Modding a Boombox for the iPad/iPhone/iPod

I enjoy playing my music collection using the remote speaker feature of iTunes from both my Mac and my Apple TV (Used in the RV when camping) using Apples Airport Express. But I got tired of dragging around my Airport Express, patch cables, the boom-box and both power cords. So I decided to integrate them all together. I took apart the old boom-box, cut out the back of the battery compartment, and integrated both an iPod charging cube and the Airport Express. I fixed the ac adapter back inside the cut out hole, so that I can unplug the AE simply by pulling it out, so its not permanent. My son suggested I also add a dock. Using one from my 1st gen iPhone, I broke out the Dremel tool and made a drastic mod, chopping off the side and front lips, the the connector sits above the surface more or less. I have breathed new life into that old boom-box as it is now a cross functional music playing machine, supporting the original iPod, iPod Touch, iPhones (all of 'em) and the iPad. And now with the iPad, its a table top movie theater too!

There are a lot of software programs with a lot of
different features out there, but once you know what kind of music you want, looking for just the right software won.

Have you ever sat back and listen to the radio or television, or maybe at
a night club and wonder how to make rap beats.
If you are able to make excellent loops, then you certainly can now how you can
make your personal Rap beats really simply, plus they will sound fantastic.

This process is usually favoured by people newer to internet
marketing and business, as those who have been running
an internet business realise that delivering products manually will not only take up all of your spare
time, but will eventually lead to many disgruntled customers,
and a number of customers thinking they've been scammed. With the "information age" well under way, this is not surprising. A thought in this substance, produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.
