EyeTop Wearable DVD System Review

EyeTop Wearable DVD System Review

LiveDigitally has posted a review of the EyeTop Wearable DVD System and we agree with most of their conclusions, especially the part about feeling queasy when you wear it for too long:

"Overall, I felt the Eyetop DVD was a well-made product, with a lot of attention to putting together a complete package. As far as the viewing experience goes, I found the system to be hard to watch, and have a feeling many adults would feel the same way. Which leads me to think the product might be better suited for teenagers or young adults."

Um, make that "teenagers or young adults who don't mind looking like a dork". I won't be buying a system like this until they can make one that doesn't look like a leftover prop from a bad 80's Sci-Fi series.

Yahoo Electronics

Yahoo Electronics home theater and dvd

The first Yahoo! branded electronics (made by Diamond Electronics) have now been officially announced.

The announcement covered two home theater systems (the YHT-630, a $199 210 watt compact system, and the YHT-650, a $269 system with more features) and three DVD players (the YDP-305, a $79 DVD player with memory card reader and USB, and the YDP-700 and 701 which are both compact $99 DVD players).

It is nice to see Yahoo! moving into consumer electronics but this seems like a very cautious entry. I hope to see more interesting electronics from Yahoo in the future like portable hard drive video players and LCD/plasma TVs: Yahoo is all about the portal, so they need electronics that work with (or sync with) the Yahoo! portal.
