Mix: MAME, Samsung, Teeth, Vodafone

A new project to port MAME — the Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator — to the iPhone has been launched. No application installer has yet been released; early builds of the application are successfully running games such as Pac-Man and Q*Bert.

Samsung has introduced a 160GB 1.8-inch hard drive, the same size as Apple uses in its hard drive-based iPods. It is unknown whether this new high-capacity drive will appear in any future iPod models.

Japanese researchers have developed a new system that uses infrared sensors and a microcomputer to let people operate music players such as the iPod by clenching their teeth. The system is also able to differentiate between commands and common motions such as chewing or talking.

A new report from Tech.co.uk claims that Vodafone is once again a frontrunner to sign an exclusive deal with Apple to carry the iPhone in Europe. Last week, a product page on the Mobile.co.uk website suggested that both O2 and Vodafone may provide service for the iPhone in the UK.

I have a 3rd gen ipod.  It still works great.  However, I have run out of space.  Does anyone know if it is possible to replace the Hard Drives in this and the newer ipods?  After all, the only real bells and whistles is the software if you still like the interface….  smile

If Apple does decide to put this much storage into a future iPod, it wont prob. be for a while, and there will most likely be a more high-end drive by the time they decide to implicate it into their models.
