Leather Carrying Case iPad 3G tablet

If you have an iPad realize that the screen is like the iPhone and very sensitive to external light from the sun, windows, or light bulbs. Adjusting the angle slightly takes care of the problem, but the iPad surface is metal that is virtually frictionless (i.e. it slides all over the place if you try to prop it up for better viewing). In my opinion you want a case that allows you to use the device while still in the case.

If you are going to use this in an airplane, breakfast table, etc. you need a cover that allows you to adjust the viewing angle. This case allows you to stand the device upright vertically and horizontally. The fit of the case is OK, but not quite snug enough. The edges of the case are a little too big and cover a VERY small part of the screen. All the buttons/charging port are available when in the case.

I didn't notice any strange smells as mentioned by other reviewers.

The case looks nice, but it's the thinnest leather (or faux leather) you have ever seen in your life. However, I didn't spend $50 so I am satisfied.

If you plan to watch a lot of video, this is a good case for the $.

If you are fine spending $50 for a case then buy something that is better quality and fit

Music Productions. Sonar or Pro Tools?

Cakewalk sonar is musician application for producing an audio project. This software has long been grown by the name of Cakewalk Pro Audio, which later changed its name to Sonar. This software is based on midi and audio. The midi editing tools is very comprehensive and allows users. While for audio based on the editing is pretty good too. In practice the musicians prefer this because the midi editing software is very complete. While for audio recording applications, this software is not recommended because of various weaknesses, such as audio drop out problem. This software is only running on PC.

Pro Tools is also an application for producing an audio project, which was previously more inclined to the audio recording and editing. But lately, especially for its most recent Pro Tools 8. In Pro Tools 8, midi editing is also quite good. But practically, and since a long ago, this software is familiar using on studio based on recording and audio editing. This software is running on PC or MAC.

The Decibel

The decibel (dB) is a logarithmic unit of measurement that expresses the magnitude of a physical quantity (usually power or intensity) relative to a specified or implied reference level. Since it expresses a ratio of two quantities with the same unit, it is a dimensionless unit. A decibel is one tenth of a bel, a seldom-used unit. The decibel is widely known as a measure of sound pressure level, but is also used for a wide variety of other measurements in science and engineering (particularly acoustics, electronics, and control theory) and other disciplines. It confers a number of advantages, such as the ability to conveniently represent very large or small numbers, a logarithmic scaling that roughly corresponds to the human perception of sound and light, and the ability to carry out multiplication of ratios by simple addition and subtraction. The decibel symbol is often qualified with a suffix, which indicates which reference quantity or frequency weighting function has been used. For example, "dBm" indicates that the reference quantity is one milliwatt, while "dBu" is referenced to 0.775 volts RMS.[1] The definitions of the decibel and bel use base-10 logarithms. For a similar unit using natural logarithms to base e, see neper.
