Gemini-FirstMix-USB

Contrary to what you believed in college, being a DJ is much more difficult than just being a human iPod. You could just turn on crossfade, pop your collar and go pound PBRs, but eventually someone will turn on the Michael Bolton playlist. When that happens, you lose all music credibility (unless you’re in Lonely Island). You need to be a little more hands on with your jockey duties and Gemini wants to help. The FirstMix USB DJ Controller is the DJ equivalent of the training bra. Even if you know nothing about what you’re doing, you’re going to look good and be protected in the process. It’s got scratch wheels, rotaries and a cross fader and works with any library including iTunes. And it includes the Cross LE DJ software so you can learn to scratch like a pro. Look out Tiesto.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
