The difference between Vista and Windows 8? (...so you think windows 8 will fail like Vista did???)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Thursday, August 9, 2012, In : ramble 


At the time of pre -release testing and actual release Vista just wouldn't work on many machines for being too heavy, that's assuming it actually installed on the machine to begin with. There were many machines that it just wouldn't install to. Above anything it was quicksand slow on many machines it did actually install to in the general consumer domain pre beta testing and post release. Windows 7 addressed this straight out of the blocks pre testing and post release. It even worked on machi...

Korg Zero 4 mixer and the DELL M6400 with Windows 7 64-bit as a DAW? Epic Fail… giving up.

I've given up on Windows 7 for use with the Korg zero4 mixer on this machine. After yet another fresh re-install and a complete re-calibration/re-tuning the stutter and audio drop outs have gone from bad to worse when it should have got better if not to a very unlikely flawless 100% state of operation. I even went so far as to clean off all the rust like oxidation from the fire wire cable terminals and all the dust and dirt from the fire wire ports. Strangely (or it might have just been my s...

Maybe needs some touch...

To my mind direct onscreen tactile interaction would be one of the ultimate goals for something like Ableton Live for live mixing/DJing. Why? It would go a long way to truly bringing it into a more intuitive mode of DJing/live mixing within a certain DJ/live mix workflow. The only problem is that Ableton's GUI interface isn't exactly designed for touch interactivity given the miniature sized GUI controls and scene slots that are more ideally suited for mouse click interactions or a stylus an...

What's wrong with this design?

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Wednesday, April 25, 2012, In : ramble 

 
As an iPad dock from a purely functional standpoint? Not very much. But as an iPad dock from a visual design standpoint there's something about this wedge that chafed my visual cortex completely  the wrong way with the optical feedback I was getting off it no matter how hard I tried to look past it. Surely a better solution would just be to create a charging dock with a vastly smaller foot print and put a 3.5 mm jack on it for hooking up any type speakers/sound system that you liked. Oh wait...

5 years on Microsoft patent a concept?!

At the time I should have been more concerned about serving cigs and scratch cards whilst working in a cafe in Paris but for some reason the thought of creating handheld mobile devices that people would have less reason to change so often was being mulled over for reasons of creating less waste through greater longevity. But generally the main fundamental reason people change their devices so often is general boredom. Generally we've reach a point where most touch based pocket sized mobile c...

mini iPad and iPhone without the phone?

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Friday, August 12, 2011, In : ramble 

 
Having only just gotten into the talkie stick world of "I"sm by ending up with a sort of multi-tasking jail broken 3G (not the 3GS) iPhone that was handed down to me I wasn't really in any position to complain since it was seemingly pretty much given to me for free to use. But having gone through the long and at some points tricky haul of trying to get iPhone 4 like features on the phone which kind of left it in a state where it sort of worked.  

What do I mean by it sort of worked?  Well I'd...
