iPod Alarm Clock

Introducing the 100 billionth iPod accessory: The iPod Alarm Clock Radio from iHome Audio. A great idea that should have been around months ago. You don't need an iPod - any MP3 player can be plugged-in to this sleek unit. Not available yet but get your money ready.

AOL Opens Up

America's largest online service is losing subscribers by the millions. So how are they going to keep up with the Googles, Yahoos and MSNs of the Web? By opening up their guarded doors and give away content.

Just recently AOL is beta testing a new home page that looks familiar to Yahoo and MSN. Plenty of links, search boxes, stories, photos and yes, lots of ads. And THAT is how they plan to make money. Give away content, grab more eyeballs and charge a lot of money for the ads.

Take a look at the new AOL home page. Like it or not? How 'bout their strategy?
