Our modern media spring from a common source, an invention that is rarely mentioned today but that had as decisive a role in shaping society as the internal combustion engine or the incandescent lightbulb. The invention was called the Audion.

Test Build of Android 2.2 Froyo Running on T-Mobile G1 & myTouch 3G [Android]

When Google says the T-Mobile G1 will never get Android 2.2 Froyo because there’s not enough space for the OS to fit in the flash space, the dev community thankfully doesn’t listen. The folks at the xda developers have gotten a “very Alpha” build of 2.2 ported to both the T-Mobile G1 and myTouch 3G and it’s sort of usable. Calls, 3G, LEDs, and the notification bar are in working order and it’s noticeably speedier. Things that are currently broken: Wi-Fi, camera, gps, and external audio.

Audiophile . That’d be a nice distinction to have. But what makes an audiophile, really? An obsession with high fidelity audio, for one thing.

Couple a white pair of these headphone stethoscopes (or are they stethoscope headphones ?) with a blue pinnafore and job done, you’re practically Jack from Lost. Only, listening to Fleetwood Mac. But no-one needs to know that.

Sony Says Goodbye to Cassette Tapes with a Fancy Boom Box [Cassettes]

There will never be anything quite like the mix tape. For better or worse, it really changed the way people listened to music. So it’s sort of bittersweet to see Sony releasing its final cassette-playing boom box ever.
