The ATTIGO TT was created by Scott Hobbs, a student at Dundee University studying innovative product design. For his final year project he’s created a touch screen turntable that lets DJ’s loop, sample and scratch wave forms just as you would a record. The size of the touchtable is approximately the same as a standard turntable, making the physical interaction nearly the same. Where this takes off is in the flexibility and features included right at your fingertips, no longer locked up on a computer screen. The ATTIGO TT is currently a working prototype, and Scott is looking for manufacturers to partner with.

    I hate to say it, but Dan’s right. What you suggest would be if WBUR tried to disngtiuish all its local programming as being COMPLETELY SEPARATE from the national NPR programming. It doesn’t because:A: It wouldn’t work.B: It’d be counterproductive.Moreover, the lack of distinction between NPR The Brand and NPR The Media Company is something people have both used, and been used by, for years. Nobody knows, or cares, that This American Life is *NOT* an NPR show; it’s a PRI program. Ditto for On Point which is NPR, but produced at WBUR, and Here Now (which airs right after OP on WBUR) which is PRI, but also producted at WBUR. Or that Car Talk might be recorded at WBUR but it is not a WBUR show or owned by WBUR in any way.Hell, most listeners STILL don’t get that when you call 888-WAITWAIT or 888-CARTALK, you are NOT going to be put live on the air while you’re listening; all calls are recorded to voicemail and the shows call you back while taping (Wednesdays mid-day for Car Talk, Thursday evenings for Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me)The branding surrounding Boston.com and the Boston Globe is IDENTICAL. Nobody, except perhaps the wonks on Morrissey Blvd, makes any distinction between the two. And any attempt by the Globe to create an artificial distinction will only confuse the readers and dilute the brand.
