Tubalr - Super Music App


Most music services cost too much, are too complicated or involves too much angst. So we were really impressed with Tubalr, a free app that makes it easy to find your tunes commercial free. While it draws its music from YouTube, the main screen has a search box that you can input your fave artist and there is also a "similar" button to find others that you might relate to. Watch videos, make playlists and share with friends. You can register for a free account or you can simply use it as an online radio station. Easy, peasy.

iPad and iPad mini to Finally Arrive


While Apple finally unveiled both the iPad mini and the 4th generation of iPad, it remains to be seen how well they deliver as the mini white has already sold out. Those who pre-ordered from the Online Store will undoubtedly see a delay and those who still want them are camping out at Apple's retail shops. Those who get them in their eager little hands will have at least four days of play before standing in line at their local Polling Place.

CDs Turn Thirty Years Old


The CD turned 30 Oct. 1, and although it has been mostly replaced by digital downloads, we figured we should pay a bit of tribute. Long story short, Phillips released the audio platform in 1974, soon collaborated with Sony and the CDP-101 was released to the public in 1982. The first CD was Billy Joel's 52nd Street, his 6th studio album, that was re-launched as a disc. You can check out its history and learn all the details or you can do what we are doing, chilling out to "Big Shot" by the fine musician as a fitting homage.
