While Tinder solves a few of the problems women face with online dating -- like being smothered with lascivious messages from anyone and everyone -- there's still an issue of privacy that it fails to address. That risk of not being nearly as anonymous while looking for a mate as one would hope i

It's darn tough to pump out a digiframe that's not immediately forgettable these days, but if anybody can do it, iriver can. The subtly beautiful 7-inch Framee-L features a 720 x 480 resolution display, 1GB of inbuilt memory, an SD / MMC card slot, USB port and an alarm feature for waking you in th

After witnessing iriver's gorgeous lineup in person at CES, we can't help but shed a tear each time one of these Siren DAPs taints the image a touch more. Nevertheless, the totally bland DP150 (the DP100's successor, by the way) weighs in at 24-grams, is available in pink, blue and gold motifs and

Although the Rumbler, conceived and sold by Federal Signal, has been helping cops grab the attention of citizens for a few months, its shock waves are just now getting the publicity they demand. The setup is being installed on patrol cars in locales such as Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania and New Yo

It actually makes us a wee bit nauseous to see all these low-end Siren devices come from iriver's team of design slayers. Nevertheless, we'll hold down our angst-kebab long enough to tell you about their new DP350 media player. Your ¥17,800 (about $153) takes home 4GB of storage, a 1.8-inch 128

Merely four months after acquiring Siren, iriver has just unveiled its first DAP under the new brand: the DP250. This pocket-friendly (and admittedly stylish) player will be available in 1GB or 2GB flavors, black or white color schemes, and include an FM tuner / transmitter, a built-in speaker, voic

As if you weren't already inundated with digital picture frames on this beautiful Friday, here's yet another to chew on. Manufactured by Siren (you know, part of iriver), the DF150 ups the ante on the DF100 by expanding the screen real estate from five-inches to 5.6-inches and by increasing the onb

Here we go, the PN100 is the first product to be birthed from iriver's acquisition of Siren in Japan.

Iriver Japan just announced the acquisition of Japan's Siren Corporation. As such, Siren -- the number 4 DAP maker in Japan -- looks to become the low-to-mid tier device maker in iriver's lustalicious DAP/PMP portfolio while introducing iriver to the digital photo frame business. Interestingly enou

Siren, a gadget company helmed by ex-Rio employees that's flown largely under the radar, is launching two new home media streaming devices (oh yay), both due in early March. The Screamer pushes audio around on the crowded 2.4GHz spectrum at bitrates of up to 1.536Mbps, moving tracks from your Windo

Couple of new digital picture frames to bring you courtesy of Smartparts and Siren, cause you know we just can't bear to let one slide by. Smartparts looks to be trying to de-emphasize the digital aspects of its frame (pictured above), slotting an 8.4-inch LCD into a genuine wood frame with a walnu

Japanese manufacturer Siren has announced a trio of thoroughly average-looking digital audio players today, each available in a couple of different variations. Starting at the bottom end, the DP100 (in the middle, above) is the lowest cost model, available in 512MB, 1GB, and 2GB flavors for 5,980,
