Everything is a Remix is a four part series that investigates the history of remixing, sampling, stealing, transforming and how that mentality spills out of the context of music and into a wider mindset. You could even say that everything is a remix.

Can’t wait to see the others.
Google Instant went live last week.

I wrote this… slowly.
Propellerheads decided to build the world’s biggest drum machine.
Nice work but I’m sure they can get a bit more out of it in the future.

More shopping smartness, this time from ASDA. Their new Price Guarantee lets you compare the price of your shop against the other supermarkets. Enter 6 set of numbers from your receipt and the system does the rest. If it’s cheaper elsewhere ASDA refund the difference.
It’s being supported by a nationwide ad campaign showing those good old ‘regular mums’ trying it out.
The price check is powered by mySupermarket.co.uk
Square lets you accept payments, everywhere. No contracts, monthly fees, or hidden costs.
Brilliant concept. Few security concerns. One to watch.
