Bose files lawsuit against Beats Electronics due to infringement of noise cancellation technology

Dancing Astronaut - house, electro, progressive, dubstep

For years, the burning rivalry between Bose and Beats Electronics has persisted as consumers continue to argue amongst themselves regarding one brand’s superiority over the other. Bass, treble, mid range and clarity are just a few of the elements that factor into one’s purchase and over the years, it has become increasingly difficult to discern which team creates the “better” headphone. Despite finding ways to coexist in the past, Bose now has reason to attack Beats and possibly inflict heavy damage on its number one competitor: patent infringement. Yesterday, the soundsystem and headphone maker filed a lawsuit against its younger opponent, accusing Beats of unlawfully using its noise-canceling technology.

As of now, it is unknown whether or not Apple, which announced in May its plans for acquiring Beats for $3 billion, will follow through with buying out the company.

Bose’s decision is rooted in its history of developing sound-cutting headphones, which the company’s founder began in 1978. It is 50 years of research that the company claims to have been wrongfully deemed Beats’ property, including five of 27 patents and pending patents used in its QC20 headphone set.

Dutch company Yalp Interactive creates ‘FONO,’ a solar-powered DJ booth

Dancing Astronaut - house, electro, progressive, dubstep

Dutch design company Yalp Interactive has introduced a new solar-powered DJ booth for use in public places. The new technology is called FONO and allows people to play music stored on their mobile phones. The outdoor booth has been installed in public parks across Holland, Finland, and Denmark. FONO is aimed at ‘young people,’ with the hopes of connecting people to music in a positive way and encouraging them start DJing at an earlier age (as if Holland needed that). The CDJ-esque decks feature FX, sync, and cue functions, but will not allow you to change the pitch of the selected tracks.

When asked to describe why the technology was created, Yalp Interactive stated:

“[Fono is] made to dare minors and teens to explore their musical creativity, to let them make, rearrange and share music with their mobile phone and to create a social meeting place for them”. As if Dutch DJs weren’t rampant enough, now they will be starting even younger. We’re talking the potential to have these bad boys in playgrounds and at schools! Yalp released a mini commercial / informational to discuss the future of this Fono, and even though it isn’t a fully functioning booth used by more experienced producers and DJs, people can practice the basics and keep the music going anywhere.

In the latest victory for streaming services, T-Mobile has announced a partnership with roughly 85% of all its users’ favorite music streaming channels. Starting in the next few weeks, T-Mobile users will be able to stream as much music as they want, whenever they want, without having to pay a dime in data fees. Customers can browse iTunes Radio playlists at their leisure, and never have to worry about whether or not their Spotify playlist is eating up all their data for the month. They’re free to explore Pandora, Rhapsody, iHeartRadio, Slacker and Milk Music, too. And to add to the initiative, the mobile company has recently released a music streaming site of its own, unRadio. This service has a database of 20 million songs and will be free for T-Mobile subscribers who have unlimited data plans, or just $4 a month for those who don’t. Not bad, T-Mobile. Not bad.

Weekend Rewind: Sander van Doorn – Apple (Bart B More Remix)

Dancing Astronaut - house, electro, progressive, dubstep

The year 2008 was a successful and significantly defining time for dance music elite Sander van Doorn. He released his debut artist album Supernaturalistic through Spinnin’ Records and launched his own imprint Doorn Records, all while winning the IDMA award for “Best Breakthrough DJ” (beating Axwell, Calvin Harris and deadmau5). One doesn’t go about becoming part of dance music’s contemporary greats without making a handful of good decisions along the way, including knowing exactly who to select to remix your material. Fellow Dutchman Bart B More took Sander’s own early Doorn Records release “Apple” and unleashed the record’s stunning electro house potential. Between the simple but mesmerizing synth-work and contagiously rhythmic percussion patterns, Bart B More fashioned an elegant yet energetic record that still stands out among the producer’s eclectic discography.
