Mix: Sopranos, Podfitness, SanDisk, Denon
While it still doesn’t sell its shows on iTunes, HBO has added free video podcasts to promote the sixth season of The Sopranos. The podcasts feature cast interviews and other behind-the-scenes content.
Podfitness will soon offer individualized personal training sessions for iPods. “Using patent pending technology, Podfitness allows you to select a world class trainer and choose your own music to get a personalized audio workout on your MP3 player or iPod.”
SanDisk CEO Eli Harari claims his company’s new Sansa e200 MP3 player is better than the iPod nano: “We feel it’s far better designed than Apple’s Nano… Sansa is priced attractively and has many more features than the Nano. You can view pictures and videos on our unit. We have FM radio, voice recording, a slot to add extra memory from a card, and a removable battery. The Nano doesn’t have those.”
Speaking to T3 magazine, a Denon representative dismissed iPod speaker systems, saying: “These are all just overgrown boom boxes and they only work with iPod. For about £320 you can buy one of our brilliant mini Hi-Fi systems and a Denon iPod dock.”
