"Want to play MP3 music files on your stereo? Burn your own CDs
with music downloaded off the Net? Watch Atom Film shorts on the
family TV? David Roth has your number. Roth is chief executive of
Rocketpod, a southern California start-up that promises to make
Internet entertainment easy and fun. Today, Rocketpod dashed
forward to whet the public appetite for its planned line of
consumer-centric products it said will Web-enable home
"The plan is to launch a stackable entertainment system that
includes a Universal Serial Bus (USB) hub, a digital audio player,
a digital videodisc player, a digital camera, a digital camcorder,
a universal remote that doubles as a cordless phone with a
voice-over-Internet Protocol option, a cell phone and an
11-megabit-per-second wireless connector. Rocketpod products are
also designed to work with existing home entertainment
"Rocketpod's first two products, set to ship later this year,
will be LaunchPod, the USB hub that powers the entire stack, and
MP3Pod, a digital audio player. ... A PC isn't needed to run
the array. Rocketpod components use their own operating platform.
"The pods will work with Windows and Macintosh [operating systems],
and we are planning to support Linux, X-box and PlayStation in the
future," Roth said."
