This morning’s email dump includes an announcement that BUY.COM is offering the Blue Eyeball USB microphone/webcam device for the modest sum of $24.99. Blue make some well regarded microphones for studio use, and also some innovative designs for desktop and podcasting applications.
The Eyeball in question has a built-in digital-to-analog adapter and presents a USB interface to the host platform. It’s a very good quality microphone. The fact that it includes a webcam is a plus if you use things like Skype for video calling.
I’d buy one of these myself, but my wife gave me it’s bigger sibling, the Blue Yeti not long ago.
