COOL FACTOR It's nice to see other portable media players keeping up with the iPod, and Toshiba's gigabeat S Series has comparable video chops: a crisp 21/2-inch screen with 320 x 240-pixel resolution. But the deal will get sweeter later this year with the debut of Vongo (vongo.com), intended to be the movie-downloading service that will end all movie-downloading services.
BONUS The new gigabeat is also a Windows portable media center, so S cargo can include any music, photos, or videos dragged over from your Media Center PC, including TiVoToGo videos.
