Digisette L.L.C. has an unusual device called the digital e-cassette. It’s a digital audio player that looks like and works like a cassette tape. Recently the company added a public beta of its drivers that support Mac OS X.
The digital e-cassette works as a standalone device — it’s a completely self-contained MP3 player, complete with headphone jack and USB interface. It also acts as an MP3 playback system for any stereo system equipped with a cassette tape deck — like the one in your car, for example. Available in storage capacities up to 160MB, the device is sold in leading electronics retailers like Circuit City, Best Buy, Good Guys and Comp USA.
Although Digisette’s download page doesn’t yet reflect it, its links under the Macintosh heading will bring users to a beta driver suitable for Mac OS X. DuoPlugIn 1.1d3 works hand-in-hand with Apple’s own iTunes software to enable Mac users to download files to their digital e-cassette. (Thanks to MacCentral reader Rohan P.
