Falcons hunting Crows

… out of the perspective of the Falcons. Yes, really.

WARNING: If you love Crows a lot, you may not watch this.

I do love them, but I’m fine with it since this is nature and natural behavior. Falcons hunt Crows all the time. I understand, though, if you find that disturbing. Then again, remember … Crows also attack other animals (mammals) and kill them. Circle of life.

Apple iPhone 6 & iOS 8 Fails: A Chronology

  1. U2 album stunt becomes a cake flying back into U2’s and Apple’s faces.
  2. iPhone 6 Plus — a $1000 device — bends (too) easily.
  3. iOS 8.0.1 update gets pulled back after release because of serious bugs.

To be expected next: free iPhone 6 Plus case that protects the phone from bending, or a new built of the device with another material than aluminium (or another aluminium).

This post gets updated whenever new things happen. Shouldn’t take long.

Vintage Drum Machines – Huge Free Sample Pack

Huge sample pack containing samples from the best drum machines ever build. Scroll down for a list of sampled drum machines.

  • WAV format
  • Bit rate: 44.1khz
  • Sample resolution: 16bit
  • Stereo and Mono samples (depending on the machine)

I didn’t record the samples, but I collected them from various sources over the years. This is the most complete collection I could imagine, and I use a lot of them myself in my productions.

What seems to be double is double, actually (like “Roland DR-110” and “Boss DR-110”), but from different sources. You may find the samples slightly different.

Bendgate: Apple iPhone 6 Plus not a Hipster phone

Bend-gate: Apple iPhone 6 Plus found bending in pants pockets. Obviously, the new iPhone 6 Plus is not a Hipster phone, not made for tight pants.

I’m sure, those are the reasons (when you ask Apple fan-boys or Apple itself), and all of this is easily avoidable:

  • You’re sitting wrong.*
  • You wear the wrong pants.*
  • You enjoy the wrong activities.
  • It’s not a bug, it’s a feature: the bent phone.
  • Putting a smartphone in your pocket is irresponsible and reckless abuse.*
  • It happens to all smartphone of that size and an aluminium body.*
  • That’s what you get for carrying around a phone of that size. Get a purse or a murse to solve your problems.*
  • It only bends when only a nominal amount of force is applied.*

*Actual real comments read on the web.

Feel free to add your reasons, explanations, excuses in the comments below.

Apple has been contacted for comment. I’m sure they’ll come up with an amazing, awesome, incredible, fantastic and ground-breaking excuse. 😀
