Top 10 song list to test In-Car Entertainment by Audio Engineer

In US, Chevrolet Cruze recently won the Sound-off Competition between other cars with factory-installed audio systems like Toyota and Honda.


Matt Kirsch, lead audio engineer for the Chevrolet Cruze, spends more than 500 hours a year listening to car audio systems. He has made public his own Top 10 list for testing the mettle of our own sound systems.

  1. "Don't Know Why" by Norah Jones. Listen for Norah's voice to sound natural, and centered in front of you.
  2. "Diamonds and Rust" by Joan Baez. Listen for strong vocals, and for the instruments to be set across a wide sound stage.
  3. "No One" by Alicia Keys. Listen for clarity in Alicia's vocals and spacious background sound.
  4. "Hotel California" by the Eagles. Listen for the clarity and dynamic range during the opening guitar solo, and of course the powerful drum beat.
  5. "Boom Boom Pow" by the Black Eyed Peas. Listen for powerful, accurate bass beats, even at full volume.
  6. "Rock that Body" by the Black Eyed Peas. Listen clear, intelligible lyrics over the powerful, persistent bass beat.
  7. "Hide and Seek" by Imogen Heap. Listen for the enveloping ambience of the song, building on the openness and dynamic vocals.
  8. "He Mele No Lilo" by Mark Keali'i Ho'omalu from Lilo and Stitch.Listen for the ambience and staging as the children's chorus is offset by powerful bass.
  9. "Bird on a Wire" by Johnny Cash. Listen for the clarity in Johnny's distinctive voice, and his guitar to sound natural and free of any coloration.
  10. "Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box" by Radiohead. Listen for the punch from the percussive bass, and the ring of the steel drums.

The song list is varied between genres and decades, and its jam packed with a plethora of instruments to stretch the legs on your tweeters, mid-range units and on down to the subs.

Don’t believe? Try it out yourself…

Apple Peel 520 turns Apple iPod Touch to iPhone


Users of Apple iPod Touch could get GSM Cellular features on their existing media player. Absolutely no problem at all, you can add a SIM card and start calling or texting with iPod Touch. Fair enough, you don’t have to queue to buy iPhone when is initially launch by Telco. Just go to your local Apple stores or resellers to buy an Apple iPod Touch and buy one of those China-made 'Apple Peel' turns iPod Touch into a phone.

Chinese firm Yosion Technology, which is based in Shenzhen, has developed the Apple Peel 520 protective case, which will be available online for about $57 with a one-year warranty.

According to a review in Chinese on PConline, the accessory fixes onto the iPod Touch and comes with a dock connector, a built-in 800mAh battery (rated for 4.5 hours of talk time and five days on standby) and a SIM card slot. This Apple Peel 520 will only work with a jailbroken iPod Touch as the Yosion and YsSMS apps have to be installed for calling and messaging, and these will be able to run in the background. The Peel 520 will initially launch with a silicone rubber case, but a plastic version can be expected in the future.

On the negative aspect, there's no auto screen lock when the handset is next to the ear and no caller name/number display due to no Proximity sensor affixed.

During the hands-on test of the prototype, Bluetooth and hands-free calling weren't available. But these will supported on the retail version of the Peel 520. According to initial tests by the reviewer, there is no reported of any dropped calls, although there was noticeable lag before the iPod Touch registered an incoming call.

No Telco Contract, lower unit price and no queue… Now is your choice now. What you think?

RIM Blackberry is ready to tackle Apple iPad

If you are considering to buying an iPad... maybe you should stop and consider the upcoming tablet computer by BlackBerry maker Research In Motion Ltd.

RIM will unveils its new tablet computer with 7 inch screen and new operating system on next week at a developers' conference in San Francisco. Currently, the Blackberry tablet is known as BlackPad. It is scheduled for release in the Q4 of this year. It will feature one or two built-in cameras too.

According to the people who've worked on the new OS. They say it's a worthy competitor to Apple's and Google's platforms, and could go a long way toward addressing complaints that RIM's devices are slow, unstable and hard to program for.

By time, when RIM is ready for announcements and product demonstrations, probably I will have more details on the features of the new BlackPad as well as the new OS.

Check out the table of some existing and upcoming tablet computers after the jump.


Janet Hsieh in support of NCF2010, only $1 per day and you can make a difference!

During the period of my absent in August, I had missed out so many videos and updates on what Janet is up to... Probably that time, I am busy taking photos at Chatuchak Weekend Market or maybe enjoying my oysters in Tasmania or possibly doing some shopping at Melbourne Central.

Looking back... in July itself, Janet joined so many charity activities. God, I wish I am as energetic...


Amazingly, she is doing some charity work for NCF2010 in Taiwan and raising funds for those children having cleft lip.

Imagine the impact of just $1... Only $1 (TWD) per day and you can make a difference for the kids. I recommend one and all here to do some charity work for the unfortunate kids or elderly too (via right channel locally). I bet you will feel the world just differently. Just like one of my friend that he did charity car wash and fund raising campaign for his pledge.

Anyway.... check out the video taken during the ad shooting in Cambodia and the official ads after the jump.
