Griffin Technology Inc., maker of innovations for everyday life, today unveiled Slap for iPod nano (6th generation), a decidedly 80s twist on a very modern piece of technology. The wearable case takes full advantage of the return in popularity of the wristwatch, and of the new iPod nano’s timepiece functionality, in a fun, fashionable, and protective package.
“Anyone who grew up in the 80s and 90s remembers the slap bracelet,” said Melissa Lapsley, head of User Research at Griffin. “Fashion trends are cyclical, as seen by the return of New Wave fashion and new wristwatch trends. Slap for iPod nano is an opportunity to take something nostalgic and do something fun and unique with it.”
Griffin’s Slap case crosses a wristwatch and a silicone skin to create a unique, fun way to keep your iPod nano (6th generation) close at hand. Slap’s flexible, spring-steel band is wrapped in soft silicone. Snap Slap open, then snap Slap shut around your wrist; it comfortably self-adjusts to your exact size. Your iPod is surrounded by a frame of thick silicone that guards against bumps and jolts. Slap protects the dock connector and volume controls, but leaves the headphone port open so you can plug in and listen any time. And speaking of time, you can use your Slap-enclosed iPod nano as a wristwatch; just press the Sleep/Wake button through the frame to check the time or control iTunes.
Slap complements your iPod nano with a rainbow of available colors: Red, Purple, Blue, Green, Black, Orange, Yellow, and Pink. In any color, your iPod nano and our Slap case work together to create what may be the most useful and entertaining wristwatch ever.

The closer we get to the release of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, the closer Kanye West‘s G.O.O.D. Friday releases reflect his old steez. Talib Kweli andConsequence both had appearances on The College Drop-Out and “Chain Heavy” is a nice refresher to Ye’s old style, even if we’re gassed whenever Ye spits with Big Brother and up-and-comer, CyHi Da Prynce. Q-Tip—a clear path-maker for Kanye—beasted out this beat, which is laced hard with theremin! There’s only one week left of these treats and “Chain Heavy” is not on the album, so make sure you cop the real thing when it comes on November 22.

If Andre 3000 wrote his own press release, you’d…Naah. Too obvious. Unless you haven’t heard ‘If…’. Then not obvious at all. But once you hear it…so obvious. Fu*k it.
It’s 7:06 am. I’m sitting on my sofa, struggling to write a ‘proper’ press release for my new singles. I’m also monitoring my cat Willy’s recent detox from wet food. He’s sweating. Climbing the walls. It’s hard to be funny when your cat is calling you a ‘piece of sh*t.’
I tried to start with the city I’m from, followed by cheap adjectives. Toronto. Prolific. Alternative. White. Rapper.
Rappers always refer to their new songs as ‘Smash Hits’ even though nobody has heard them. Even though nobody will ever hear them.
“I’m taking over this year!” That’s a good one.
2 new singles, produced by Muneshine, off of my new album, also produced by Muneshine. My new album, which will be my last album released under the ‘D-Sisive’ monocle. Moniker.
Sorry if I confuse you with so much new music. It can be very confusing.
Sing me a swan song.
D-Sisive : Jonestown.2:Jimmy Go Bye Bye…Available for FREE download Sunday.November.28.2010.
ps. If you live close to Toronto, you should come to my show at the Horse Shoe on November.27.2010. It’s a funeral for my second album. Live band. Tuxedos. Should be fun!
New 6. min Extended Trailer/’Sneak Peek’ look at the upcoming documentary – ‘People’s Champion’ (Currently seeking Distribution) – which is focused on the 2003 ‘Iron Mic’ freestyle competition responsible for the cult-like following now amassed behind one Eli Porter.
Chromeo have teamed up with La Roux’s Elly Jackson for a dynamic electro-funk duet, “Hot Mess.” The original version appears on Chromeo’s latest album, Business Casual (Big Beat/Atlantic), but Jackson took a shine to the Canadian duo and offered to lend vocals to the new and recently completed redux. “Hot Mess” marks a rare appearance for Jackson outside of her work as La Roux.
“Hot Mess” itself is an ice-cold break up number, not unlike classic ’80s duets by Prince & Sheena Easton, the Pet Shop Boys & Dusty Springfield, or The Human League. “Hot Mess” will be released as a single complete with remixes by Turbo Recordings founder Tiga and Duck Sauce who recently dominated international charts with the single, “Barbra Streisand.” Chromeo recently worked with Parisian design house Surface To Air to produce the stunning video for “Hot Mess” which premiered online earlier this week, receiving attention from mainstream sites and taste-making blogs alike. Carrying the momentum into the New Year, the duo of Dave 1 and P-Thugg will hit the road for a string of US dates this winter.
