Police auction iPods

In brief: A police auction site offers cheap iPods, M-Audio teaches Torq, WWDC comes in handheld form, and Sonnet takes home an NAB award. The site, which specializes in goods from police auctions, has just begun carrying more inexpensive iPods. It has signed an agreement with NextWorth, a company which handles customer trade-ins from retailers; the result is that numerous used and "like new" iPods will go on auction at PropertyRoom, with bids starting at just $1. Current auctions include a 4GB iPod nano and a 30GB iPod video.

M-Audio posts Torq tutorials

The makers of the Torq DJ system have produced a series of video tutorials for the product. Topics range from basic hardware and software setup to more advanced concerns, such as the Amputate mode and Quick Scratch. There are 31 tutorials in total, and all are free to watch on the M-Audio website. The company recommends the clips for those considering Torq as well as those who already have it.

WWDC on the iPod

Expodition, which produces "Pod SnapShots" for travellers, has made available a new guide for the June 11th Worldwide Developers Conference. Once downloaded and copied to an iPod, users can browse schedules, FAQs, travel information and more. The Tracks section of the guide provides descriptions for every Session and Lab at the event. The download is free.

Sonnet touts NAB honors

The winner of the Broadcast Engineering Pick Hit at the recent NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) expo was Sonnet, which is using the award to market its SATA storage arrays. Models extend from the D400Q and R400Q four-drive systems all the way to the D800RAID, an eight-drive array which can hold between 4 to 6TB of data. It is also configurable for 13 different types of video streaming, from DV to 2K LOG RGB. Buyers must contact Ingram Micro to learn prices and availability.

    Cheap iPods, NOT!!

    The bid on the 30gig video iPod is already up to $215. By the time the bidding stops the person could just go to the Apple store and buy one for the same price. So don't expect anything cheap from an auction.

    Here's why you don't want Apple has 30gig refurbished video iPods for $199 right now. Like I said you don't get anything cheap at auctions. At least if you buy a refurb it comes with a warranty too. You won't get anything with the auction purchase except maybe someone telling you are a sucker.
