      DJ Thugys iz in da house!

      I agree with Paul, the panoramic street view stuff could be really usefyul, especially if you are going to somewhere you have never been to before.

      Two thumbs down to street view because they hide the original virtual reality view. I much prefer the virtual reality view as default and toggle between the new 2D view and the older 3D view.

      I say two thumbs up for Streetside and now it's only waiting till you can expose live data on it instead of watching ads from 2yrs ago framed in the picture...

      Well, forget about the "lame" DJ Panel. This is nothing real new. If you own a touchscreen you can touch on every mixing/producing software as you want.

      But have a look at this one:

      Like the Street Side. Some people have anxiety issues about going to unfamiliar
      places.  It can help to see exactly what an area looks like before going there.

      I hope Laura was joking about Dead Mau 5 Wink My brother always calls him that just for fun.

      Joel Zimmerman AKA Deadmau5 DOES use regular PCs at home. He started out just using FL-Studio on regular generic computers. He tours with MacBooks because it's more portable but it's nice to see that even today after all the money he's made he still likes messing with Windows machines.

      Those transparent DJ panels are quite nice but they're even more expensive than the old Jazzmutant Lemur controllers.
      I'm waiting for Gesturespark to be released. It looks like allot of fun.

      I'm guessing someone's gonna come out with a controller like that for WP7 once Mango is released because of the new UDP support.

      It says: "Nice show! Guys. I use Streetside because it's fun living in shanghai and exploring NY. Otherwise i need to agree with laura there is no practical use."

      p.s. Try to look at it like a Magic Eye poster from the 90s.

      The name "deadmau5" originated when he found a dead mouse in his computer while he was replacing his video card (likely a PC Smiley. He discussed this with chat room users and became known as "that dead mouse guy." His nickname "Dead Mouse" was too long for the IRC character limit, and was then shortened to deadmau5.
