It's been quite a while since a personal media player finagled its way onto the site, and while eMatic's new eSport Clip is probably a marginal-at-best media player and digital camera, it's worth noting that it's also just 22 bucks.
If you have an Apple Developer account, iOS 5 Beta 4 is available for download. While changes in this version aren't immediately clear, there is one new feature Apple was certain to mention: you can update your iOS device over the air.

We'd gotten a quick look at the Galaxy Player before, but not like this: a nearly three minute video that shows that Samsung's brought a gun to the iPod Touch gunfight.
Cowon is one of those strange companies that no-one really knows about, but actually, their PMPs are usually pretty decent, with great audio quality. The J3 surfaced a few months back, but more details have popped up in France.

The MyFit is a pretty good idea taken unexpectedly to the extreme. A workout player, sure, that's a good idea. But wait, this doesn't just count calories, it measures your fat and forcibly tells you to drink water.
Importers take note: This budget priced PMP doesn't look like much, but she has it where it counts. It being price (about $60-$90) and output (1080i via HDMI).
Unless you've been sucked into the iBubble, you'll probably know by now that Cowon makes some pretty terrific PMPs, like the S9. Its latest model, the V5 HD, has just been outed and promises 720p viewing on its 4.8-inch screen.
Lisse quietly updated its MyRace line this week with a conventional 5-in. 720p PMP called the Lisse H10. Let's take a look:
