What You MEGATech Missed: Ice Cream and Arctic Sound

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these roundups, so it’s quite possible that you may have missed some of the important features that we’ve published here on MEGATechNews.

For instance, you might know about the upcoming launch of Android 4.0. Well, Dylan has taken it upon himself to outline everything you need to know about Ice Cream Sandwich. Beyond the clever (albeit wordy) naming of the newest Android version, you’ll find plenty of cool features.

Looking for real time spellcheck? How about on-board video editing, better copy and paste, enhanced data usage viewing, and the addition of homescreen folders? All this and more in ICS from Google.

Speaking of Android, Dylan also posted the third and final part of his MEGATech guide to rooting your Android device, covering the main methods you can use to root a number of different HTC smartphones, including the HTC Desire S, Droid Incredible 2, and Evo 4G.

It looks like a reasonably straightforward process, but you will want to be careful that you follow the steps as closely as possible. You wouldn’t want to end up with a bricked phone, now would you?

For my part, I lost myself in an endless setlist of killer tunes for several hours on end so that I could provide you with my comprehensive review of the Arctic Sound E461-BM earphones.

Like so many other headsets these days, these earphones are designed with a dual purpose in mind. On the one hand, they can be used to jam out to your favorite tunes with little silicone ear inserts to fit your pair of canals. On the other hand, they also boast an in-line microphone so that you can take phone calls on your iPhone, Android phone, or whatever other compatible phone-like device. Yes, that includes your PC.

Read my full review to get a sense of the design, build quality, and audio quality of these buds. And yes, look how shiny that chrome is!

Last and certainly not least, we have Beth looking out for Mother Nature. Sort of. Well, not really, but you almost feel like you’re being kind to the planet with a product like the Thanko Bicycle Dynamo USB Charger. It does exactly what you think it does.

You pedal like mad on your bicycle as you make your commute to work or ride along the path through the park. Meanwhile, this generates a trickle charge through to a USB port that can then be used to power up your iPod, GPS, or whatever other USB device you have handy. That beats plugging things into the wall and, thus, you are effectively reducing your impact on the environment.


See, being a gadget geek is about being kind to the Earth too.
