So you have a collection of CDs, you wanna rip them to your computer, but you don’t wanna stick around inserting disc after disc into the drive. Whatta you do? You can always opt for the cheap labor (i.e. little brother), or pick up Disc Maker’s Pico CD/DVD Duplicator and open a CD ripping shop. Just stack 25 CDs at a time, and the Disc Maker’s automated arm will place each disc in the drive and rip away. Until recently we had only seen comparable systems that cost thousands, and were monstrous in size. Optional ripping software is available for $99, but we can’t find any mentioned advantages over iTunes. Cost $699 and available here.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
