OMG I just shot the segment for the super sexy-hot Olympus M:Robe 500 today.

One thing, why does my apartment always sound like there is a fire alarm going off? Quality housing in LA.

Ok, so the M:Robe is a sleek, futuristic MP3 player whose main claim to fame is the ability to create slide shows to music on the go. It has a touch interface, a large 3.75 inch LCD screen, and a 1.3 megapixel camera. Because of these simple features, it was chosen as one of the Best of CES this year. I say this because as far as I can see, there is nothing super crazy great about this MP3 player, except its asking price of 5 benjamins.

I will have a complete review here by Friday. But before you go, remember this, slideshows on the go is not always a good thing.' Remember that cousin who travels to interesting places and brings back only pictures of his girlfriend. 'Oh look, the building behind Tracey is one of my favorites' does not an interesting photo make.

I saw the segment Chi... um I don't think it is that cool.. maybe a better way to combine Camera's and MP3 players is down the road.

I just bought a Canon SD200 and took it on my trip to Korea and Indonesia.. but aside from taking lots of pictures of my girlfriend an her family, I also got some great pictures of Bali, Jakarta and Incheon. Over 820 of them.. ha ha I took 1.5 gigs of SD mem.

Dude, that's awesome! When going international you need to be packing the memory.

Canon SD200 huh? When traveling I take my trusty Canon Elph S230 and (gasp) my 35mm.

I am glad you watch. :)
