XLR8R's City Guide now has Miami.
Street art has changed a lot over the years. From simply marking your spot in a public domain to well thought out political statements and full out attacks on the corporate world. TrustoCorp is a New York based artist (or artists) that has taken it to the next level by replacing products in grocery stores with products reflecting… more
DJ application Sonorasaurus Rex has been released just in time for the release of the iPad. The interface looks a little basic, but clean and easy to use. The question is will any real DJs actually use these mixing apps with an iPad to perform live shows? I think the relatively inexpensive cost of the device, portability and… more

The other day I posted about an iPad application called Midipad that converts your iPad into a midi controller. Well Mixr has announced their iPad app that transforms your iPad into a piece of full-on mixing hardware. I can’t see any serious DJ using this to perform, but I think it could be a fun way to… more

Giant has some nice stuff going on with their Bowery series. With a throwback look and a nod to designs of the past the series may have design elements of the past, but be assured the components are everything you would expect from a modern quality bicycle. I am liking the clean, minimal look of the Bowery FMX.… more
The release of the iPad will certainly change the way we view media, but will it also be a useful tool for creating media? The midipad software for the iPad actually converts the device into a virtual midi controller allowing you to control music software on your Mac or PC. The coolest part about this software is that… more
