My wife and I share the same iTunes music library and while most of our music taste overlap, there is the wayward song or artist that she listens too that I can't stand.
Of course, I only notice that an artists or song has snuck onto my iPhone while I'm listening to my iPhone. I used to think that I could remember to remove the offending song from my iPhone the next time I synced the device,. But of course, I always forgot. I figured out a quick way to remove the offending song while on the go.
It's not often that we absolutely fall in love with an iPhone and iPad stand, because there's not much that usually sets them apart. But the Rokform Rokstands, both the desktop and portable versions, captured our hearts.
Jon Bon Jovi created a stir today by telling The Sunday Times Magazine, "I hate to sound like an old man now, but I am, and you mark my words, in a generation from now people are going to say: 'What happened?' Steve Jobs is personally responsible for killing the music business."

As we move further and further away from vinyl, it’s become apparent that DJs both new and seasoned are looking at the iPad as a tool in their ever-changing arsenal to get your booty shaking. (Remember our interview with Rana Sobhany, the “iPad DJ”?) The touchscreen allows developers to re-create anything from old-school sound boards to fancy new apps that play music while filling your eyes with more colors than a tie-dye factory. While pushing a few buttons to create a bass groove is fun, the wannabe DJ inside each of us compels us to seek out apps like djay, with its virtual vinyl ready to rock your house parties.
