CES: The Beat Goes on With the Pacemaker DJ

LAS VEGAS -- A new device Gadget Grrl found at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is called the "Pacemaker DJ." It is not a medical device. It is a handheld gadget with which you can mix tracks, mash up albums and store them all at the same time.

Next, another new find from the Consumer Electronics Show is this new site, Short Covers (currently in beta mode). It will feature all kinds of pieces, long and short, to read. They intend to have a mobile version of this up as well.

We'll look at the beta later. Now, more about the Pacemaker.

Music devices have been a popular trend in consumer electronics. It's a trend that will probably go on, given the success of things like "Rock Star." More and more users don't have the time or desire to become musicians themselves, so hardware and software that allows them to create and/or play music is in high demand.

A new device I found at the Consumer Electronics Show is called the "Pacemaker DJ." While the name might be confusing, it is not a medical device. Manufactured in Sweden, this is actually a handheld DJ device that enables you to mix tracks, mash up albums and store it all at the same time.

The model I saw had a 60GB on board, which could easily hold 15,000 songs. The Pacemaker DJ resembles a flat dumbbell with two separate sides, one for the controls, the other for creating the music tracks. It easily fits in the palm of your hand and the programming is very intuitive. If you've ever wanted to play DJ, this could be for you.

Another new find from the Consumer Electronics Show is this new site, Short Covers (currently in beta mode), which will feature all kinds of pieces to read -- long and short.

They call it the "Kindle Killer" because you'll be using your laptop or mobile device to read. They intend to have a mobile version of this up as well. Consolidating gadgets is a good idea, especially if you can get more use out of the ones you currently own.
