    • This record is perhaps U2's finest hour, yet it has been forgotten as a strange by-product of the ZooTV tour's overload, and is generally regarded by most fans as a poor effort. It is this sentiment t

    • Ten years after the original release, comes the traditional celebratory acoustic re-recording. The album has held up remarkably well. While it is not as meaningful to me as it was when I was sixteen,

iRiver H10 Wins Best MP3 Player Technology at Semiconductor Insights Awards

iRiver's 5GB H10 MP3 player beat out Apple's 4GB iPod mini, 20GB iPod and 1GB iPod shuffle to win Best MP3 Player Technology at Semiconductor Insights' annual awards.

Semiconductor Insights, which conducts in-depth technical analyses of integrated circuits and structures, said in a statement that the winner "shows distinct technical advantages over other competitors. It is easy to use and interface with a PC.

"From a component point of view, the H10 integrates the best components with PortalPlayer and Wolfson Micro to provide the audio. Samsung and Silicon Storage Technologies provide the memory necessary to store the music. There are no unnecessary components that increase the bill of material cost.

"Additional functionality, such as FM radio and voice recording, add to the convenience."

Other nominees in that category included Creative's 5GB Zen Micro and 1GB Muvo Micro, iRiver's 20GB H320 and 1GB IFP-999 and Rio's 5GB Carbon and 512MB Forge.

Semiconductor Insights has also handed out awards for Most Innovative Non-Volatile Memory and Most Innovative DRAM. Awards are still pending for Best Handset, Most Innovative Image Sensor, Most Advanced Process Technology, Best Logic -- Mixed Signal Integration and Best RF IC.
