New Mexican (Newspaper) - October 2, 2005, Santa Fe, New Mexico YOUR TECHNOLOGY Nano Tubes are cleverly named nano protectors that consist of rubber sleeves that pull over the player none too easily so be careful for smudge and scratch protection standard white earbuds that are an icon ofcooL But an even cooler addop is the lan yard headphones that clip around your neck and hold the nano against your chest It hasthe same earbuds but a clip for the nano that Apple says conquers the clutter of the long earbud wires in a streamlined look You can order it from the Apple site for but you better be patient Delivery time is as long as six weeks Youll have better luck with the iPod inear headphones I prefer these a whole lot more than the earbuds because they stay in better during exer cise Plus wedged in your ear like they do they deliver better audio quality You can get them in 24 hours If you reaily want the ultimate in audio quality used by true audiophiles spend and get a pah of Shures soundisolating E4c headphones www Were talking highdefini tion sound They block out ah1 back ground noise so dont wear these while driving If you want to listen to your nano on the road pick up the Mon ster iCarPlay FM Transmitter www It works on the nano and all iPods except the Shuffle by making a wireless connection to your vehicles FM radio A cool feature with this unit is that it also charges the iPod as you drive And if the frequency you select starts getting interference as you drive around it has a instantly progammable switch that can take you to a clear one If you just want a charger while youre driving Digital Lifestyle Outfitters makes an AutoPod car charger for that will keep your nano juiced while youre moving from place to place What about going inside when you want to share your iPods nano music stash with others Because the nano uses the same pro prietary 30pin connector that all iPods but the Shuffle have almost all of the existing iPod speaker systems that get their audio froiri the dpaccdnnector should work just fine withthe nano The port on the nano is offcenter so it might look a little skewed but Altec Lansings inMotion Logitechs mm50 and Boses powerfully crisp SoundDock are among the many that can handle the nano just fine There are tons of special cases and socalled skins that you can slip over the nano to protect it or dress it up Apple sells a fivepack of multicolored nano tubes that fit the device like a glove for Theres also an Apple armband for the nano also at Pick your color blue green red pink or gray There are some incompatibilities though with some prenano iPod acces sories While the nano does display color pictures it gets from syncing up with your computer you cant use Apples LPod Camera Connector that works with the other iPod models And forget about using the nano to show those pictures on a television as its bigger cousins can do The nanos earphone plug is audio only Those are just some of the nano accessories out there More are coming out every day for like all the LPods its become more than a music player Its a fashion statement Be cool nano users be cool Learn Spanish one word at a time By

language True I can pick up a phrase here and there but my com prehension is way below par One problem with language tutorials is the rate at which the virtual instruc tor speaks Spanish tends to be spoken fast which is why I like the turtle feature in a Spanish language tutorial called Spanish Before You Know It The turtle slows the instructors translations enough that slower learn ers like myself can pick up pronuncia tions So when I try to pronounce los bomberos the I can hear it both as natives speak it and in a kin dergarten This compact disc for Windows and Macintosh computers
