supermassive-black-hole-milky-way

Edifier Tick Tock Alarm Clock & iPhone Dock: Don’t Throw It to Snooze!

The world has way more iPhone docks than it knows to do with, but there are always some that manage to set themselves apart from the rest, even if you don’t actually need another one. This particular one tries to merge the design elements of a classic alarm clock with that of a dock. I have to say that it doesn’t look bad, especially given the price.

Sony Retro Radio: Woody and His One-Trick Pony

I stopped listening to radio when I was actually a radio DJ and honestly, I’ve never gone back to listening radio. It helps that I no longer have a car, but I do like these new retro boomboxes and radios that we’ve been seeing. They make such an ordinary device more appealing.

UCI to Phase Out Radios

The UCI has taken the decision to phase out radios in the coming seasons. I think that it’s a good idea. The race will be less controlled by the racing directors and more by the cyclists. Sure, teams are going to be annoyed, but if some basic precautions are taken, it should be really interesting.

Astana pro license under scrutiny. It’s not looking good for Astana, which had it’s pro license revoked in 2008, enabling Spaniard Carlos Sastre of the Cervélo TestTeam to win the Tour de France because Contador couldn’t defend his title. The main concern is because of doping issues. Vinokourov has come back to Astana, and the Kazakh team was made for him. Lance Armstrong is already gone to his new Radioshack team. This leaves Contador on a team that’s going nowhere quickly. I think that Contador should join another team and have them buy out his Astana contract. Apparently, Vinokourov will also be the team director, which is just bad news all around.

This makes Astana a very unstable team. From being on the top of the world in 2007 with Contador’s win of the Tour de France, to having their pro license revoked in 2008 because of doping issues, to winning the tour again in 2009 with Contador and Armstrong getting #3, to once again possibly getting their team license revoked.

If I was on the Astana team, I’d bail ASAP.

Retro Radio Dock: Playing MP3s in Vintage Style

041309_rg_brionvega_rr227_radio_01.jpgA great looking dock is always needed. You need one in your bedroom, in your office, and they can be used almost everywhere else. The trouble is that most docks just look mundane and uninteresting. That’s why I really enjoyed this BrionVega dock and radio combination. It’s based upon a long standing design dating back to the 60s. This Italian designed item might fetch a premium price, but it will attract your eye, no matter where you set it down.
