Apple Introduces What It Calls an Easier to Use Portable Music Player

”It’s a nice feature for Macintosh users,” said P. J. McNealy, a senior analyst for Gartner G2, an e-commerce research group. ”But to the rest of the Windows world, it doesn’t make any difference.”

Steven P. Jobs, Apple’s chief executive, disputed the concern that the market was limited, and said the company might have trouble meeting holiday demand. He predicted that the improvement in technology he said the iPod represented would inspire consumers to buy Macintosh computers so they could use an iPod.

Steppa Dub, by Luss

Luss is a musician from Switzerland. He makes awesome, tripped out, dub electronica with an all hardware setup, runs through his tracks in a live jam style and posts the vids up on YouTube, tracks on SoundCloud, etc. etc.

He just posted up this reggae jam today and it’s soooo fucking killer, brought a huge smile to my face. Great way to end out the week. Hopefully he’ll post it for download or sale soon. 🙂
