Well, here is another story for the books to add about Google's conundrum with Apple. Speaking with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher of AllThingsD, Google chairman Eric Schmidt was pressed to answer questions regarding Apple's mapping technology. Schmidt used the forum to reveal the future (or lack of?), that the two technology powerhouses are heading towards.
Etymotic unveiled an updated line of iPhone and iPod headphones and bluetooth headset at CES. New additions consist of the hf3, mc3, mc5, and etyBLU2.
The hf3 replaces the hf2 earbuds, adding a three button remote that lets you control compatible iPhones and iPods without having to handle it directly, and both it and the mc3 and mc5 (also new) use a new combination of low-cost coil drivers and response-shaping to boost weak highs without diminishing bass.
