 Sharky's Technology Extreme: Most Recent Articles

Sony PlayStation 2 Coverage We've been sweating it out here at the Shark Cave - waiting around for the US launch of the PlayStation 2. Here are this week's offerings in that department: Steve Smith starts his "24 Hours in the Life of a PS2 Drone" with The Bootup (Illustrated), and The Box. Sharky, Ben and Jon have contributed The Lineup, The Countdown and, of course, our original hands-on Review of the Japanese PS2. Enjoy!

Creative Nomad Jukebox Review What if you could carry around 6 gigs of music (150 CDs) around with you in a machine the size and weight of a Sony Discman. It's portable, full featured and powerful. It's a music geek's dream. Add a car-kit and you're good to go for, oh, about 150 hours of driving too.

Nomad II MP3 Player Review The first Nomad player stole the show. It trumped Diamond's original Rio and the rest by offering more than just 32 or 64MB of flash memory, it also offered better headphones (the cool kind that wrap around the back of your head – so very Generation Y), FM radio and voice recording. But it was saddled without USB support. That's why I wanted to get my hands on the sequel.

Palm Vx Review Although PDAs have been around for a while, the Palm Vx is one that gets it all right on the functionality side of things.

Today's review of VideoLogic's new "DigiTheater" speaker kit is different, as it's one of the rare occurrences where a traditional PC-oriented company is attempting to sell products to the mainstream consumer electronics market.

Today we're looking at a brand new six speaker kit from MidiLand that offers five independent channels of sound reproduction, plus a dedicated subwoofer to achieve Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound compatibility.
