You know the old saying, “If you don’t have something nice to say, keep your mouth shut.” Sure but silence doesn’t mean you can’t get your point across. Go beyond the bird with this guide to rude hand gestures of the world. Study up and you too, can be globally offensive.
Unless you sip on single malts exclusively, odds are you’ve run into a blended whiskey somewhere along the way. whisky Blender (£35 and up; roughly $55+) lets you create your own specialized blend from a selection of seven different whiskys, each available for adding in amounts as small as 10ml. Once you’re done, you can give the blend its own name, which will be handwritten on the label that adorns the 70cl corked decanter bottle, and save the mixture for future refills should the mixture be to your liking. While the wisdom of order booze you’ve never tasted before is always questionable, there’s no doubt that it’ll be far more interesting than your average bottle of Old Crow.

Technical pro has got its finger on the pulse with the release of the DPU55 professional Double USB/SD Player. This professional MP3 mixer provides the solution for the DJ that does not want to risk setting up a laptop in a club setting, it’s perfect for the DJ that wants to integrate his or her vinyl collection into their growing collection of MP3’s. Easily integrated into a venue’s PA system via stereo RCA outputs, the DPU55 is a tool for the DJ that will be forever valued.
The music is connected via 2 32GB USB sticks and Dual SD Card at a 32 GB max. With this amount of space you can bring enough high quality MP3’s to play for a whole week.
Or you can bring Multiple USB flash Cards and swap them in and out like CD’s. With this amount of music at a gig you have choices you previously did not have. Bringing 30 crates of records to a party is not a fun thing! Now you can bring hours and hours of music in varying genres and never worry about whether or not you brought that one special cut!
The unit hosts an LCD display that will show all of your ID3 tags on from your files and a BPM readout which will allow you to match the beats on both songs to achieve that blend that only the elite can pull off! The face has a number of controls including a folder/track browsing knob with push feature! That means once you scroll to the song you need, use the same knob and push it in to cue it up. No need to search for another function or even move your hand! Other features include and essential loop function, repeat, reverse playback, built in brake effect which allows you to stop or start a song an achieve the same sound a record would make when starting or slowing down (A great DJ effect that will always come in handy!)
Use the onboard scratch function! In today’s modern era it is impossible to get that scratch sound like the old days when DJ’s used all vinyl. Knowing a scratch function should not sound like a robot’s bleeps and blips but rather a warm, thick “wiki wiki” the engineers at Technical Pro put a little extra time into this effect making sure your scratches sound as thick and “fresh” as they did in 1980!
Use the cue, search and pitch control at a varying rate of + to – 16%. This will allow you to play it like you would a CD deck with all the extra options that a CD deck doesn’t provide or that in the past would require efx boxes and other bulky equipment. DJs, if you are going to make the transition to the future you need this!
Whether you write novels, take notes, or make grocery lists, the modern writer needs an app that just gets out of the way and makes writing less painful and more fun.

So Scribe will be right here, waiting on you.
