Looks like it’s a bumper day at the Philips factory, with two more systems falling off the assembly line. This time, it’s micro DVD players. The 2.1 MCD802 (left) packs wireless subs, two 200W speakers and can record MP3s from any input source. It’s also DivX friendly, which is handy if you download and burn your own movies. The MCD388 (right) is wall-mountable, and will upscale your flicks to full 1080p HD. The MCD802 is US$325 and MCD388 is US$245. Both are available right now.
Two new decent looking iPod docks from Philips today. The DC910 has a rotating dock, letting you twist the iPod from portrait to video landscape mode, with dual wOOx speakers that boost bass. While the DCM250 is a total micro hi-fi with iPod dock sat atop its sleek silhouette. Both will take music via USB, and the DC910 even packs SD/MMC slots for your digital tunes. They’ll cost around US$135 and US$165 mark, respectively.
Just in case you’ve been living under a rock this month (or worse, haven’t got the July issue of Stuff), Philip’s latest GoGear line-up is worth having a look at. There are five players in total, all with Philips trademark FullSound technology that enhances tunes with fuller base, instrument clarity and depth. It’s a pretty decent range, from high-end Opus with 2.8in LCD and 16GB of storage to fashionable Luxe with Bluetooth and FM radio. and all are available right now. Check out more details, here.

This is a green light bulb, but not in the sense that it shines green light. No, this is the first bulb to hit the mass market with an eco-friendly LED light source. It consumes just 7W, yet produces the equivalent light output as a 40W incandescent bulbs. It also has a lamp life of up to 45,000 hours – some 45 times longer than its its older brother bulb and 25 times longer than traditional halogen filled lights. Go environment!
