Dr Dre to join Apple as part of Beats buy, report says

By Tech No Comments

Apple is after more than just headphones in its rumoured multibillion dollar acquisition of Beats, according to a report suggesting Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine will join the tech giant.

From Compton to Cupertino!!!

This story just keeps unfolding in a great way. Not only is this news big for the Hip/Hop community, but for our country as a whole. This acquisition shows that we are truly making progress in regards to accepting people regardless of their past or their race. And let’s be honest, everyone involved in this acquisition has the potential to make some serious money and that could be the sole motivation. But nonetheless, regardless of the reasoning, the thought of having one of Hip/Hop’s pioneer work side by side with the tech world’s leader of innovation, well…All I can say is there will be a lot of SWAG involved.

Source say the deal is now “70 percent certain” to go through so, Spotify “Watch Out” because Apple’s coming for you head. After all, nobody told you to come into the game and try to steal Apple’s iTunes market share…This should be interesting!!!

Do you think we’ve made progress as a country or is it all about the money?

Mark Cuban admits he’s a racist and a bigot?

By Tech No Comments

Mark Cuban, billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, makes some pretty aggressive comments as it relates to racism and bigotry…

In the interview with Inc, he addresses his disdain for Donald Sterling’s comments and his views on race–which we applaud.

However, then he made references to himself being both prejudice and bigoted to a certain degree; and stated that everyone is.

At Gadgent, we love Mark Cuban as an owner and more so as a self made billionaire, but to make this statement is kind of concerning.

All in all, we respect his honesty and his transparency. It’s tough to have these type of conversations when you live in a “glass house” like he does.

To wrap up, Mark did say that he is committed to ending prejudice. In his businesses, he makes it a point not to only call someone out for hateful acts, but to educate and assist in changing them.

“I’ll try to work with people…I’ll try to give them a chance to improve themselves” Cuban says. 

He doesn’t want to just throw someone away, the same way they are. He it truly tryng to make the world a better place.

You’ve got our support Mark…
