Being a Mac user, I frequent many an Apple friendly website and read much traditional printed Mac media. And it seems that no matter where I go, those pesky algoriddim guys have got there first and have djay propaganda in every corner of the Appleverse. Steve Jobs himself even had djay for iPad not only in his last keynote, but also in the last iPad promo

From his well-deserved induction at Rockwalk . I was saddened to learn this morning that earlier today, Tsutomu Katoh, founder and chairman of Korg, passed away. He was a rare visionary, not only the founder of one of the great electronic instrument manufacturers, but – unlike the vast majority of his counterparts – someone who stayed at the helm of the business he created

Yesterday, Jon Bon Jovi decided to switch off his brain, open his perfectly formed mouth and ram both feet into it, in what can be only be described as an ill-thought wildly off target rant at Steve Jobs, where he singled the Apple overlord for being “personally responsible for killing the music business.”.

While video is a massive global market for consumers, it’s still not really changing the DJ game just yet. Some DJs have been doing it for years now, while others are toe dipping the fledgling scene to see what it has to offer.
