Orange's OPC Computer Amplifier Speaker

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 10:09 AM

"Orange Amplifiers, the British based pioneering force in guitar amplifiers, can now announce the final specification and price for the much anticipated and revolutionary all-in-one computer amplifier speaker - The OPC. The OPC is more than a high quality all-in-one powerful computer, it has been designed to deliver playing, recording, editing and computing capabilities to musicians and music aficionados."

Boy, does this ever take me back! Back in my teens/early 20's I was really involved in live music, and I'd see an Orange amp every now and then - they're certainly unique looking! Orange has decided to make something else decidedly unique: an all-in-one computer that looks like one of their amps. The speakers at the heart of it all? Twin JBL 6.5" 55 Watt RMS Dual Concentric Speakers, boasting 15 watt RMS per channel stereo amplifier (into 4 ohms) with a 2 band EQ. Not bad! Read more...

Sales of VHS Tapes in the UK More Than Double

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home News" @ 01:31 PM

"Sales of videos, games software and music fell during the recession last year, according to the Entertainment Retailers' Association (ERA) in the UK. But music sales only dropped by 0.8% in 2009 - the lowest fall for five years...In 2009, sales of PC games declined nearly 25% to 6.4 million - little more than half the level seen as recently as 2007. One surprising result from the video industry was an unexpected upturn in sales of VHS cassettes, up from 44,377 in 2008 to 95,201 last year."

This has to be one of the most puzzling things I've read in a long time - why would there be a more than twofold spike in VHS cassette sales compared to 2008? What possible reason is there in our current world for people to purchase VHS tapes? Seriously - I'm baffled.
