www.guitarBreakdown.com Phil X – The Drills Guitar Lesson – How To Play – Part 2 of 4 – Guitar Licks – Guitar Instruction and Breakdown YEA-YAHhhhhhhh !!!! (as Phil X would proclaim and quickly bring a smile to everyones face). We are beyond excited and proud to have Phil X be our first guest artist to share some guitar licks, advice, tips and general guitar knowledge all mixed with a healthy handful of laughter and great energy. Phil X is by far one of the brightest shining stars of current guitar community. He stands out for more reasons then just his unbelievable mastery of the instrument. This guy has all the qualities you would want in a guitar god. The ladies like him (that’s why we all picked up the guitar in the first place isn’t it), he owns every note he plays (sometimes he wrestles each note into submission with his aggression. But the notes always sound like they are willing to be slapped in the ass like the secret dirty side of every woman lol ). Add on top of all that, he is somehow void of ego and one of the funniest most generous guys you’ll ever meet. I suppose those are just some of the reasons he has toured and recorded with Bon Jovi, Aldo Nova, Triumph, Tommy Lee, Alice Cooper and a bunch of American Idol singers. He has also earned some amazing praise from Steve Lukather, Tommy Lee and Steve Vai. There are very few guitar players that posses those types of qualities. I can only think of a handful, Paul Gilbert, Guthrie Govan, Jimmy Herring and Phil X …

Two weeks ago, smack-dab in the middle of the CarrierIQ saga, Senator Al Franken pounded his fist on the table and demanded answers. He wanted to know what CarrierIQ is all about and why several US mobile providers and manufacturers felt the need to install potentially invasive software on the phones of unsuspecting consumers. Senator Franken sent Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, Samsung, HTC and Motorola a series of thirteen questions each, trying to get to the bottom of what each company is doing with the mysterious software. So far, all but T-Mobile and Motorola have complied with the Senator’s wishes, as the two remaining companies were given until December 20th to have their responses submitted (we’ll update this post as those are made public).
As we reported previously, the Senator wasn’t all too pleased by what the companies had to say. But what exactly is found in these pages and pages of documents? A few answers, and some more questions. We have pored through each company’s letter, so follow us below as we break down their responses to each of the Senator’s queries.
Note: The level of involvement by the government seems to be making an impact, as Sprint is now disabling all Carrier IQ software on its devices so that data cannot be collected anymore. Its response to Senator Franken, however, should not be discounted as it provides insight into why the carrier’s been a “valued customer” of CIQ’s since 2006, and how it’s been using the data it has collected over the past five years. Read on!
Gone are the days of going to the music store, finding a vintage CD or cassette tape, happily unwrapping it and thoroughly perusing the cover art as you listen to your new album for the very first time. In a want-it-now world, that simply takes too long — and we have the internet to thank for the change in pace. As preferences seem to shift in the music consumption universe, it feels as if tastes are centered around consuming the largest amount of music possible. And thanks to the sudden proliferation of online streaming services, satisfying those desires in record time has become a reality.
Unsurprisingly, competition is mighty fierce — consumers have options for user-made radio stations, on-demand streaming content, and cloud-based multimedia. But if you’ve been hearing the word on the street, Apple and Google could soon make their way onto the scene by offering streaming music options of their own. Almost everything these two tech giants touch turns to gold (emphasis on almost – we don’t think Ping and Buzz built the best reputations), so there’s reason to believe that these oft-rumored services will become automatic front-runners the day they’re released. Head on past the break to see some of the lucky / unlucky contestants planning to give Google and Apple a run for their (near-limitless) money, replete with a breakdown of what they offer and how hard they hit the wallet.

Motorola’s Xoom, the first Android 3.0 tablet to get into consumer hands (if you don’t count hacked Nook Colors), has a total build cost of about $ 278, according to UBM TechInsights and iSuppli, as reported by the WSJ. That’s $ 33 more than the iPad’s cost-to-build estimate. On the consumer pricing front, an iPad with 3G and 32GB of storage costs $ 729, while the Xoom is $ 799. Motorola is, of course, going to have to defend the insensible comparisons between the Xoom and the iPad’s costs and pricing. As far as I’m concerned, as far as hardware goes, the Xoom has the iPad beat by a pretty large margin, and let’s not forget that the iPad costs the same as it did a year ago.
The difference, say the analysts, is mainly in the cameras and higher-resolution display. Of course, the chipset is superior as well, with the Tegra 2 providing better graphical capabilities and the 4G upgrade included in the Xoom’s price.
That said, it’s hard to provide an apples-to-apples comparison, especially since the iPad actually has a higher-quality screen by some standards, and also the Xoom doesn’t offer a cheaper version, like the $ 500 base iPad. Android 3.0 itself isn’t exactly proven yet, either, and the iPad has already gotten some value-add in the form of the 4.3 update, which added multitasking and other enhancements.
The take-away here is that it’s a complicated situation and people will want to oversimplify. If I had to summarize, I’d say that by hardware standards, the Xoom is very competitive with the iPad, but without a ~$ 500 option, they’re going to have trouble mobilizing consumers who are on the fence.
At any rate, things might change in a couple days when the new iPad hits, so let’s all just take a chill pill until then, yeah?
Apple suing HTC over 20-odd patents before both the US District Court and the International Trade Commission has certainly caused some chaos this morning, but we thought we’d take a quick breath now that we have the complaints and tease out exactly what patents are at stake here. Of note, most of the patents were granted in the past year, but overall they span a range from 1995 to February 2. Yes, last month. That’s a pretty big range, and most of the patents are pretty dry and technical — and none of them cover anything like pinch-to-zoom. In fact, you might remember #7,479,949, “Touch screen device, method, and graphical user interface for determining commands by applying heuristics” — we blew apart the myth that it was Apple’s “multitouch patent” back when Cupertino was making noise about Palm. It’s impossible for us to say exactly how this case is going to play out — just like the Apple / Nokia lawsuit, it could settle tomorrow, or it could last for 10 years, but what we do know is that Apple’s going after Android as much as it’s going after HTC. Some of these patents are from 15 years ago and cover OS-level behavior — it’s hard to see how they can relate only to HTC’s implementation of Android and not Google’s OS as a whole. Yeah, it’s wild, and while we’re not going to blow out all 20 patents to sort out what they mean — not yet, anyway — we can certainly walk through the claims. Let’s see what we’ve got.
We’re updating this post live as we go — check back for more!
