Why Google Chromecast Isn’t Apple Airplay

Using your large television as an external monitor has been done since the beginning when television adapters were created.  Back in the early days of monitors, VGA was our only option.  When VGA was hooked up to the regular television, the results were very promising.  At the time, a television was a cheaper alternative to buying a huge CRT monitor and trying to find place for it at the same time.  Eventually, monitors got smaller and cheaper to the point where size and space was never an issue.  Now that televisions have gotten larger and more menacing, it seems like the time is right to port our monitors over once again.

The only trouble is trying to configure your video card settings so that it will allow your television to act like a monitor.  Some monitors can do this but are limited to only showing videos or pictures.  Google created …

ANDRE 3000 AS JIMI HENDRIX IN NEW BIOPIC REVEALED

When a popular music artist looks or sounds like another artist, it is not usually a good thing.  It has happened before and it is bound to happen once again – but whenever someone like Eminem rises to stardom, any other “Eminem” out there has to deal with being called a copy or a poser.  What sucks is that sometimes the artist may just “look” like another artist, while the music they produce is quite different and of a different level entirely.  There is a rare occasion when it is okay to look like another famous artist, and that is when the frame of time is decades apart.  It works even better when they are dead.

If a jazz musician right now was strikingly similar in looks to someone like Dave Brubeck – it would only help their cause.  They would seem as if they were the return of an …

BEYONCÉ REPORTEDLY SCRAPS 50 SONGS

What most of the general public doesn’t know is that when an artist produces an album, those songs which end up on the CD are merely the songs that made the cut.  The original pool of songs may be hundreds of songs deep – but only twenty perfect of anything that is recorded ever makes it to an album.  The selection process here is actually very important, since only a few of those songs will actually go on to be popular and sell.  Because of the way music is made on an album – artists know that they are limited to what they can choose.  They also know that they’d better get it right on the first try, since any flopped album can be mean big consequences.

The perfectionist music artist is quite common, and the best of the best are known for being extremely picky about what is released …

2013 Sees America Ship In Overseas Talent

Do Americans prefer to listen to artists that hail from America, or do they like to hear music outside of their own country?  When people talk about artists in general, they don’t seem to make an emphasis on where they are from – because to a listener this type of stuff should not matter.  What does matter is how well they perform and what type of music they are good at making.  Most of the rap music we hear is born right here at home, but that doesn’t discount that fact that there are plenty of British and non-American rappers who also have something to say.

Electronic music is really up in the air these days.  However, it is still safe to say that most of what is being produced is not produced here at home.  France, Germany, and the UK all have their own way of interpreting electronic music, …

Dr. Conrad Murray issues final warning

Michael Jackson may no longer be alive (and thus have no more music to create), but the controversy over his death continues today.  His longtime doctor, and now convicted doctor, is being subjected to the masses once again as another claim and lawsuit comes forward.  The Jackson family seems to be looking for more people to blame over either the hiring of the doctor or the lack of oversight in his care of Michael Jackson.  Murray is growing tired of the accusations, and is already serving out his time for his conviction.  If it weren’t enough that he lost his license and is serving time in prison, the man is now being accused once again of another injustice.  He just wants his ordeal to be over.

One thing he has up his sleeve is a supposed bombshell about Michael Jackson.  Murray has warned that if he is forced to go …
