Read more: Wake Up in Style: Cue Acoustics Cue r1 RadioThe Cue r1 is an elegant iPod clock/radio with features a plenty and an audiophile pedigree.

Like most modern clock/radios, the r1 has an auto dimming LCD, along with dual alarms and an enhanced AM/FM tuner. Unlike most clock radios however, it features what Cue Acoustics calls, "touch sensitive" tuning which is some sort of tactile feedback mechanism.


The sound is handled by a bi-amplified 3.5 inch high-power woofer/mid-range speaker and a 3/4 inch silk dome tweeter.


The r1's dimensions are smaller than a US "Letter" sized piece of paper and it will ship with a full featured remote.


The r1 should be available in the third quarter with a retail price of $399US, but interested parties can sign up for information updates at the Cue Acoustics website today.

Read more: Cyberlink PowerDirector v6 First LookRecently I bought a JVC Everio HDD camcorder which came bundled with some CyberLink software for editing video. 

This OEM version of PowerDirector Express was easy to work with for a neophyte such as me but ultimately would be rather limited. 

Subsequently I acquired the full version of PowerDirector v6 and checked it out.

Here are my initial findings.

Linutop Mini Linux PC Reviewed - Damn Small Linux Hardware

PC HardwareWritten by Paul Moons on .

Read more: Linutop Mini Linux PC Reviewed - Damn Small Linux HardwareThe Linutop is a small Linux PC. Of course, if you think the Mac Mini is small, then perhaps the words, incredibly miniscule are closer to the mark.

Running a customised version of xubuntu Linux, this little box could replace your desktop for most common tasks, including what you're doing right now.

And if this wasn't impressive enough in a box slightly larger than a Nintendo DS, the Linutop does it all drawing a maximum of 5 watts - That's less than an energy saver light bulb!
