shuffle to 4GB while ditching the control wheel entirely. The new design keeps the clip and adds VoiceOver -- a new feature that gets around the lack of display by telling you which song is playing and who performs it at the touch of a button on the earbud cable. It'll also call out your playlists and let you...

Hype Check: Amazon Kindle 2 (Hands-on Review)

We were able to get our hands on an Amazon Kindle 2 a few days before today's ship date. The next-generation e-book reader is lighter and thinner, has a longer battery life, and now includes text-to-speech capability, but for $359, is it worth upgrading from the original? More importantly, is it ready to replace your books? (Possibly, if you plan on reading or buying 72 books in the next...

Nintendo DSi Coming to North America on April 5th

According to the good chaps over at Joystiq (and, you know, Nintendo), you can get your grubby mitts all over the DSi in North America come April 5th. The system will launch for $169.99, will include all the goodies you've been reading about -- like those dual cameras and downloadable content called DSiWare (starting at the totally mysterious price point of 200 DSi Points). The handhelds will...

Canon Launches 10 New Cameras

Not to be outdone by Sony, Samsung, or FujiFilm, Canon has unveiled nearly a dozen digital cameras bound for the US ahead of March's PMA. Of the ten, the big guy is that 10 megapixel SX1 IS we originally heard about last September, which sports 1080p Full HD movie mode and a built-in HDMI connector. Not too far off is the SX200, SD970 and the already-leaked SD960 / SD780, which all record 720p...

Samsung 'Beat DJ' Mobile Phone Lets You Remix Tracks on the Go

As if a giant billboard wasn't enough of an unveiling, Samsung has released some official shots of its M7600 "Beat DJ" touchscreen handset. Like we knew already, the Quadband GSM / HSDPA music phone sports a 2.8-inch AMOLED touchscreen display, GPS, 3 megapixel camera, and Bang & Olufsen amplifier. It's also got codec support for DivX and XviD, microSDHC card slot for up to 16GB, Bluetooth...

T-Mobile to Release 8-Megapixel Memoir Cameraphone on February 24

At this point, it's tough to say the Memoir wasn't official with a straight face, but Samsung and T-Mobile have jointly disclosed all (er, most) of the remaining details that were so sorely missing here at Mobile World Congress. The 8 megapixel handset will boast a Xenon flash, CMOS auto focus and 16x digital zoom, not to mention a full touchscreen and a sophisticated camera menu that enables...

Google PowerMeter to Let You Track Electricity Usage

The New York Times is reporting Google will announce a free web service tomorrow called PowerMeter that'll let users track energy consumption in their homes or business, provided there's a means to upload the data. That part of the equation's gonna be up to other companies to create compatible devices, and while no manufacturing partners have been named, we'd suspect strange bedfellow GE will...

Stephen King Joins Amazon to Unveil Kindle 2 E-Book Reader

Say goodbye to the Speak-and-Spell look of Amazon's Kindle, because this morning the company's co-founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos, and author Stephen King unveiled the Kindle 2, a slimmer, slicker, and lighter successor to the original Kindle that launched about 14 months ago (and which has already become one of Oprah's favorite devices). Besides the size and weight shrink, the main new feature on...

New Google Earth Dives Into the Ocean

Google Earth is one of our favorite toys (time-wasters) here at Switched, and on Monday Google unveiled its updated version 5.0 (beta, of course) of the software. It's packed with so much new content that we're amazed we've managed to get anything done this week. One of the features that has everyone "ooo"ing and "ah"ing is the new underwater imagery. Instead of merely flying overhead, you can...
