BBC Review Four Wifi Media Players

October 10, 2007

The BBC has published a review of four of the top wifi capable media players currently on the market.

The Sony PSP, the Nokia N800, the Archos 605wifi and (of course) the Apple iPod touch.

Gadget lovers are spoilt for choice when it comes to portable media players, with an increasing number offering web access through wi-fi connections. We take a look at four different players – Sony’s PSP Slim, Archos 605wifi, Nokia’s N800 and the Apple iPod touch – and assess their strengths and weaknesses in different categories.

Their winner, well it’s only fair that you check out the article, but it doesn’t surprise me.


RSC South West VLE Forum

October 10, 2007

I am currently at the RSC SW VLE Forum.

This is a really nice event, in which VLE developers and managers from across the South West get together, not just for chatting but to listen to presentations and now and again workshop activities.

Even though Gloucestershire College is advanced in terms of embedding their VLE into teaching and learning, it is always useful to go because I have found out things that I didn’t know, always learning something new.
