Scattered details surface about Archos' 2007 line of DAPs.
Donald and Jasmine discuss new touch-screen PVPs from Cowon, some sleek and slender Etymotic earphones, as well as wireless MP3 players and portable devices for those who like to live dangerously. The winner of the iHome ZN9 is also announced.
