Designer Joey Roth's Ceramic Speakers boast only 10 watts of output per channel, though each 4-inch full-range driver is housed in an acoustically dead porcelain and cork chamber that should do quite a lot with quite a little. Made from porcelain, wood and cork, Roth chose the materials not only for the aesthetic appeal they add to desktops, but also because porcelain's density and "acoustical deadness" rivals that of wood or plastic enabling the cone shape. Due out in October, Roth will be accepting pre-orders via his site starting September. No official word on pricing yet, but Roth expects they will be in the $400-500 range.

Dell hasn't officially released any specs for their tiny Dell Inspiron Zino HD yet but what they are saying is that it will have "desktop parts". This could mean this small unit might become a real option for people looking for a living room media PC when its released this fall. Slashgear has pictures of the unit including the back ports and it looks like it will have four USB 2.0 port, two eSATA ports, HDMI, audio in/out, a serial port, a card reader and an optical drive. If the hardware is something other than an Intel Atom this could be very interesting as the unit is only a little bigger than an external hard drive.
