Variax’s acoustic tones, vs. real acoustic and a piezo-equipped solidbody electric

So, I’ve had the Variax for a few weeks now, and unfortunately it is going back. This is due to weird glitching, and the models deciding to just switch on their own. Clearly an electronics problem, and while I could get it repaired, I don’t feel very comfortable keeping a $700 (I got it on […]

T-Mobile gets the iPhone…..which I think is cool

So finally, T-Mobile has gotten the iPhone, after all these years. Many people will not care, many will be happy, and of course as anything with tech, there will be vitriol spewed. I personally think it’s a good thing. While every carrier has their fans, the fact of the matter is no one carrier is […]
