>> Here it is, that twenty-five hundred dollar car, you've been hearing about, the Nano, from Indian Car Maker, Tata.
>> Now, the Nano could refer to the small size, but in my mind, Nano is a better description of the small price. How did they get there? Well, they got it down a lot of ways. First, of all, a two-cylinder engine, doing 33 horsepower, around 600 cc, just one windshield wiper. And instrument panel that is simpler then some motorcycles. The base model leaves off niceties [assumed spelling] like a radio, and obviously doesn't have power windows or AC. The 12-inch wheels held on with just three lug nuts, though our show car had four. The starter motor is apparently adapted from one used in motorcycles, etcetera, etcetera. And all in, the Nano weighs just thirteen hundred pounds, probably about the same as just the drive train of a Rolls Royce. Now, the Western viewer might throttle [assumed spelling] at a car like this, in its really basic simplicity.
>> But, you know, coming off a motorcycle or a bicycle and stepping into that, that's life-changing stuff. ^M00:01:13 [ Music ]

Not everything in today's show is about the "lady parts." That doesn't stop it from being awkward for the gents who might be listening. Not to mention, the gent who helped produce the show.
Speculation is building about Apple's plans for its next round of devices. CNET's Sumi Das and Josh Lowensohn sift through rumors swirling around the cost and features of a cheaper iPhone, possible size and screen updates to the iPad, and more.
Scientists have simulated a part of the brain, molecule by molecule, and may possibly be able to simulate an entire brain soon. This has Natali excited, because she anticipates being able to download martial arts into her brain. Jason just doesn't want to meet another one of himself. We also discuss the real cost of bandwidth for ISPs, and Immanuel Kant.
The Cowon iAudio 7 beats the industry heavyweight iPod Nano in price, features, battery life, and sound quality. The user interface could use some refinement, but all in all this is a very impressive MP3 player.
The Nikon Coolpix S200 digital camera looks pretty and will fit almost anywhere, but it just doesn't take very good photos.
The Ricoh GR Digital II is a cute compact camera that might appeal to street photographers looking to step away from a range finder and into digital, but doesn't deliver the features, performance, or image quality it should given its steep price tag.
Just because it's free, doesn't mean it's great, and these downloads prove it.
The Apple iPod Nano is priced under $200. So, the new 4GB and 8GB Nanos will likely be the most popular tech stocking stuffer this year.
Even though the LG HBM-235 doesn't have all the bells and whistles of more expensive headsets, it offers acceptable audio quality considering its bargain-basement price.
