Get Perpendicular

As I was researching external hard drives, I was reading about perpendicular recording technology which newer hard drives are using to fit more data into a smaller space. I found this hilarious and educational music video by Hitachi explaining the technology. Check it out, it's Get Perpendicular.

If you haven't already heard, Hitachi just released the world's first terabyte drive (1 TB = 1,000 GB) which uses perpendicular recording technology.

A great new band

A few of my friends performed their first show for their new band tonight, and I was amazed. I loved their sound and I thought they played very well. I want to buy their CD - but they don't have one yet. It was just a small crowd of a few of their friends, but it was a great show. I am honored to have such talented friends.

They have a bit of a Coldplay feel, with a mix including mellow and intense songs. I was definitely getting into the beat. I am far from a band critic and not quite impartial, but I think they have potential to be big. I think they need to figure out their band name before that can happen though. ;-)

The band members include:

  • Travis on drums
  • Aaron on keys, accordion and backup vocals
  • Travis on electric guitar
  • Quinn on lead vocals, acoustic guitar and keys
  • (I forget his name) on bass
