This picture of 2-nd generation Nanos is dated September 12-th, 2006 while those glossy Sony’s digital cameras are freshly baked.

Whether Sony’s designers and art directors are Apple fanboys or it’s just a custom and usual industry steal, Sony should change it’s motto to like.no.other.except.some.

Sony has announced some changes in PS3 prices! The 80GB model now costs $499, instead of $599. The lower-end model with a 60GB drive was for $499. So the new 40GB one will debut on November 2 for $399. The new 40GB one won’t be able to play games made for the PlayStation 2. The 40GB model has been much anticipated after Sony announced it for Japan and Europe. So the PS3 is cheaper but not the cheapest.

The Xbox 360 costs $350 and Nintendo’s Wii is $250. Sony has sold 5 million PlayStation 3s since they went on sale in November last year.

sony_headphones.jpgThese headphones are a dreamthing. Wireless and clear in sound output, these are known to isolate all the sound around so that you can enjoy a perfectly clear sound output, wirelessly. Support wireless protocols like A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, and HSP. With a support for operating frequencies between 20 and 20,000 Hz, the headphones also promise high fidelity sound and a playtime of 17 hours before the next charge. This one’s called the DR-BT50. And there is a lighter weight DR-BT21G. It weighs a mere 63 grams and comes in black and white colors.

The price is still unknown but what we see here is a probable favorite of the season

sonymdr_nc60.jpg If you need new headphones, noise canceling technology is sure to wow your friends if they ever take a look. While the prices for noise canceling are constantly falling, take a look at these nice new Sony headphones. The MDR-NC60 has been released in Japan for about $200. These noise cancelers make sure that those pesky people surrounding you will not be a problem anymore.

So what else does $200 get you? One thing is better quality padding around your ears, which provides for a better and more comfortable seal to help keep your music in and other sounds out. Another cool little addon is the airplane adapter so that you can plug your MDR-NC60 into those odd jacks. AAA batteries fuel the headphones for about 30 hours, a good deal longer than the longest plane ride. And if the people around you are all asleep (one can only dream), just turn off the noise canceling to save power.
