Article Recap for the Week ending Apr 17, 2009

We started off the week by reporting that Amazon’s Kindle Store has surpassed over 260,000 books with an exponential growth rate – at least that’s not a reason not to own one.

We took a look at the available VHS to DVD converters and other analog to digital converters (both hardware and software solutions).

We featured a bunch of Google-related news. The latest offering from Gmail Labs is a tiny addition but welcome one – insert images directly into email. Next are the many uses of Google Latitude and last is the news that Google and universal were partnering up on a music video website called Vevo.

Rounding up, we pleasantly discovered that Facebook is
not only attracting younger members. Rock Band fan? Nowhere to put your instruments? Then take a look at the ‘Rock Box’ Rock Band storage box.

Rock Box – Storage For Your Rock Band

Rock Band Storage Ottoman

So you’ve been rocking out on Rock Band and have plastic instruments strewn around the living room in front of the TV. Want to get it out of the way when you’re not fake-shredding? the AK Rock Box should solve this – it is essentially a stylish ottoman, that wouldn’t look out of place in anyone’s house – it opens up and all your Rock Band instruments come out.

Inside, there is enough space to store 2 guitars, a foot pedal and a microphone, and there is a specially designed drum kit lift to help you get your drums out in one, easy motion. A pretty nice solution to a problem most Rock Banders have.

Rock Band’s first album, Priest’s Screaming for Vengeance

Harmonix announced that the 1st album will be Judas Priest’s Screaming for Vengeance. Sweet. This is the 1st in hopefully what will be many albums that they release. If you’re into NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal), then you’ll love the choice. IMHO (my opinion only, so no need to argue), this is one of the best Priest albums. Next up, Def Lep’s Pyromania, or Iron Maiden’s The Number of the Beast?

I feel that if Rock Band is to have some sort of lasting future, that this is exactly what they need to continue doing, but of course they also need to release lots and lots of singles, especially current and new ones to add to the variety and excitement.

I’m so excited, I pulled up some Priest to listen to on Rhapsody!
