Synth Britannia is a BBC documentary about the Synthisizer and it's introduction to pop music in the 70's and 80's. It includes interviews from several of my favorite musicians (including Vince Clarke - personal hero).

Radiohead remix = insane

I'm at the Seattle International Airport waiting for my flight to leave for Amsterdam. I've managed to find some free wifi (which is always nice) and while surfing the net I came across this video for a remix of the Radiohead song Nude. (video by James Houston). Quote from Engadget: "Somehow, this cat managed to tackle the nearly impossible task of remixing Radiohead's Nude without defacing it entirely (read: merging [...]

New Nikon D70s hits the Hallock household

I just purchased a new camera (well, Site Difference purchased the camera for me). It's the Nikon D70s - a near professional digital SLR with a 6.1 megapixel CCD, the ability to shoot 3 frames per second (up to 144) and two lenses - to name a few. The two lenses (a 18-70mm and a 55-200mm (made by Nikkor)) were bundled with the camera as part of a promotion. Of [...]

That was a mouthful. Solor Lampion [...]

Now this is an Alarm Clock that “rocks”

On-Off clock from Lexon I love buttons. It's really that simple. However, this new On-Off clock from Lexon just rocks to the off position - no buttons required. Designed by Nina Tolstrup, the On-Off LCD alarm clock can have its alarm activated by tilting it into the on position, and the alarm can be turned off by tilting the clock to the off position. Not sure how the snooze feature [...]

At first, the title may not make much sense - it will by then end of this post. I found this gadget online this morning. This thing is called the, "Wattson." It provides a method of understanding how much energy your home consumes. It has a sensor, which takes a measurement of the overall domestic energy consumption (as well as assessing individual appliances). It displays the reading as a number [...]
