Kids Day, British comedy
In brief: MacNN has posted a review of the Logic3 i-Station Traveller speaker system, March 13th marks "Kids Day" at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, and spiritual precursors to Monty Python have launched on iTunes. The only thing preventing the iPhone and iPod touch from being a true multimedia powerhouse is its speaker. The spacious display and storage capacity make watching movies on the go a pleasure- as long as you're using headphones. The Logic3 i-Station Traveller solves that problem by providing room-filling sound in an enclosure small enough to slip into a backpack pocket or purse.
SetteB.IT reports that Apple is hosting a "Kids Day" tomorrow at the main Cupertino office. The event starts at 8:30 AM, and allows parents who work for Apple to bring their children, aged 8 through 18. Apple promises many organized activities, and will take kids through the original and recent history of the company. Among the activities are music creation with Garageband, and a high-tech treasure hunt using GPS systems.
The works of British comedy legends Terry Jones, Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam and others are being published on iTunes, with the recent additions of "At Last the 1948 Show" and "Do Not Adjust Your Set". The comedies also featured the talents of Marty Feldman, Tim Brooke-Taylor, and David Jason, and both shows led to the creation of Monty Python's Flying Circus.
