It’s a long weekend so perhaps you should consider updating your operating systems to get rid of some nasty security issues and glitches ?

Apple had noticed a security issue for their El Capitain, Yosemite, Safari and iOS software so they’ve issued updates for their computers, tables and iPhones.

Microsoft’s Anniversary version of Windows 10 operating system had freezing issues so they also issued updates this weekend.

Indiegogo – ASAP Connect

This new device, called ASAP Connect, enables iPhone and Android device users to plug and unplug their devices easily using magnetic USB connectors that are available in four colours ; Silver, Gold, Rosegold and Gunmetal.

I’ve pre-purchased one for my mp3 player and one for my phone. And I thought you guys might be interested in learning about the technology.

Indiegogo – Nura Headphones

I am a big fan of Sennheiser headphones. But this product sounds rather interesting because of its response to a listener’s individuality.

Vinyl : Good News / Bad News

The Good News – A new 20,000 sq. ft vinyl record pressing plant will open in Burlington, Ontario in a few days and it will be the second largest plant in North America. Precision Record Pressing Incorporated will be handling independent releases, including some from Isotope Music, and major releases from Universal and Sony Canada.

The Bad News – Music blogger Pitchfork has reported that some independent records stores in the states have had their accounts closed by WEA, Warner Music’s distributor, because they’ve had less than $10,000 in orders per year. If this continues smaller retailers in the states might have issues keeping albums from Warner and their subsidiaries in stock.

Gift Card Offer

Select Real Canadian Superstores will be offering 10% discounts on $50 and $100 iTunes cards until May 26th, 2016 with an in-store coupon. Consult your local flyer for details by clicking here.
