Kenwood claims smallest HDD music player

HD10GB7 Media Keg claimedto be the smallest portable music player based on a hard-disk drive

Japan's Kenwood will soon begin selling what it claims is the smallest portable music player based on a hard-disk drive.

The HD10GB7 "Media Keg" contains a 10G-byte hard-disk drive, measures just 44 millimeters by 62 mm by 17 mm and weighs 78 grams. It has a 1.5-inch OLED (organic light emitting diode) display on its front with a small keypad positioned directly under the display.

It plays MP3, WAV and Windows Media audio files including those with Windows Media DRM10 digital rights management. That means it can play tracks purchased on many Internet music stores.

Battery life for the player is 24 hours for MP3 files and 20 hours for Windows Media files, according to Kenwood. It can also display JPEG images and the user interface can be switched between Japanese, English, French, Italian, German, Dutch and Spanish.

It will go on sale in Japan in early December for around YEN 40,000 (US$344). Kenwood didn't announce plans to put it on sale outside Japan.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
