So what’s happening with littleBits on the web?

It was (is) a great idea, and, as I’m pretty sure I mentioned back in December when I first posted about this, something that littleBits should’ve made themselves (in my opinion anyway), and ideally it should be a part of their iOS app.

Anyway, since posting about it back in December, I’ve heard very little, and just checking out the roadmap it seems that not much has moved on. It would be a shame if it got shut down, but of course there’s no real way of knowing.

Hopefully I’ll hear something from the developer. If you want to know more, take a look at the GitHub page and check the roadmap.

SoundCloud in trouble?

Well it certainly seems that way anyway. According to this piece at Hypebot their most recent filing is not in the least bit positive. Stating that the business faces “material uncertainties”, whatever that means? And, whatever it does mean, one things is probable, it isn’t good.

It seems that there hasn’t been any good news or positivity from SoundCloud in a while, or at least that’s my take on the news. For a long time it feels like there’s just been uncertainty about their future, and that uncertainty seems to be deepening.

Now these are some very cool (and cheap) little mixers

These really are some very nice little mixers, and I thought I should post about them before they all go.

So here’s the 4 channel version.


The 6 channel version.


And lastly, the 8 channel version.


They’re pretty nice and not badly priced at all. Check the links to eBay for more details.
