Paul Gray Left Us Yesterday

Paul Gray Left Us Yesterday

I and the Axiom lost a great friend and supporter of 16 years yesterday. There is no way to express the impact Paul had on my life as a friend, business partner, band mate and general partner in crime.

The day the iPad didn't change the world.

Well, if anyone follows gadgets or tech has to know that today Steve Jobs of Apple announced the release of the iPad.

Today at long last the world got it's first look at the real thing and unlike the game changer it has been hyped as, it seems to be as earth shattering as a wet fart. What it turns out to be is a larger iPod Touch or iPhone without the phone function.
