Razor iMod Scooter

This "Eurostyle" motorized scooter has to be top of my Christmas wish list. No, not for myself (though I wouldn't refuse if anybody's looking for possible gifts) but rather it is my wish parents everywhere would buy these for their kids. Complete with two full-range speakers, iPod docking station and FM stereo, the iMod from Razor, I believe, could go some way towards banishing terrible teens' tinny tunes. Yes, it would seem that the youth of today must have music wherever they go, so please, people, furnish your little ASBO with an iMod so, though we must be forced to hear their terrible taste in music, it'll at least be of a quality of output less grating. Retailing at $299 exclusively from Toys 'R' Us, this little beauty can go up to 10 miles and 15mph on a single charge. Handily enough, the seat can be lifted to reveal a small storage compartment which for the rest of the world will probably be used for sweets, but in England doubtless equates to a useful place to pop your fags and booze and any little 'extras' you need for a night at the park. I can only pray that January 2009 will see a spate of less musically-challenged drive-by scootings.

BBC iPlayer

The BBC has expanded its viewing options for the iplayer to include an expanded range of portable media players. As of right now the devices capable of playing TV content streamed or downloaded from the popular website are listed as PC, Mac &  Linux computers, Apple iPhone &  iPod Touch, Nokia N96, Creative Zen, Philips GoGear, Sony Walkman X Series, Nintendo Wii, NetGear EVA8000, Linksys DMA2200 and Virgin Media.

The iPlayer site points out that the PMP downloads have been tested on Sony Walkman E and S series, Archos 605 WIFI and Internet Media Tablet, Philips GoGear 52xx series, Samsung YP-P2 and YP-Q1 and Nokia N96. I've used my Creative Zen to watch "Stephen Fry In America" and as techradar points out, any device that supports Windows Media-protected content should work fine.

Of course devices without Wi-fi must download the content (That should be obvious) but assuming your connection is quick it wont take long at all.
