Being already sick of Safari for Windows

Well Apple released Safari for Windows. The famed browser that Mac people swear by is now multiplatform.

I downloaded it earlier today, and I was impressed at how quickly pages loaded on it. Seemingly quicker than Firefox in my unscientific test.

But everything just looks fuzzier and reading on the browser quickly strains my eyes. Get it right Apple!

Sneaking into the Detroit Electronic Music Festival (DEMF)

 

I guess it is about the money after-all.

The Detroit Electronic Music Festival (DEMF, I will not call it “Movement”) isn’t cheap anymore.

$41 for a standard weekend pass; $150 for a VIP pass that the yuppies Euros love so much.

This, of course, doesn’t apply to the many volunteers, DJs, producers, venders, police, promoters, friends, scenesters, homeless people, Girls Gone Wild subjects, celebrites and others who get in for free.

But if you’re a techno-peasant like me, and you don’t have a ton of cash, how do you plan to sneak/scam your way in?

Tell us in the comments.

2GB of free internet backup space, no strings

Mac and Windows users can now use Mozy (not to be confused with Muzzy, the adorable

educational foreign language cartoon) to back up 2GB worth of information for free.

A small client is available that lets users upload without a web browser.

They offer a paid version as well (unlimited storage), but who pays for things on the internet anymore?

Phat fingered beats

Add some human to your loops with this touchscreen MIDI controller.

The video offers a decent demonstration of the capabilities of the device (the song isn’t half bad either.)

The artist really adds a LIVE element to electronic music and isn’t just triggering beats with the device. Rather, He’s actually constructing the composition in real-time.

I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these devices, but unfortunately it’s going to put a HUGE dent in my wallet. The unit retails for around $2,600 USD and will probably stay that way for a while.

If you’re interested in buying me one, you can check out Cycling’74.com for more details. It’s a good thing I can use the Nintendo DS to trigger my loops for now.
