Guitar tuners aren't always the simplest gadgets in the world, even if they're mostly charged with an impossibly simple task. In fact, advanced features on more expensive tuners might confuse someone who doesn't know what they're doing. This one, however, opts for simple and cheap. There's something to be said for that.


Dick Smith's latest deal is for an LG 3D-capable Blu-ray player and PVR dual tuner 250GB combo for $399. It's certainly possible to put together a cheaper DIY system, but if you wanted a simple solution, it's a fair deal.


If you're looking for an edgier way to tune your axe - one that uses your sense of sight rather than that of sound - look no further than the Stimmmopped, a device that uses LEDs to keep your licks sounding sweet.


Softbank's just stumped-up with this interesting mobile TV add-on for Japanese iPhone users: it's a separate unit with tuner and aerial that retransmits the signal over Wi-fi to the phone. The rechargeable device will give about three hours of TV oggling, and connects to a special iPhone app that'll be distributed free when the device hits the streets in mid December for a suggested price of around $US100. Better still, the receiver unit doubles as an iPhone battery top-up when you link it via the dock connector, for double the utility. And just maybe it'll pave the way for similar non-1seg devices this side of the Pacific.
