As digital music drifts further down the audio chain into cellphones, here comes a freaky little desktop amplifier called the Nuforce Icon that'll stop the MP3 generation in its tracks. The Icon, no bigger than Madonna's little black book (the paperback version), suggests what music in the home might become if we don't devolve into a nation of iPhone or iPod or iTouch speaker-dock addicts. At its best, this $249 device summons something far greater than dock-quality music. The lowly 12-watt Icon is not out of its league, away from the desktop, paired with $3,000 speakers in a full-blown sound system.

- The Ravens defense had a chance to silence the critics who questioned its performance against the run in last Monday's victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. Instead, the unit may provided more ammunition. Quarterback Michael Vick amassed 371 yards passing and punched in the game-winning touchdown on a 1-yard keeper with 1:55 left in the fourth quarter to propel the Philadelphia Eagles to a 24-23 win and the Ravens into a week of re-evaluation. Vick engineered a 10-play, 80-yard drive to record his second game-winning touchdown series this season.

Every summer, there is one song that's insidious. (How many times did you unconsciously hum along toLMFAO's"Party Rock Anthem" last summer?) But if this year's seasonal favorite seems particularly inescapable, there's good reason. Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" not only plays seemingly incessantly, but it's also been covered and parodied dozens of times. Whenever your friend from high school tweets another version of it, the original gets stuck in your head. AGAIN. The first viral cover featured Justin Bieber and some of his famous friends goofing off and lip-syncing the song, and shortly thereafter (and certainly not coincidentally)

For all the buzz since Thursday on NBC's plan to move Jay Leno out of prime time after barely four months, there is one driving force behind the story that has largely been ignored: The arrival of a new season of "American Idol" on Fox Tuesday night. The story of affiliate anger over "the Leno Effect" is one major factor for the Dump Leno Movement at NBC. The "effect" involves Leno's weak lead-in at 11 p.m. weeknights dramatically driving down the audience size for late news on local affiliates across the country.

WASHINGTON - Something didn't sound quite right, and to Bob Goldstein that qualified as a disaster. Goldstein, 59, had been stepping over wires and plotting out loudspeaker delays for two weeks, from the Capitol to the Potomac River two miles away. Big jobs are nothing new to Goldstein, owner of Baltimore-based Maryland Sound. But this one - the inauguration of Barack Obama - could be the largest gathering of humans ever amplified. So as much as ever in his long career wiring concerts and events around the world, the assignment called for perfection.

Complain all you want about $110 tickets - Friday night's Jay-Z show at Rams Head Live set the bar for hip-hop concerts. The rapper-impresario-entrepreneur born Shawn Carter came to Baltimore backed by a full band and armed with his vast catalog. His current mini-tour promotes his new release, American Gangster, but his sold-out performance sampled all parts of his career, taking those of us younger than 30 back to moments from our youth. "I thought there would be more from the [new] album," said Ashlyn Weyant, 21, of Brooklyn Park, who won tickets from a WERQ-FM 92.3 promotion.

Jeanne Yeoman had been dealing with her hearing loss for a couple of decades, but listening still exhausted her. And technology wasn't really helping her patience. She remembers driving down the road one day and coming close to just hurling her hearing aids out the window. "Hearing aids made everything louder, not clearer," she says. "I didn't need amplification. I needed clarification." Yeoman wasn't deaf. So she was surprised to learn that she was an ideal candidate for an experimental type of cochlear implant.

Not even an ice statue of Michelangelo's David (one that squirted vodka, no less) could save Dennis Kozlowski's marriage. The Tyco International CEO convicted of pillaging his own company - and who used corporate funds to throw his wife the infamous $2 million birthday bash, with the alcoholic ice sculpture and toga-clad models - filed for divorce last month. Apparently, Karen Kozlowksi will not stand by him as he pays $167 million in fines and restitution and serves his eight to 25 years in jail.
