As a basic, inexpensive digital music player for the gym, the Iomega Mixx is a decent choice, but beware of the poor battery life.
An earlier version of this blog incorrectly stated some of Mixx's content partnerships.
News site, which touts itself as a more customizable alternative to social-media sites like Digg, is scheduled to open up on Tuesday.
Mixx is a new social news service that's similar to Digg, but it's doing some interesting things that set it apart.
Also: iPhone developer Smule has raised $3.9 million in funding; Mixx has a new homepage; and Yammer is set to announce a hosted version of its software.
Online discovery site, which competes with Digg, Reddit, and Mixx, snags Funny Or Die, Atom, Scientific American, and 5min.com for its partner program.
