Paul Clinton Apple Computer rolled out its new iPod music player Friday, drawing sizable crowds of technophiles at Fashion Island and South Coast Plaza who were eager to get a first glimpse of the device. The unveiling followed Monday's announcement by Apple, which runs retail stores at both shopping centers, of its new iTunes service, which allows users to download songs. The new iPod can store up to 7,500 songs, compared to the 1,000 songs the device could store in its first incarnation two years ago. "The appeal of it is the idea that you used to have to bring five or six CDs with you," said Mark Adams, the manager of the Fashion Island store.

Alicia Robinson Books aren't dead, even if in some cases they've shrunk to the size of a five-stick pack of gum. But you won't need a microscope to read these tiny books -- just headphones or a place to plug in. The Newport Beach library system is about to welcome literature into the 21st century when it begins lending out iPod Shuffle digital audio players loaded with popular books. Although iPods are wildly popular as music players, Newport's library is one of only a few in the country using them for audio books, said Genesis Hansen, a reference librarian for the Newport Beach Public Library.

The Newport Beach Public Library has exciting news for book lovers and technology lovers too. Beginning July 6, we'll be checking out audio books on iPod Shuffles. The iPod Shuffle is a compact digital audio player, about the size of a pack of gum and not much heavier than a car key. They are stylish, fun and easy to use. Each iPod Shuffle will be loaded with one audio book and then be available for patrons to check out. Circulation will be similar to other library items -- the audio books will be listed under title and author in the library catalog, with a special designation in the record to indicate the iPod format.

Now that the holidays are over, our house has settled back to normal - whatever that is. This Christmas, my daughter was given the gift of technology. She received an iPod Touch, packed with her favorite music and games. More proof I was born in the wrong decade. Now, I've always embraced technology. When I was a kid, I was the only one in the house that could set the blinking time on the VCR. My first computer was a Commodore 64, and I remember using an actual phone modem by placing the receiver on the acoustic cradle.

If you're a techie, this could be interesting. If you have to ask what a techie is, this will be deadly dull. Techies are people who are fascinated, captivated, infatuated, and otherwise fond of technology, most often in gadget/widget/gizmo form. When a major new technological doodle hits the stores or the Internet, techies get weak-kneed, light-headed and dizzy. On a day like last Friday, when Apple introduced its new iPhone — a cell phone-iPod-Wi-Fi-PDA thing — techies have to sit down and put their heads between their legs so they don't pass out. By the way, is there anything as hip and happening as those initial lowercase letters — iPod, iPhone, eBay?

Inside a bright, open office in Newport Beach, Scott Burris wears a white T-shirt with no jacket and designs an advertisement with nothing but a mouse and a monitor in front of him. On a typical day, Burris' workstation at HeilBrice retail advertising is abuzz with office chatter. His refuge: listening to a 4,000-file, 31-gigabyte collection of songs on his computer that, he determined, would play for 127 days straight without repeating. Throughout the workday, Burris is plugged into iTunes, a media player produced by Apple Computer Inc. that organizes digital music and hooks up to the portable iPod.

When he used to own a Balboa Peninsula bike shop, Don DiCostanzo started making his own custom electric bikes for customers after he couldn’t find any he liked. Now he hopes that Pedego, the bike company he started in 2007 with a college friend, will become the industry standard for electric bikes. “In e-biking, there isn’t anything in terms of a brand like the Blackberry or iPod yet, and that’s what we hope to be,” DiCostanzo said. DiCostanzo’s electric beach cruisers are catching on in Newport Beach as an environmentally friendly way to avoid beach traffic and parking, said Bethany Lee, director of operations for Newport Fun Tours, 2122 Newport Blvd.

Police are investigating the connection between 14 stolen laptops from Newport Beach homes along the Balboa Peninsula since the beginning of the year, police said Tuesday. Authorities reported that since Jan. 1, at least 21 homes from the end of the peninsula to Walnut Street on the other end have been burglarized, many of them in similar ways. Many of the crimes occurred during evening or overnight hours, in some cases while the victims were home sleeping. The burglar or burglars typically enter through an unlocked door or window, which serves as a reminder for residents to secure their homes when they leave or before they go to bed. In two-thirds of the cases, a laptop was stolen, but in others people lost cameras, wallets, backpacks or an iPod.

Car break-ins are on the rise over the past month with thieves favoring small gadgets like iPods and global positioning systems, police say. “Wherever they’re seeing these opportunities, they’re taking advantage,” Sgt. Bryan Glass said. Statistics were not immediately available, but Glass said detectives had told him they’ve seen more GPS systems being targeted. These types of vehicle burglaries aren’t sophisticated, it’s usually a quick window smash-and-grab, Glass said.

A white-tailed kite came to a halt in front of Steve Alter and his bird-watching companions, its wings flapping as it hovered like a snow angel in the air in front of the group. The act — common to the bird — gained “oohs” and “ahhs” from the bunch who quickly pulled out pens and marked the sighting. Alter’s crew of “birders” were one of a handful The “birders” began their count before the sun rose at 5 a.m. in the Upper Newport Bay with a hunt for some elusive owls.
