Motorola Connected Music Player for Android is packed with awesomeness

motorola connected music player android Motorola's new Connected Music Player isn't the first leaked audio app we've seen -- but it's certainly got a leg up on the one we saw from Google. CMP goes way beyond shuffling through your music and video library, building in a ton of (predictably enough) connected features.

Let's start with the radio. CMP includes both SHOUTcast integration and the ability to tap into your phone's FM radio hardware. Soundhound support is also built-in, allowing you to identify unknown tracks anywhere you've got an Internet connection. The video tab will play your locally-stored videos and it's also got a YouTube search option -- though it's limited to finding music videos. The app's Community section leads you to TuneWiki charts, and Twitter and Facebook audio hotness courtesy of Blip.fm. It also features a cool Music Maps option, which lets you see who's listening to what -- either near your location or anywhere else in the world (my neck of the woods is unsurprisingly quiet and showed only me).

From the player's now playing screen you can Blip what you're listening to, add the track to a playlist, delete it from your library, or set it to your ringtone. Want to gently drift off to sleep as you listen to your playlist? No problem, just head to the settings screen and set up the sleep timer.

Ford's intelligent vehicles communicate wirelessly, shoot hula hoops out of tailpipes (video)
Imagine how many accidents could be avoided if we all had perfect X-Ray vision -- assuming, of course, that everyone could refrain from being distracted by all the naked pedestrians. Drivers would never be surprised by rapidly slowing traffic, cars broken down around blind curves, or autos zooming into blind spots. No matter how many ads we respond to in the back of Mad Magazine we'll never have that, but Ford has an alternative with its Intelligent Vehicle Research: cars that simply rely on GPS and a wireless data connection to beam their location and speed to each other.

Autos alert their drivers when a car at the front of a convoy is rapidly decelerating or when there's a broken down rig right around the next bend. Interestingly the tech is using WiFi, not cellular data, so range is somewhat limited, but still far enough to warn drivers with blinking lights or trigger an automatic-braking system. It's all demonstrated in the video after the break and, while there are no crazy platooning stunts like Volvo recently showed off, we have to figure that's coming in version 2.0.

Sony's NGP / PSP2 has a quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor

You know that crazy next-gen PSP with multiple touchpads, dual analog sticks, and quadrupled resolution that Sony just trotted out? Yeah, it's got a quad-core Cortex-A9 doing the gruntwork within. Color us overwhelmed with excitement. Then again, considering the darn thing won't be launching until this holiday season, maybe quad-core is the least Sony will need to do to match up to "super phones" coming up this year. Full spec sheet at the source link.

Kinect 3D Viewer now available in Mac App Store, but don't get too excited

Kinect 3D Viewer
The first Kinect app has just popped up in the Mac App Store, but unfortunately it does exactly what its name suggests. Kinect 3D Viewer lets you... view the output from the Kinect depth-sensing camera... in 3D!

It actually has two output options: you can either see a 3D point cloud, which excellently shows off the resolution of depth detection, or you can "view yourself in 3D", which looks very similar to the proof-of-concept Linux/Kinect hacks that we saw in November. There's no information about how the Kinect integration was achieved, but presumably the developers used a Mac port of libfreenect.

Hopefully there will be a follow-up app that actually does something -- but having said that, how many Mac users with Xbox 360s can there possibly be?

The bottom? Really?" I thought Apple was the new darling of Greenpeace. I thought Apple was working to remove toxic chemicals and processes from its products.

Electric Mazda2 coming to Japan in 2012, no you can't drive it

Electric Mazda2 coming to Japan in 2012, no you can't drive it
Mazda has been toying with an electrified version of its Demio compact (known as the Mazda2 'round these parts) since at least last year, and now it's announcing plans to start some serious production of the 200 kilometer (125mile) range autos, putting them up for lease by spring of 2012. There are a couple of catches, though: these are only for the Japanese market and, if that weren't bad enough, they'll only be available for fleet sales. So, unless you're looking to buy a couple-dozen for Bob's Heavy Industries you're out of luck. For now, at least.

Keen On? John Borthwick: The New Medium Mogul Behind Bitly, TweetDeck, Chartbeat, and SocialFlow (TCTV)

As the CEO of betaworks, John Borthwick is one of the most influential architects of the social web. Borthwick, who used to run technology strategy at Time Warner, co-founded betaworks as a new medium company for the social economy. Today, betaworks is a network of around 30 companies ? including Bitly, Tweetdeck, Chartbeat and SocialFlow ? all, in Borthwick?s words, ?loosely connected at the data level.? Just as betaworks is a new medium company, so Borthwick is a new medium mogul. Richly networked (note the unscripted appearance of AOL chief executive Tim Armstrong ? a betaworks investor - at the end of the second video), the understated Borthwick is a master not only of social media technology, but also of knowing the right people in today?s social economy. This may explain why betaworks is based in networking capital of the world, New York City, and why Borthwick?s chairman is Ken Lerer, the co-founder and chairman of the Huffington Post. Video ahead.

Nook Color overclocked again--this time all the way to 1.1GHz!

On this latest episode of :That eReader does WHAT??" the Nook Color's 800MHz processor has now been overclocked to a full 1100MHz.  Currently only for the rooted stock Barnes & Noble ROM, the new custom kernel adds some serious zip, and appears to be quite stable.

Our quadrant scores with the kernel max out in the mid-1200's, which are easily the highest we've seen on stock Eclair (overclocked Nookie Froyo yielded 1764).

The new kernel, from developer dalingrin, is easily flashed by downloading this zip file, placing it on your Nook's SD card, and installing in ClockworkMod Recovery.

After checking it out, be sure to stop by our Nook Color forums to give feedback and find out more. [xda-developers]
