Electronic Rock Guitar Bag Plays Music

Posted in Apparel by Reuben Drake on July 28th, 2011

Most bags just hold stuff and that’s it. They do their job and nothing more. Well, ThinkGeek has a new offering that puts a playable instrument on it. It’s called the Electronic Rock Guitar Bag. The name says it all. This bag plays music.

The music plays through a little amplifier that you can hang on the front of the bag. How cool is that? The guitar is played by swiping your thumb across the strings on the bottom and you can make real chords on the neck. The bag has room for up to a 17-inch laptop and has two large pockets and six small pockets with a zippered phone pouch.

Code reveals Facebook working on a music service named Vibes

Posted in Facebook by Conner Flynn on July 7th, 2011

This is interesting. The Skype install code points toward a music application called Vibes. This piece of code all but confirms it. Facebook will be launching a new application called Vibes. As in good vibes. It connects with a music download dialog in the page, apparently.

This news coincides with Spotify’s announcement that it is launching in the US. And a Spotify-Facebook partnership has been rumored. The “Vibes” name makes sense too: The Skype deal was called “Peeps”. I think we can safely expect a launch by the end of summer. This will be interesting to watch.

Google kicks off Music Beta

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on May 10th, 2011

Google has taken its first steps into cloud media today with Music Beta, which allows users upload up to 20,000 songs that they can then stream from either a web browser or an Android device. Listeners can even “pin” music to a mobile device to have a permanent copy of those songs to play while “offline”. I wonder what Apple thinks about all of this.

There’s also a new playlist feature called Instant Mix, where Music Beta ‘listens’ to the music and uses the sound of the music to automatically generate a playlist. A Music Manager desktop app for Macs and Windows PCs will allow users to automatically grab and upload their iTunes or Windows Media Player collections to the cloud as well.

Google pulls GrooveShark music streaming service from Android Market

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on April 7th, 2011

The already controversial GrooveShark music streaming service is not finding it easy with mobile platform vendors. GrooveShark’s mobile music streaming application was already booted out of Apple’s App Store last year, and now they have been booted from Google.

GrooveShark for Android was removed from the Android Market this week. But don’t worry, the GrooveShark for Android application is still available from the company’s website and can be installed on any Android device that allows sideloading. The iPhone version is also available, though only installable on jailbroken devices. It ain’t easy getting your mobile Grooveshark on. It seems there are too many sharks in the water and not enough chum.

Digital Music to overtake CDs in U.S. sales by next year

Posted in music by Conner Flynn on March 31st, 2011

Things have been bad for the music industry ever since itunes and it is getting worse. Physical album sales are expected to drop 40%. The RIAA in the US and the worldwide IFPI have often said that these drops in sales are only due to piracy, but we all know that that is just bogus. Much of the drop is due to the decline of the album format.

Much of the industry’s sales has always been due to stronger whole albums in some cases and of course the necessity to buy a whole album at $15 to $20, even when you only want one or two songs. Strong quality albums are what sells. Quality. Are there any modern Beatles? Stones? Bah. I’m going back to bed.

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on March 2nd, 2011

In the US we have to wait for the Nintendo 3DS still, but those who already have the handheld have just gotten a firmware update for the device. There are some bug fixes and enhancements and the update also comes with a 3D music video of a band performing the “Super Mario Bros theme”.

Odd content for a firmware update, but at least you will have something extra to show your friends in glorious 3D. Mario fans will be delighted.

iTunes thinking about 24-bit music tracks

Posted in iTunes by Conner Flynn on February 22nd, 2011

Apple as well as others are considering upgrading the audio on tracks to get close to master-level audio quality, according to sources. The heads of Labels are negotiating to bring the underlying bit depth from 16-bit to 24-bit. This would bring the audio quality from CD-level to the same detail as the master tracks from the studio.

Interscope-Geffen-A&M head Jimmy Iovine at the HP webOS event briefly confirmed a push towards 24-bit audio through music stores and hinted that Apple and others might have to upgrade the iPhone, iPod and other devices for the extra depth.

Korean music video shows LG G-Slate with 3D

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on January 23rd, 2011

Rumors that the LG G-Slate would go 3D seem to have been confirmed by a Korean music video. Seungri’s clip for “What Can I Do” shows the device for the first time outside of a press event. It appears to show the dual cameras that would be needed for shooting 3D video. Earlier rumors had suggested a glasses-free 3D display and that seems to be the case.

A recent FCC filing which shows two holes on the back also supports that it has 3D. Other details are the front camera, HDMI and micro USB ports and an optional stand. The G-Slate should be based on NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 and have Android 3.0 on the 8.9-inch 1280×720 screen and 1080p video when using the HDMI output.

UK teen buys $750,000 of his own music online using stolen credit cards

Posted in iTunes by Conner Flynn on December 22nd, 2010

Credit card fraud is always going on somewhere and the latest example is a UK teen who recently got caught using stolen credit cards to purchase about $750,000 worth of music. His own music that he and his band offered on Amazon and the iTunes music store between January 2008 and June 2009. By doing so, he earned himself some nice royalty fees. Not that this will help him when he is behind bars.

The group allegedly downloaded the songs 6,000 times during that period. Crime doesn’t pay kids. And if you have to buy your own music to make it sell, maybe you should get a new gig.

Smartstand Portable Digital Music Stand

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on December 9th, 2010

Musicians love their art, but it isn’t easy making music and having to worry about turning pages of sheet music at the same time. But the Smartstand concept can help. It features a simple multi-touch interface and a hands-free page-turning pedal to make sure that you can turn the page without missing a beat.

It includes an online music school, instrument tuner, downloads and more. Musicians would love this and it would make their lives much easier. Hopefully we will see these everywhere very soon.

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on November 29th, 2010

So, what is the music service on Sony’s upcoming PlayStation Phone? PSP owners will soon have access to what may be signs of things to come. Sony has announced that a new software update, version 6.35, would prepare the PSP for Sony’s upcoming “Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity” service.

Franklin Roadie modular music system

Posted in Uncategorized by Conner Flynn on September 28th, 2010

Franklin knows us too well. We like our music systems both modular and retro looking. The company’s Roadie certainly fits the bill. It’s a three part system (if you want to have all parts), that consists of the EVS-2000, EVS-3000 and EVS-4000.

In that order, you get a base model that accepts sources via a 3.5mm input jack, a rechargeable battery with SD card slot, and a tweeter / equalizer. All three should go on sale soon for $99.99 as a bundle, while the 2000 and 3000 can be picked up by themselves for $49.99 / $79.99.
