Also: A special report on the new FaceTime for Mac.Subscribe with iTunes (audio) Subscribe with iTunes (video) Subscribe with RSS (audio) Subscribe with RSS (video)
As you can see from the pictures, German manufacturer Duevel takes a rather unusual approach to speaker design. I love the looks of these speakers, which are all omnidirectional designs. So instead of the usual forward-firing tweeter and woofer that project sound toward the listener, Duevel loudspeakers project sound in a 360 degree, room-filling pattern. The company offers a vast range of painted and wood-finish options for its speakers.
Duevel speakers have received rave reviews and a number of best in show awards at high-end audio festivals, and rave reviews in European audiophile magazines, but they haven't been covered … Read more

Believe it or not, we manage to make it through a whole podcast without barely mentioning the iPhone! Sure, it comes up just for a second, but we spend the majority of the time discussing desserts that begin with the letter "H". If anyone at Google is listening, we're down to "Honeycake" or "Hamantash" for the next Android update beyond the forthcoming "Gingerbread" release.
Speaking of Android, we spend time in this episode talking about how Froyo looks on the HTC Evo 4G. Kent thinks it looks great, but no one … Read more

Wow, the new Sharp i3 Wall is a lot of TV! I'm tempted to ask who needs that much TV but that would be a silly question. I work for CNET after all!
A few highlights of this beast: It has thirty 60-inch liquid crystal displays mounted 6.5 millimeters from one another. It will cost $550,000 when it launches in Japan later this year. No joke!
Before you start emptying your 401K to be able to afford this (and if you have that much in your 401K, good for you!), keep in mind the equation for TV … Read more
