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.

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.

It’s upgradable to a one-year 20GB plan for free when you purchase an MP3 album and additional plans start at $20 a year.

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.

Apple finally bringing Beatles to iTunes

Posted in iTunes by Conner Flynn on November 15th, 2010

The Beatles are legendary. Sadly many kids have yet to discover them thanks to their absence from iTunes. But fear not, your kids will have the chance to have a listen on iTunes yet. This comes seven and a half years after Apple launched the iTunes store.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that The Beatles catalog will be among tomorrow’s iTunes announcements. WSJ’s sources warn that plans could change at the last minute however, and that the talks between Apple, Beatles reps, and EMI were taking place as recently as last week. Still, you have to keep the faith. It’s just time to do it.

Volume Knob earphones keep your music retro

Posted in Earbuds by Conner Flynn on July 5th, 2010

You are always turning up the volume anyway, might as well make a statement about it. The Volume Knob Earphones look awesomely retro, like old school volume knobs.

These ear buds come with two sets of tips, but they do not seem to feature any working volume controls. We just think they look awesome. Too bad they can’t mute out the wife or kids. Best of all, they will only cost you $15. That’s a lot of style for $15.

Towel with built-in speakers folds into a backpack

Posted in Outdoors by Conner Flynn on June 27th, 2010

Your beach towel can’t do that. It sports amplified speakers that are positioned right next to your ears and I’m sure everyone around you will enjoy your music. When you are all done and have soaked up enough sun and tunes, just fold it up into a backpack.

Yes, you can wash it thanks to those speakers being removable. Not sure I would want to spend $72 on a beach towel though. The speakers are powered by a lithium battery that you can also remove. As for blaring music on this thing, that beautiful model above can do whatever the hell she wants as long as I get to look.

Android powered Coffee Maker

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on June 10th, 2010

Coffee makes the world go round. If we had no coffee, none of us would get out of bed in the morning. So it makes sense that we are always looking to improve coffee making technology. This new coffee machine concept is a bit different. And we aren’t sure it really improves things much.

It has a dock for an Android powered smartphone on top. Apparently the phone runs an app that would play music when docked, so you get have some tunes with your coffee. It has a QR-code scanner that reads the barcode-like tags on top of the coffee cartridges and plays music to go with the brand/flavor.
