Making it big in the headphone industry isn’t always about sound quality, sometimes you just have to be loud. The folks at Fanny Wang have that covered, offering up some wildly colored cans to help them “break through the noise,” as they put it, of the headphone market. Users can customize the outfit’s 1001, 2001 and 3001 model headphones on the firm’s new interactive website, picking and choosing colors for seven distinct parts, including the cord. Orders take about three weeks to assemble and ship, Fanny says, giving you just enough time to snag some colorful cans before the holidays. You know, in case someone on your list is looking for something sort of like those ColorWare tinted Beats, but with a bit of actual color. You can find Fanny’s fancy press release after the break.
Fanny Wang lets you make your headphones as ugly as you want originally appeared on Engadget on Thu, 17 Nov 2011 08:00:00 EDT. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
While the Android market is predicted to finally outgrow Apple’s iTunes App Store sometime this year, many mobile software developers still focus on iOS apps before turning their attention to other platforms. That’s exactly what Zipcar did with its iPhone app (which, for those keeping score, was released in September 2009). Those who’ve been wanting to get in on the car-sharing action with their Droid or Nexus S can now finally do so, at least in beta format. Can’t have things be too easy for Froyo folks, now can we?
Similar to the iPhone app, the new Android Zipcar program allows members to find and reserve vehicles (you can refine your search by time, where you’re at or going to be and type of vehicle). Important for the chronically late: you can also extend your current reservation through your phone. As with the iPhone app, you can now honk your Zipcar’s horn using your phone. Life is good.
If you’d like to test out the app and have Android OS 2.1 or higher, you can get it direct from Zipcar here or just search for Zipcar in the market. Users of other mobile platforms (i.e., Blackberries), can, as always, use the Zipcar mobile site to access a lot of the same features. Probably not the honking thing though. That wouldn’t be very businesslike.
