Amazon Music, I Don’t Get It

Obviously I have research to do about Amazon’s new music service, but I don’t get it. The service is a competitor to Spotify and Apple Music. But it’s different than the music available from the Amazon Prime subscription. And although I already pay for Amazon Prime, this doesn’t give me access to my this separate […]

Old Airport Express, New Problem

Maybe it was fun while it lasted, but my revitalized AirPort Express, the 802.11g version, isn’t showing up as an AirPlay device anymore. It was there the other day, but today I can’t see it to stream music through. This geeky  experiment could be over. Oh wait… powering down then restarting the Airport Express seems […]

Light of the Seven – So Good

Gotta love the last episode of Season 6 of the Game of Thrones. The music truly set this episode apart, especially the opening sequence featuring the Light of the Seven. It’s so good, so full of impact. Listen on repeat, just don’t follow Tommen. Yup, that is a piano playing in this opening score.

Would an iPod Prince Edition Sell?

This goes beyond a royal purple aluminum exterior. This is more than Prince’s logo etched on the the back of the iPod. Listen with Beats by Dre headphones in either Purple Rain or a Diamonds and Pearls special makeups. This is more value than the limited edition Price iPod of 2009. Think of Prince’s songs […]

I’m not necessarily complaining about this choice since it is a solid playlist leading off with Coldplay and ending with lots […]

iTunes Match vs Apple Music

I’ve been a subscriber to iTunes Match since its inception. All my music in the iCloud available to all my connected devices. Not a bad proposition for $25 a year. But now there’s Apple Music which has similar features as iTunes Match but is different. Apple has had to explain the differences between iTunes Match […]

Boom Indeed, UE Mini Boom

Wow. The Logitech UE Mini Boom surely lives up to its name. It is minuscule at 4.4 x 2.6 x 2.4 inches and is lightweight at 0.7 lbs. But the sounds is booming. You won’t believe your ears when you hear the Mini Boom in action. No wonder it’s The Wirecutter’s choice for the best […]

Us the Duo Sings the Hits of 2014

Here’s a cool mashup of the pop hits of 2014 done by Us the Duo in less than three minutes. Though I don’t know much about the duo of Michael Alvarado and Carissa Alvarado, I’m thinking Carissa could be the voice of Moana in Disney’s next feature film.

Are You Ready for Arashi?

I am now that I know what or actually who Arashi is and what impact this boy band from Japan will have on Hawaii this upcoming weekend. 15,000 visitors are headed to the Arashi “Blast in Hawaii” concerts in Ko’olina on Friday and Saturday. Supposedly the Ihilani and Aulani are both completely booked so don’t […]
