"Two years ago, French startup Future Sound Technologies (FST) set about creating "the ultimate music appliance" for today's wired music enthusiasts. Founders Martin Guerin and Eric Morisset envisioned a device that would make it easy for people to fully enjoy their favorite online and downloaded titles anytime, anywhere -- without the hassles of being tethered to a PC. At the recent MIDEM 2001 global music trade show in Cannes, France, FST unveiled the outcome of the company's two-year quest: the "Hi-Muse".

The Hi-Muse is an innovative Linux-based entertainment gadget that offers a combination of both standalone and Internet-based music and sound functions.
