Stereolizer Turns Your iPad Into 1980s Radio-Cassette
"Jon Bon Jovi, the hair-metal legend, has been whining about digital music. Speaking to London’s Sunday Times, he said:
Kids today have missed the whole experience of putting the headphones on, turning it up to 10, holding the jacket, closing their eyes and getting lost in an album; and the beauty of taking your allowance money and making a decision based on the jacket, not knowing what the record sounded like, and looking at a couple of still pictures and imagining it.
Well, Mr. Bon Jovi, you might like to check out the Stereolizer, which turns your iPad into a 1980s stereo, complete with twitching VU-needles, a big volume knob and a tape deck, so you can pirate your music the old-fashioned way."
