It's not often when "This is a first" can be said with a straight face in the DAP world. But the upcoming 4GB Turbolinux Wizpy really is a first. It's certainly not the 1.7-inch OLED display, FM radio, or DivX support that makes the device unique. We barely blink an eye these days when another new player can play MP3, Ogg, WMA, and AAC formats.

The stand-out feature of the Wizpy comes in the form of what's preloaded on 1.5GB of the player's internal flash memory . . . (wait for it) . . . Linux. Turbolinux FUJI, to be exact. And what good is bootable Linux without a sampling of what are arguably the best applications around? Yep, in addition to the plug-and-play OS, the Wizpy also comes preinstalled with Firefox, Thunderbird, and Skype. All this in a 3.3" x 1.7" x 0.5" device that weighs a mere 2.1 ounces.

The Turbolinux Wizpy will sell for about $250 when it hits Japan in February.

Do you know of a paint that would be suitable for spraying cables? I need something extremly bendy that will not crack :nono:

An enamel based paint for sure! Enamel forms a membrane, that if of a reasonable quality and given a good undercoat, will remain pliable and resist cracking.

How long is this cable?

To get a decent finished you'd prob need to plastic wrap it somehow. Heatshrink or some kind of braiding?

Around 40cm long and braiding/heatshrink are out of the question as the plugs on the cable are moulded on :(

Latex enamel ftw, should be exactly what you are looking for.
