En het probleem is niet dat je tureluurs wordt van het staren naar zo'n klein schermpje?

Accenture: beperkte belangstelling mobiele TV
Televisie kijken op de mobiel is mogelijk, maar wllen [sic] mensen dat ook? Volgens een ondersoek [sic] dat Accenture hield onder 10.000 consumenten in de USA, het Verenigd Koninkrijk, Duitsland, Japan en vijf andere landen laat zien dat de belangstelling beperkt is. Het laat zien dat mensen filsm [sic] en shows liever op hun televisie zien dan op hun computer of mobiele telefoon. Kijkers zijn wel geïnteresseerd in alterbnatieve [sic] platformen om televisie te zien, maar slechts een derde zegt televisie op hun mobiel te willen zien. [...]
Volgens Accenture is een van de grootate [sic] problemen bij de acceptatie van nieuwe producten dat ze te ingewikkeld voor de consumenten zijn om te gebruiken.
De early adaptors zijn techofielen [sic] en hebben geen problemen ermee, maar zodra het brede publiek deze producten aanschaffen komen de problemen omdat ze de werking niet begrijpen, teleurgesteld zijn in de kwaliteit en mogelijkheden en een slechte klantendienst treffen bij problemen..

(dit stukje had slechts 8 spelfouten, incl. "volgens een onderzoek ... laat zien" en "brede publiek ... aanschaffen". Heb ik nog iets over het hoofd gezien?)

Gershon Kingsley - Pop Corn (1969, US, electronic) 
Thursday, September 28, 2006, 04:21 PM - Music, - US, English
This was the original one, still available on the cd "Music to Moog by".

Gershon Kingsley recorded it in 1969, but only after three years it became a huge hit, not in his version but in the versions of Hot Butter and the Popcorn Makers, that sounded much like the re-recording of Kingsley, done with his First Moog Quartet.

It is covered a lot of times, you can find a list of all versions at popcorn-song.com.
I included three covers in the post.
One by Klaus Wunderlich as part of a medley with Apache and Corn-Flakes. (not my rip)
An other one is a version by James Last. (not my rip)
And the last one a cover by Gershon Kingsley himself, done on a Groovebox in 2000, on the sampler 'At home with the Groovebox', a beautiful relaxed version.

Kingsley is most well known in his collaboration with Jean-Jacques Perrey with the albums 'The In Sound From Way Out' (1966) and 'Kaleidoscopic Vibrations' (1967).

Anarchic System - Pop Corn (1972, FR, electronic) 
Wednesday, September 27, 2006, 06:12 PM - Music, - FR, English
A vocal version of this well known tune by Gershon Kingsley.
Tomorrow more about Pop Corn and Kingsley.

I bought this single for two euro in a little restaurant in Amsterdam: Latei. This a place at de Zeedijk 143 which not only is a restaurant, but also a second hand shop. Everything you see, including the furniture, you can buy.

Drinking Electricity - Cruising Missiles (1980, UK, electronic/new wave) 
Tuesday, September 26, 2006, 02:30 PM - Music, - UK, English
Here is the second single of Drinking Electricity I own.
On the b-side a version of 'Shaking all over' that deserves more the label electronic. I knew that song from the Who (Live at Leeds). But it is written and first performed by Frederick Heath using his pseudonym Johnny Kidd.
