New Music File Format ?

A new file format is in the works and may be introduced soon.

MusicDNA enables music producers to add lyrics, video and various other multimedia presentations to music files, that are compatible with the current mp3 players.

The new file format created by BACH Technology premiered at MIDEM 2010 in Cannes but has yet to be adopted by any of the major labels or online music distributors, Universal Music being the only label that has shown interest in the technology. But the new format will be introduced shortly in China according to Digital Music News and BACH Technology is hoping to sign on more clients by the summer, when the format will be officially released.

iPad – My Opinion

Well, Apple has decided to release a new gadget that they call the iPad.

Crude jokes aside this device has garnered my attention, more than the Kindle DX, because of its colorful display and wi-fi capability.

It’s as sleek as an iTouch but larger. And hopefully Apple considered that some consumers would like to mount it to a wall and use it as a networking device, like yours truly.

I’d like to be able to access MP3 files from a hard drive on my network and possibly connect wireless speakers to it so I don’t have to have these unsightly wires all over the place.

But of course Microsoft will likely create a Windows Media Center compatible tablet so there should be some competition by next Christmas.

I would consider the later as well if it was more competitively priced and offered 3G access for less. But for now Canadian will need to be content with a wi-fi model, that will be on sale in Canada this month according to the Financial Post.
