DIY music production software like Logic Pro X is now the mainstream. Here’s what you need to know

TLDR: The Ultimate Logic Pro X Music Production Bundle is a music lover’s dream, an 8-course collection in using this high-powered production suite to make all your own beats.

Paul McCartney did it. So did Bruce Springsteen and the Rolling Stones. From Led Zeppelin to Radiohead to Foo Fighters, right up to today’s hottest artists like Billie Eilish, musicians have often sequestered themselves away from the usual recording studio setting to create their music in a secluded outpost somewhere.

But in the age of COVID, DIY music production is no longer the exception to the rule. In 2020,  everyone from

Apple is building foldable iPhone prototypes

It’s been a pretty busy day for Apple news. After reports that the company would remove the touch bar and rienstate MagSafe on its upcoming MacBook Pros, as well as launch redesigned iMacs with an all new design, a new report from Bloomberg claims that Apple is actively working on a foldable iPhone.

While the report stresses the company “hasn’t solidified plans to actually launch a foldable iPhone,” the company has started work on some prototypes in its lab. At the moment the prototype “hasn’t expanded beyond a display,” but that’s the most important part of a folding phone, right?

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is the most performant public cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider for running online transactional processing (OLTP) workloads, but Amazon Web Services (AWS) remains the best value for the money.

That’s according to the 2021 Cloud Report from Cockroach Labs, the company behind the open source CockroachDB database, which recently raised a $160 million mega-round of funding.

“Declaring a winner was much harder to declare than in years past,” according to the authors of the report, as the gap on most metrics was razor thin.

The researchers benchmarked each of the major providers according to 54 machine configurations

The cloud is now mission-critical

A new study from Cloudreach and IDC entitled “Cloud Trends 2021” (registration required) surveyed more than 200 CIOs. Questions focused on the COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on the use of cloud computing and digital transformation. Keep in mind that the sponsor has a dog in the hunt in that they sell technology.

Outgoing Trump administration puts Xiaomi on an investment blacklist

In a shock move, the Department of Defence under the outgoing Donald Trump administration has put nine Chinese companies on a blacklist citing military connections. Tech giant Xiaomi is the surprise inclusion in the list.

The blacklist bars US individuals and companies from investing in these firms. This is different from Huawei‘s trade ban where Americans were blocked from doing with the tech giant. So, Xiaomi won’t be barred from using Android, Google Play Store, or Qualcomm’s chips.

Under this new ban, the commerce department could also block the import of “sensitive technology” from China or any other country.  This
