Cool Gadget – MP3 FM Modulator

I’ve just recently bought a cool little gadget for Julea. Since Julea’s car comes with a standard car player, I’ve decided to get something that can adapt her MP3 players to her existing car stereo system.

So I got her this nifty little gadget, it’s a MP3 FM Modulator. Yes, a MP3 FM Modulator. Probably most of you would have heard or even seen it before but this gadget is so cool that it deserves a re-introduction.

This FM Modulator plays all your audio devices wirelessly through your car stereo system and turns any USB memory drive into MP3 player. It comes with 7 FM modulator presets that a local radio station is not broadcasting on.

What you see here are the few devices that I pluged in into the FM Modulator.

So how to use it?

For USB memory drive :
1) Plug FM Modulator into vehicle’s 12 Volt adaptor.
2) Plug your USB drive into FM Modulator’s USB port.
3) Select one of the 7 FM Modulator Presets that a local radio station is not broadcasting on.
4) Tune your car stereo to the same FM freqeuncy as the FM Modulator.
5) Press the PLAY button and the music transmit to the vehicle’s stereo system.

For use with MP3, CD, or DVD player :
1) Plug FM Modulator into vehicle’s 12 Volt adaptor.
2) Using the provided audio cable, plug your MP3, CD, DVD player or rather audio devices into the FM Modulator’s stereo jack.
3) Select one of the 7 FM Modulator Presets that a local radio station is not broadcasting on.
4) Tune your car stereo to the selected FM Presets and enjoy the music from your audio devices.

I tell you, this device may not be the best invented gadget but it’s really cool for those who does and doesn’t own a car CD player.

I got this gadget from Studio 78, AsiaCafe for a reasonable price of RM150. As for the quality of the sound/music, it’s almost as good as you’re playing a CD…well, almost. Not bad indeed :)

Studio 78 is on the first floor of AsiaCafe which is located right infront of Taylor’s/Inti College, SS15 Subang Jaya.

Awesome Foursome

I’ve been hearing quite a lot of negative feedbacks and reviews about the movie Fantastic Four from certain people especially from my pet sis Radiance. Being a 70’s child, I was brought up worshipping these heroes. They are every children’s superheroes. Even after all the bad feedbacks, I still wanted to watch the movie…and I did.

I watched it with my girlfriend Julea over at Pacific Megamall Cineplex and we loved it. Enough said.

Seriously, the whole plot and CG of the movie may not be the best but it’s the live of these superheroes that counts. Bringing them alive on the silver screen totally brings back my childhood moments. I’ve always wish to be a superhero like them. I’ll leave the story telling to the real pros…

The story as laid out in the film version of the “Fantastic Four” follows Reed Richards (Ioan Gruffudd), a brilliant but broke scientist and his good buddy Ben Grimm (Michael Chiklis) as they go against everything they know is right and ask Victor Von Doom (Julian McMahon) for help with an experiment that’s sure to make them all rich and famous – or even wealthier and more famous in the case of Von Doom.

The backstory that’s quickly laid out in the opening moments of the film lets us uninitiated “Fantastic Four? viewers in on the secret that Von Doom’s beautiful assistant, Sue Storm (Jessica Alba), once had a relationship with Richards before determining that he was just like most men (yes, that’s a snide remark but I couldn’t resist). Reeds spoke without thinking and didn’t pay enough attention to their relationship so now she’s moved on to the handsome Von Doom, a narcissistic businessman who in all honesty cares for her less than he cares for his mirror. I’m dwelling on the relationship aspect of the storyline as that’s basically what the film’s all about. Sure there are special effects, and there’s the requisite bad guy who needs to be dealt with, but the movie’s really all about …

Some of my young friends didn’t appreciate the movie at all. Problem is not the movie, it was them and in fact most of the youngsters today. Most of these ‘young critics’ were not even born yet to appreciate the Fantastic Four.

The very first superhero team book Marvel put out was Fantastic Four #1, which came out in 1961.
