Just plug the turntable into your PC using the USB cable and the included Soundforge Audio Studio software takes care of the rest. Once onnyour PC, you are then free to listen to them on your mp3 player of choice.

Back in the 60’s Abarth turned ordinary small Fiats into tuned up ‘I want one of those cars’. Today and sadly only for those in Europe (I’m guessing); Abarth are tuning up the all new retro styled Fiat 500.
Due to be unveiled at the up coming Geneva Motor Show, The Fiat 500 Abarth will pack a turbocharged version of Fiat's 1.4-litre FIRE, with maximum horsepower at 5000RPM and a 0-62mph of around 8.2 seconds.
The Fiat 500 Abarth has been slightly modified with the nose pushed forward to accommodate the turbocharger and its two intercoolers. The intercoolers are fed by a deeper airdam with a wide central slit and two side elements.
No word on pricing, but I am sure it will be a hit and will definitely give the BMW Mini a run for its money.

It seems you can get almost anything to plug into your cars 12 Volt socket; radios, TV’s tire inflators, mini fridges, the list goes on. Well here is another gadget to add to that list; Road Pro 12 Volt Sandwich Maker.
It might not be a George Foreman, but its small size might ensures that you could crank out a few toasted sandwiches (provided you also had the bread etc…), the next time you are stuck in that long tailback.

Here is one more speaker dock to add to your list; this time for the Apple iPhone. The Altec Lansing T612 gives you the additional satisfaction of knowing that feedback should be a thing of the past, due to its internal GSM shielding. Once you receive a call on your iPhone, the T612 stops the music and restarts as soon as you re-dock the iPhone. Complete with a handy remote, the T612 looks like a good option for those looking for an iPhone speaker dock.
