Let the mourning end for now. Rest In Peace Steve Jobs.
Moving on, I am one of the people that supposed electronic analysts are likely scratching their heads over. I have ordered an iPhone 4s. It will be a nice step up from the iPhone 3Gs that I currently have. I’m also one of many who didn’t mind that Apple didn’t release an iPhone 5. Seriously, the fact that bankers and other fortunetellers are disappointed with Apple for not calling it the iPhone 5 need to get a life. Apple never said it was going to release an iPhone 5.
On to more pressing issues. I’ve found that Safari is becoming unusable. Apple has yet to fix a flaw that is causing my entire computer to slow to a crawl when I have multiple tabs open in the browser; especially when they contain media things like audio and flash. So today marks my first post being created using Google’s Chrome browser. I’m not fond of Google either, they don’t live up to their motto. Personally, I do think they have the inklings of evil. I’ve switched to using Bing as my first choice of search. In a way, my use of all things net related by way of browsing and searching are in flux. Change is good, but at the same time, it’s a little like wondering where my next round of comfort is going to come from.
Today also marks the return of links to Amazon. Seems they have decided that it’s ok for some of us to start using them again. The irony is, there are no Amazon links for today’s artist – he’s not on Amazon.
Enough about tech, it’s time for some music.
The song is Keep Moving On by Nate Hall. Not a bad title for the tech world. The thing I really dig from the moment the song starts is the movement posed by the pulsating synth. The drum machine programming certainly adds a nice compliment to that part as it shifts from part to part. Nate has a really well defined flow that helps his vocal ride right over the top of the top notch production going on underneath.
If there is something to strive for it’s awesome sound by design. That’s a bit of a take on the philosophy set forth by Steve Jobs and Apple. Nate has certainly got this going in spades with this track. According to his bio he’s all of 18 years old. That’s an impressive feat. While I haven’t delved too far into who did the production, I’m guessing that Nate had some hand in it. That gives this cat a moment of pause that at some point it would be cool to help him produce something in the future. Then again, I’m in the middle of planning and producing my next release.
While he’s not full out doing albums yet, I do suggest taking note of Nate Hall and getting hooked.
