In Today’s TECH BYTES, the world’s top cell phone maker1 takes aim at Apple. Nokia has launched its first touch screen phone to rival the iPhone. The express music phone plays music and videos, stores eight gigs of memory and has a slightly smaller screen than the iPhone. It also falls a little short on functions. Unlike the iPhone, you can’t use two fingers to zoom2 in and out of pictures and web pages. The Nokia phones will hit stores before the holidays and sell for about 400 dollars before any subsidies3.

 

One of the Japan’s top cell phone companies is showing off a new concept phone at a major technology show this week. NTT DOCOMO's separate phone is sort of like two devices in one. You can actually break it into two parts, one with a touch screen display, the other with a keypad. The idea is that a user can make a call on one half of the phone while reading E-mail or checking their calendar on the other half. It also means there’s one more thing to lose.

 

Well, just when you thought pretty much everything was connected to the internet, you can add one more thing to that list. Bicycles .Yahoo has launched the first social net-working bicycle. It has a GPS-enabled camera that takes a picture every 60 seconds, tags it with geographical4 information and uploads it to a photo sharing website. And there are 20 of these bikes on the road right now, but Yahoo is planning on giving away more through a contest.

 

And finally a British inventor has developed a device he claims, “turns cheap supermarket wine into vintage wine in just 30 minutes.” The device looks like an ice bucket. But its creator claims it recreates the effects of decades of aging, using ultrasound technology and it’s not just for wine, it’s supposed to work for any alcohol that it is better when aged5. The man behind this miracle machine says it even makes alcohol easier to absorb and that virtually eliminates hangovers.
