(at The Gadgeteer) Wacom Bamboo Tablets Wacom has just revamped its Bamboo tablet lineup, replacing the current Touch, Pen and Pen & Touch models with the Bamboos Connect, Capture and Create. These new names will take a little more explaining than the old ones.

The Capture is the same size, but adds multitouch and the option to go wireless. This is done with an add-on set of dongles (one for the tablet, one for the computer) and a battery pack. This pack costs another $40 on the $100 price of the Capture. The $200 Create is essentially a bigger version of the Capture, with multi-touch, wireless option and a large 8.5 x 5.4-inch touch area (and a 13.8 x 8.2-inch). (at Wired)

(at 7 Gadgets) Yamaha PDX-11 iPod Dock Yamaha makes some pretty awesome audio equipment, even if it often ranges on the pricey side. So there's reason to be excited for their new PDX-11 iPod dock, especially considering the four-inch woofer, distinctive looks and $100 pricetag. In addition to the woofer, which handles the lows and mids, the two-way speaker also packs a tweeter to handle high notes. And while some may scoff at the single speaker, Yamaha's approach here is nice. Instead of using stereo sound as a marketing gimmick (no iPod dock can really provide the true stereo effect), Yamaha seems intent on making one speaker sound good.
