London, England, 21st October 2014. A new iPhone app called SingTrue™ released today promises to teach anybody to sing in tune accurately and reliably - even if they think they are "tone deaf". The app has been developed by London-based music education technology company Easy Ear Training, following their successful Tone Deaf Test project which showed that just 2% of people are truly tone deaf. With the new SingTrue app the company hopes to reach the other 98%, show them that they are musical after all, and help them discover their voice to become a confident singer.
 
Over 40,000 people have taken the Tone Deaf Test (http://tonedeaftest.com) on the web or with the free iOS app.

Monster headphones have been in the business of making premium audio accessories for over three decades now, and they have built up quite a reputation by developing high-end audio gear. Over the years I've heard a great deal about the amazing quality of  the audio gear made by Monster, the company served as the launch pad for Apple-owned Beats by Dre. So when I had to opportunity to try a pair of the Monster Inspiration Lite on-ear headphones ($269.95), I was excited to see how these headphones from the company that helped shape the future of Beats would perform.

Fortunately, I've discovered a set of headphones that looks great, sounds great and is quite comfortable. And they come from Bell'o Digital, the electronic side of Bell'o, the well-known Audio Video furniture provider.



Boombot REX Brings the Boom

I love it when plans come together. The other day my kids were planning on camping in the backyard and they asked for a wireless speaker to enjoy their tunes. However, the forecast called for rain.  While my kids can handle getting a little wet, I wasn't thrilled with the idea of ruining my electronics. That same day, the Boombot REX arrived, from Boombotix.



Apple Tells up to 200 Beats Employees to Beat It (UPDATE: Okay, you've got three months)

image

UPDATE: It might be because of the bad press, or a change of mind, or misreading tea leaves, but Apple wants folks to know that just about everyone at Beats is being offered a spot at Apple.  BUT, there are no guarantees after 3 months.  So the original report, that some are being asked to stick around only until January 2015 still holds true, but Apple wants you to see it differently.  So 500 Beats employees will become Apple employees... but many for just three months.

You would think a company as large as Apple could acquire a business of about 500 people for $3 billion and manage to find jobs for all of them, but alas, it isn't so. 9to5mac is reporting that as many as 200 of the employees from Beats have been let go or are being asked to stick around only until January 2015.

According to NPD estimates, iTunes is currently responsible for 63 percent of all digital music sales, and is undeniably the United States' top music retailer.



Better Headphones than Beats for Less

When Apple paid $3 billion for Beats by Dr Dre, a lot of analysts think Apple overpaid. But that doesn't mean you have to. Sure, Beats headphones will set you back $200 and if you want wireless Bluetooth headphones with the Beats logo, expect to pay $300 to $350. But there are alternatives.
