WOW, Bluetooth audio system

The XtremeMac Tango TRX 2.1 Bluetooth audio system allows users of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch (2nd gen) to stream their favourite songs wirelessly to the device.
Manufactured by Imation, the TRX also has a dock to hold and charge the iPhone or iPod Touch.
The audio system's two midrange drivers, two dome tweeters and a downward firing subwoofer produce clear and dynamic sound, the company claimed.

The TRX also has five buttons for controlling playback, bass, treble and other features directly.
You can also control the device using the bundled infrared remote or with a Tango TRX application that can be downloaded from the App Store for free.

The app turns the iPod, iPhone and iPad into a virtual remote and is identical to the physical remote in looks and features. The app also comes with a five-band equaliser that allows users to fine tune the audio output.
Also, both the remote and the Tango TRX app can be used to control the device's functions from up to 30ft (9.14m) away. However, the physical remote requires line-of-sight to work.

The audio system also features LED status indicators and a line-in jack for connecting other audio devices. The TRX retails for RM699.

Apple's app store fever

NEW YORK: Apple's app store has hit the 10 billion downloads mark. The milestone was announced on its website on Saturday.

The company has sold tens of millions of iPhones since the device launched in 2007 and continues to expand the use of apps with its iPad Tablet computer.

Its app store has drawn an army of software developers hoping to piggyback on the company's success. The store now boasts more than 350,000 different programs for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Apple said it would give the 10 billionth person to download an app a US$10,000 (RM32,000) gift card to its iTunes store, which now offers movies and TV shows along with digital music files.

The winner is Gail Davis of Orpington, Kent, in Britain. She downloaded a free game app called

competitor for iPad & Samsung Galaxy Tab

Hewlett-Packard(HP) unveiled a TouchPad tablet computer as its entry in a booming market dominated by Apple's iPad.

HP senior vice-president Jon Rubinstein, who was part of the Apple team that brought the world the iPod, unveiled the Touchpad to applause in a pavilion on the San Francisco shoreline within sight of the Golden Gate Bridge.

"TouchPad is more than just a pretty face," Rubinstein said as he caressed one on stage." The TouchPad is all about you; how you work,play, and connect with the things you value most."

TouchPad will be the first  Tablet in a family of product based on a webOS software platform Palm began building from the ground up about five years ago.

HP last year bought Palm in a US$1.2bil ( RM3.bil) deal in what analysts believe  was a move to get its hand on the platform that could make it a player in the fast-growing market for smartphones and Tablet computers.

"No one has come close to replicating our webOS experience," said Rubinstein, who was chief executives of Palm when it was acquired by HP.

TouchPad weight about 0.7kg and has 9.7in display- the same weight and screen size as the iPad.

The tablet is built with a Qualcomm processor that is "screaming fast," according to Rubinstein.

HP did not disclose what TouchPad would be priced at when they debut in Europe and the United States in the middle of this year.

TouchPad software is crafted for easy multi-tasking and supports Adobe Flash software commonly used in online video. The Tablet also features a camera for video calling.

The iPad does not run Flash or have a camera.

TouchPad lauch partners will include digital magazine publisher such as Time and electronic book giant Amazon.

"We are making this a great platform for reading books by partnering with Amazon on Kindle software," Rubinstein said.

WedOS strengths included multitasking capabilities that allow for someone to pause while reading an e-book to take a video call, search out a webpage and print wirelessly to an an HP printer.

HP plans to use global resources to back the TouchPad along with an entire webOS "ecosystem" consisting of soon-to-be-released Veer and Pre 3 smartphones and a line of personal computers built on the platform.

HP said that webOS software in personal computers would complement, not replace, Windows operating systems made by longtime partner Microsoft,-AFP/Relaxnews 2011.
