Illustration by Bill Villareal Ah, summer. The warmth of the sun, the smell of fresh-cut grass, the taste of backyard barbeque - and your music playing too softly to hear on the patio but blasting as you walk inside for more ice cubes. As life migrates out of doors at this time of the year, your tunes don't have to get left behind.

When I moved into my new house earlier this year, I had hopes of setting up some of my more antiquated gear. One of the pieces is a Technics turntable - state of the art, circa 1985. When people (er, guys) see it, they start waxing poetic about their vinyl LP collections and how, "one day," they're going to get another turntable.

This afternoon, Google and Logitech gave press a hands-on look at the upcoming Google TV settop box and finally filled in some of the remaining info gaps that we have been wondering about for months. We got a chance to handle both the standard keyboard and mini keyboard controllers and test out a few of the apps including the anticipated Netflix app. But, perhaps more importantly, we finally found out how much it will cost.

I usually get the gadget I review for this column about 3 to 4 weeks before I have to write it up. That's a relatively short time to really get to know a product, so I like to live with some of them beyond the deadline. Here are a few things that have truly stood the test of time.

You dropped the money. You bought a 1080p LCD flat-screen big enough to play air hockey on if you laid it down (and had the right paddles). You have the Blu-ray Disc player. And, you have the kind of surround sound system powerful enough to propel Delaware into a geo-synchronous orbit.

Just a week before the May 9 release of their two-CD set Stadium Arcadium, the Red Hot Chili Peppers found that the whole album had been leaked to the Internet, letting fans download it free from file-sharing sites. These days, of course, leaks are hardly novel - but the reaction of the band's bass player, Flea, was.

The fun and sun capital of the world. Luxury yachts, fashion models, Cuban cigars, fast cars, and topless beaches. Tanned babes and boys, boats and bikinis, palm trees and piña coladas. Ocean Drive and Art Deco. The Magic City - Miami. Where better to get away from it all? A four-day weekend, a gold-star hotel, and - what the heck?

He may not have known all the chords . . . but he knew "a lot more than we knew," as John Lennon said, remembering the day in 1957 when Paul McCartney introduced him to George Harrison. And that was enough for John to agree with Paul that George should join them in the band that would eventually become, with Ringo Starr, the Beatles.

Leave it to Apple to encase the latest technology in a wrapper so irresistible that it appeals both to cutting-edge technophiles and to people who care more about how something looks than how it works.
