The Anti-Pod?

10:00 AM -- Weird and wonderful device of the day: The Buddha Machine.

This 23-buck music player is the work of Chinese duo FM3 and it is something like an anti-iPod. Instead of containing masses of your favorite -- and doubtless awful -- MP3s, the duo have composed nine "sound loops," which are stored on the gadget, to make your day go smoother.

Pretty neat, huh?

About the Author(s)

Dan Jones

Mobile Editor

Dan is to hats what Will.I.Am is to ridiculous eyewear. Fedora, trilby, tam-o-shanter -- all have graced the Jones pate during his career as the go-to purveyor of mobile essentials.

But hey, Dan is so much more than 4G maps and state-of-the-art headgear. Before joining the Light Reading team in 2002 he was an award-winning cult hit on Broadway (with four 'Toni' awards, two 'Emma' gongs and a 'Brian' to his name) with his one-man show, "Dan Sings the Show Tunes."

His perfectly crafted blogs, falling under the "Jonestown" banner, have been compared to the works of Chekhov. But only by Dan.

He lives in Brooklyn with cats.
