Sony have unveiled a new iPod Nano battling MP3 player in the shape of the NWZ-B160 Walkman Music clip. Desigend to be worn on a lapel or clipped to a shirt whilst exercising, the NWZ-B160 features a drag-and-drop file transfer...
I'm rather a fan of Sansa's tiny 'Clip' range of MP3 players. Although their album-on-a-microSD-card concept is idiotic, their MP3 players are very good, and the miniscule Sansa Clip, with a (relatively) massive clip on the back, is one of the best. Good news then - Sansa has just launched an even bigger version, taking the size up to 8GB.
The player supports your regular MP3, WMA and WAV files, and it'll work happily with music from most DRMed subscription services. It comes with a built-in microphone, and FM radio, and features a dinky-but-very-bright OLED screen. It only weighs 0.9 ounces. If you're dying to get your hands on one then you can - for just £45. It's a decent player, with a decent capacity, for a decent price. You can't go wrong with that.

If you're a swimmer, then you'll know what a pain it is when cases that claim to be 'waterproof' leak, and your iPod suddenly dies mid-breaststroke. Well, here's a waterproof case that has won an award for best iPod Shuffle case of the year, and intriguingly, clips to the back of your head.
Makers H2O Audio reckon that it'll go down to 3.6m deep, and because it's positioned on the back of your head, it reduces "water drag". It'll attach easily to your googles, so it won't fall off, though what the sound quality is like on the attached headphones when you're underwater remains to be seen. Oh, and did I mention it costs £60? Pick it up from the H2O Audio website.

I've got to be honest here. I hate it when people write songs in an attempt to be funny. YouTube is full of wacky raps about this, that and the other. Here's the latest one which tries to encapsulate everything person that's become (in)famous via the 'net. You can have one geek point for every one you recognise. Maybe one to listen to with the sound off...
