Toronto’s city mayor Rob Ford is a character. The 64th mayor of the city has had a checkered history in public office, including a conflict of interest trial and the leak of a video that allegedly showed him smoking crack.

We’re quite fond of both the iPhone and iPad versions of Traktor DJ. Rather than mimic the turntable rigs of yore, they’re DJ apps that are admirably designed with interfaces tailored to touchscreen interfaces. Today, the app developer Native Instruments announced small piece of hardware designed to control the apps.
Every quarter-aged hipster wants to be a DJ at point or another. The only problem is that DJing is actually a really expensive hobby, if you do it right. (And by right, I mean legally.) It used to be that you needed turntables, a mixer, an audio interface, crates of records, a controller and at least one sweet-looking set of headphones. That was then. This is now.
