  • Help! Need to know what something is called...

    I'm thinking you're in a shop which sells a small range of CDs and has a stand with pictures of the CD covers on it. When you press the picture, it plays a short sample from the CD you selected, so that you get a clue what you're buying.

    What's the stand/device called? No amount of googling has revealed the source of such devices and my Wife needs to look into buying one.

    Can anyone help please? If we knew what they were called we could go find one...

    Hi, Tom.
    I would look for "point of sale" or "kiosk stations". After all, I think that the CD covers' part is on the application side, sounds like you need the hardware for it. Take a look, for instance, at EasyTouch.
    Disclaimer: I am not connected in any way to EasyTouch, nor do I recommend their products. The suggestion is to see if I'm talking about the right product.

        Sorin - thank you but I got as far as "Due to our cheap manufacturing processes in China..." and stopped reading I like to buy ethically where I can.

        Samalako - thank you very much I think that those are exactly the thing...

          I hear you
          I just gave those products as example to what I thought you were looking for. I am glad you know now what's that "something"

            Ditto.... but over here it's very difficult to find anything not made in China
            I was looking for a stuffed animal that was made in the USA for my friends' kid but didn't find any in the toy store I was at. I did find some that were not made in China though... (Thailand, Malaysia, etc.) I didn't buy anything that day.

                Get them one of those custom made bears. Can't remember the name of the company, but IIRC they're in the NE USA.

                  Once you see the price however, you will switch back to China.
