MP3 and CDRW units from Iomega
IOMEGA MP3 devices
| With a name like Hip-Zip you almost have to
wonder how Iomega managed to jam this little pack of cards sized MP3 player
with a PocketZip (also know as Clik) drive in the top. With 40Mb of storage
on the inexpensive little disks, it solves the problem of expensive
flash media for MP3 players. But with a mechanical mechanism now required to
pull the data off the disks, battery life may become more of an issue than
with previous players, even with its reported 12 hours of life from a
Lithium Ion battery. Hooks up to any PC via a USB cable.
|Iomega's Predator is a USB CD-RW drive that while
portable in appearance is destined for the desktop. The hot-swapable
device burns CDRW's at a 4x speed, and can re-write disks at 4x as well.
Reading CD's is capped off at a not so astounding 6X. A IEEE1394 based
version is expected to be released soon.
