Windows Upate - Sonique - Rio
- 15:02 GMT - Wearable Gear has posted a review of Diamond's
RIO portable mp3 player. Here is a piece from the review:
not familiar with it, the Rio player is a compact portable music
player capable of playing quality music files downloaded from
the Internet or from CD's. The player is about the size of a
deck of cards and roughly the same weight. Even better, it has
no moving parts so it won't skip. It comes with 32MB of
rewritable built-in flash memory which holds about 30-35 minutes
of CD-quality music (128 kbps). A 16MB external flash card can
increase playing time. Included with the Rio Player is a bonus
MP3.com CD with over 100 songs and other software and music
files. Also included is a single AA battery good for 12 hours
playing time, headphones and a short User Guide booklet. All of
this is available at a reasonable price of $200 (memory upgrade

- 15:00 GMT - Beta Bites takes a look at the new audio
media player Sonique
by Night 55.
With many media players hitting the Internet, what makes Sonique
so unique? Sonique emphasizes a fluid-like windowless design,
and packs the player with a ton of audio and visual features.
Not only is Sonique an eye-catching vision, but this media
player has the controls I want when playing music. Here is a
piece from ~Lockup's~ Sonique
0.62 Beta Preview:
don't want that big Sonique media player open, then change it to
this conch shell-like design. Pretty fancy, isn't it? If you
look in the bottom circle, you can see Eric Clapton singing some
blues. This circle gives you all the information on the track
that is playing. The top circle tells you if Eric can hit those
high notes (not likely) by displaying the voice/sound output.

Technology Inc. announced what it says is the first hardware
accelerator for Microsoft's DirectMusic application programming
interface (API). The Yamaha DS-X series PCI audio chips will
offload DirectMusic synthesis to dedicated hardware, reducing
both CPU overhead and latency of sound generation on Windows 98

Wheel with 4, yes four buttons including the wheel.
Unfortunately, the store only had the Logitech First Mouse+ and
the Microsoft Intellimouse. It turned out that I liked the feel
of the First Mouse+, probably because of my large hands, and my
friend preferred the Intellimouse. After a few days my friend
called and said that he had gone back to his old mouse,
preferring its feel over that of the Intellimouse so he sold it
to me for a good price. My feelings on both mice and a final
