Paying two, three or even ten times as much as usual for a taxi ride across town sounds like a pretty crappy deal, right? But I’m sure you can imagine times when you’d be happy to pay it – times, for example, when demand is so high that it’s impossible to get a ride. And that’s the theory behind Uber, a mobile app that’s aiming to use basic economic theory to eliminate taxi bottlenecks.

The AMPLIFi guitar amp from Line 6

Line 6 has unleashed what's claimed to be an entirely new kind of guitar amplifier. In addition to a powerful guitar speaker sitting behind the red grille at the bottom, the AMPLIFi is also home to full range stereo speakers in the black top section. The design is claimed to offer players a wider frequency range, but the inclusion of Bluetooth technology also allows the system to be used as a streaming audio speaker. Impressive stuff, but the company didn't stop there. A companion app has been created that opens up the system to a new world of tone. The Remote app will even suggest matches for the sound of guitars in favorite songs so that you can easily nail the tone of your heroes, or jam along to tracks without sounding (too) out of place.  Read More
