No more Muzik and other factsTuesday, 14 October 2003
Here are some tidbits which I consider news:
- When I got home yesterday found a letter on the table in which IPC Media informed me that Muzik Magazine closed and there'll be no further issues. This is sad. Very sad. I really enjoyed reading Muzik.
- Napster is about to relaunch as a pay-per-download service. I don't think it'll have the same success as the first version (no payed service will have as much success as a free one, ever!) although it's backed by an agressive advertising campaign.
- Talking about Napster, there's Samsung's Napster MP3 Player which looks kinda cute and has lots of cool features! Maybe they'll import it to Romania too. In a year or two... At least.
- A List Apart is about to lauch the 3rd version of their site. I'm keeping my eyes peeled because ALA is one of those sites that preach for CSS based layouts and their articles are usually reference material.
- I'm enjoying James Holden's Balance 005 mix more than a lot! It balances between quite a number of electronic music styles and sub-styles, while still managing to keep Holden's trademark sound signature. Great 2 CD set!
- There's a trailer available for one of my favorite directors' new movie. I'm talking about Tim Burton's Big Fish. I'm really looking forward to see it as Burton always succeeds in creating hunting visual worlds...
That’s about it for now.
