Mix: Plantronics/Altec Lansing, Blogcast, London bombing

Plantronics announced today that it has agreed to buy Altec Lansing, a leading maker of portable iPod speakers, for about $166 million in cash.

Microsoft employees are reportedly using the term “blogcast” instead of “podcast” because of the latter word’s association with the iPod.

Doctors said that Tad Grglewiecz, a victim of last week’s bombing in London, had his hearing saved by his iPod earphones. [via MDN]
