Motion control is still considered to be in its infancy, even though it has been around for quite some time. We already have motion control in gaming – but to bring it to a computer for tasks other than playing games leaves us with a few problems that need to be solved. The first problem is also the oldest problem, and it comes in the form of speed and precision. Both of these things are hard to achieve with a system that has to zap signals around to each other. The way you use it will also determine how well it actually performs. For example, it would be near impossible to create an intricate composition in Photoshop using such a method.
But if used for something like lighting control, it might just be easier to control. Some have taken the idea and ran with it to get the most out …

If you ask any professional battle DJ out there why he or she is battling, they would tell you that it is for the respect rather than the prize. Sure, there are prizes to be had (some of them that cannot even be bought), but the real prize comes in the form of press. People will come to know your name and understand where you are coming from.

One positive about the influx of new gear is that there is more incentive to use it.
Not every competition out there has to be large and publicized, there are plenty of small online competitions that allow bedroom DJs to strut their stuff, and some of the low profile DJs gets a chance to make a big …

Let’s say your shop specialized in machining goods and materials for other vendors – it is safe to say that you won’t be taking orders online due to the nature of the goods. This doesn’t mean you can’t have an information website that displays all of your work as well as your opening hours. At the very least, it shows your customers that you are up to date with the times. Even if you hate the internet, you cannot ignore its value to a business. Musicians and artists should follow the same principal.
At the very least a musicians’ website can show off their biography or their contact information. More robust websites might have links to media files and even personal diaries or blogs, but this is really just icing on the cake. Having …

I think everyone has their own system of staying organized that is not necessarily the best or most optimal way to do things – but it works. How many different apps are there to help you keep track of tasks that need to be done during the day? There are probably thousands of them. But that app is not good if you do not remember to incorporate it into your daily life and you own personal system. Calendars still exist on the refrigerators of many people at home, and yes, they have to sit down and write on them with your standard ink pen. It might seem strange that we still organize our thoughts using pen and paper, but often this is the best method.
This is especially true from trying to remember the names of songs that you want to purchase later on. If you jot them down on …
