Metal / Detest Records is Closed
« on: July 09, 2012, 01:58:32 PM »
Dear Supporters,

            I would like to share an important decision I took with you. This is gonna sound
            unexpected to a lot of people around, but I decided to put Detest Records to an end.
            I will not explain you why I took this decision as this is something pretty personal,
            I will just tell you that I feel good about doing so and that this decision has not
            been taken because of a drama popping up in my life or whatever, so no need to worry!

            Detest Records was founded in August 2008 and the 4 years I spent working on this
            project have been very exciting. I got a lot of support from all around the world and
            I would like to thank you for that. Your support was my daily energy and will never be
            forgotten.

            Furthermore, running Detest Records was for me a unique opportunity to get to know some
            very cool people, be they supporters, bands’ guys, label guys, zines editors, gigs
            promoters, artists or whatever and – most of all – was for me a fascinating way to support
            the music which has been running through my veins for 15 years.

            As far as the releases which were on my agenda for the upcoming months are concerned, most
            of them will be passed to other labels around. My last releases will be the DISMA demo 12”
            which will be released in September this year and


            I will also release ASCENDED Temple of dark offerings 12” (in cooperation with Iron Bonehead,
            no release date set yet) as well as KRYPTS, STENCH OF DECAY and SWALLOWED albums 12"
            in cooperation with Me Saco Un Ojo Records, not release dates set yet) but I will NOT take
            care of the distribution of those as my partners will since my distro will be closed
            when those are available.

            I guess you’ll agree that DISMA, ASCENDED, KRYPTS, SWALLOWED and STENCH OF DECAY are
            pretty cool bands to end up this adventure!

            The distro will remain open for some more months but I will basically stop stocking new
            items. When the closing approaches, I’ll do a large sales action to move my stock. All
            pending trades will of course be fulfilled.

            Thanks again for your support, it meant and still means a lot to me. I will not vanish at
            all so … talk to you soon!

Fifty-one concertgoers were hurt and nine sustained serious injuries when a single lightning bolt struck a mast at the eastern German festival With Full Force Saturday night.

According to Spiegel Online, the lightning strikes sent some music fans flying through the air — and left behind a wasteland of destroyed tents, panicked guests and a venue flooded with mud and deep puddles. "The first showers, heavy as they were, provided just an inkling of what was to come," the site describes. "Just before 2 a.m., the next black cloud parked over the stage. And the lightning it unloaded resulted in 51 injuries, three of them landing in the intensive care unit of a nearby hospital."

Emergency services spent several hours at the scene treating those who had been sheltering in a cocktail bar near where the lightning struck, The Local reports.

With Full Force annually attracts tens of thousands of visitors in the town of Roitzschjora near Leipzig. This year, bands like SOULFLY, MACHINE HEAD, FLOGGING MOLLY and PENNYWISE performed at the event.

Nokia has announced Q4 losses and a decline in mobile phone sales – but also reported strong sales of the Windows Phone-based Lumia range.

During the last financial quarter, Nokia made a post-tax loss of €1.08billion (£905million). Phone sales were down 29% compared to Q4 2010.

In total, 113.5million devices were shifted by the company over the last three months of 2011, reduced from last year’s Q4 sales of 123.7million. This was split between smartphones (19.6million) and feature phones (93.9million).

This decline was further compounded by a fall in prices, with the average phone price hitting €53 – a year ago, it was €69.

Interzone / Why Microsoft Isn't Building Its Own Windows Phones (Yet)
« on: June 27, 2012, 03:01:00 PM »
Microsoft may be building the Surface tablet, but it isn't making its own phones, at least for now. Microsoft exec Greg Sullivan told Information Week that the company absolutely, positively doesn't have a Microsoft Phone in the works - no matter what some random analysts with unnamed sources say.

I believe him. There are two reasons Microsoft isn't building its own phones: carriers and distribution. Let me explain.

Carriers: Hey, Remember The Kin?
Microsoft "built" a phone before. (I'm using the word "built" loosely because, while Microsoft-branded, Sharp did the actual manufacturing.) It was called the Kin. It was a disaster.

Unless you're Apple, whether your phone succeeds in North America largely comes down to one thing: how's your relationship with the carriers? This is true in most of western Europe, too. Carriers control massive distribution networks, they spend millions on advertising specific phones, and they provide the all-important subsidies that make handsets look much less expensive than they actually are. They also sometimes dictate the service plan on which your phone will operate.

Microsoft signed an exclusive deal with Verizon to sell the Kin - so far, so good - and then Verizon completely screwed Microsoft on the service plans. Designed as an entry-level "texting phone plus," the Kin got priced and sold like far more capable smartphones, and it went nowhere.

Samsung, HTC, Nokia, and even Huawei have spent years nurturing carriers, and they have broad product lines that make their conversations with carriers a two-way street. If Carrier X really wants to customize Hot Phone Y, the OEM may talk it into accepting Windows Phone Z as well. Microsoft simply doesn't have the level of trust or long-term relationships with the carriers to make that work yet.

Distribution: That Nokia Deal
Microsoft has decent sales relationships with mainstream electronics stores. But that's not generally where people go to buy cell phones. To buy phones, people generally go to carriers, to specialized phone retailers like Europe's Carphone Warehouse, or even to general stores that don't carry a lot of other electronic equipment.

One of the reasons Microsoft partnered with Nokia is that Nokia has an amazing level of distribution in much of the world. We don't see Nokia's penetration here in the U.S., but Nokia has 21 "care centers" in South Africa, 21 in just the city of Delhi, and 13 in Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan. And those are just the premier support centers; Nokia devices are sold by hundreds of shops in each of those places.

Working with other OEMs gives Microsoft even greater distribution. Samsung has 130 of its own branded retail and support centers in Korea alone. A March 27 article in the Taipei Times said HTC plans to expand its presence in China from 2,000 to 4,000 retail stores.

Apple, of course, owns several hundred retail stores in 13 countries and has relationships with a slew of independent vendors as well.

Microsoft just doesn't have that level of distribution for mobile phone hardware - at least yet. The company could be working on building such a network, perhaps by convincing stores to carry its Surface tablet. Or it could just buy Nokia.

Why Surface Doesn't = Phone
So that might leave you wondering: why is Microsoft building Surface, but not a phone?

Surface (and Xbox, for that matter), don't have the same issues phones do. We've seen reports that the first Surface tablets will be Wi-Fi-only - that's specifically so Microsoft will never have to deal with carriers. And Surface tablets will probably be sold through computer retailers, with which Microsoft already has a relationship.

Surface can lay the groundwork for a future phone, though. Carrier versions of Surface will eventually develop, and the relationships Microsoft forges there could lead to talks about Microsoft-branded phones. And Microsoft, possibly through a Nokia acquisition, will work on extending its retail reach.

Microsoft's OEMs are clearly concerned. I've heard from several insiders that Samsung, the most financially successful mobile-phone company other than Apple, is working on various plans to nuture its own operating systems in case Microsoft and Google become competitors rather than vendors. Samsung's existing Bada, Tizen, and even a possible BlackBerry 10 buy are in play. But this is long-term planning, not an immediate or definite jump.

Is Microsoft building a phone today? I don't think so. Will it ever? Maybe when Windows Phone 9 rolls around.

Henry Dicks
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Henry Victor Dicks (1900 - 12 July 1977) was a British psychiatrist. He drew on his wartime experiences, which included the medical care of Rudolf Hess, to develop views on authoritarian personality and the collective psychopathology of authoritarian regimes.
Life

Henry Dicks was born at Pernau, Estonia (then in Russia) in 1900. His father was an English exporter and shipowner who also acted as British Vice-Counsul, and his mother came from an academic German family. He was educated at Pernau, Riga and St Petersburg, and by the time the family returned to England after the Russian he was able to speak English, Russian, and German fluently, as well as speaking some French.

After serving as an interpreter with Military Intelligence with the British Expeditionary Force in North Russia, and then with the British Military Mission in South Russia and the Caucasus, he studied natural sciences at St John's College, Cambridge and medicine at St Bartholomew's Hospital. In 1928 he joined the recently founded Tavistock Clinic, risng to become Assistant Medical Director there from 1934 to 1946, and publishing a psychiatric textbook in 1939.

In 1941 he joined the British Army as a Specialist Psychiatrist. Because of his ability to speak German, he was charged with medical care of Rudolf Hess in May-June 1941. From 1942 to 1944 he advised Military Intelligence on German morale; from 1944 to 1945 he advised SHAEF on psychological warfare; and from 1945 to 1946 he advised the Control Commission for Germany on de-Nazification.

In 1946 Dicks was appointed the first Nuffield Professor of Psychiatry at Leeds University, but returned to the Tavistock in 1948, and remained there until 1965 as Deputy Director and Consultant Psychiatrist in charge of the Marital Unit. From 1966 to 1970 he was a Senior Research Officer at the Centre for Research in Collective Psychopathology, University of Sussex.

Hipster/Indie Metal is still better and more innovative than your average run of the mill melodic black or melodic death.

Pfff......
Quote from: Endless
I find most metalheads to be awful because they usually only listen to shitty music or ONLY listen to HEAVY-THRASH-DEATH-DOOM-BLACK-GRINDCORE metal. Some of the stupider metalheads won't be caught dead listening to classical.

Pfff........

ENDLESS (you are pathetic).

The older I am, I have less friends and less friends desire, in fact long discard those that do not listen to metal or share my tastes, as to waste my time to show something that did not live or what you do not really believe, from less metalheads better, we become stronger (this in my personal life) work is another thing. because I deal with people from the same workplace, but outside of it I am not obliged to accept their invitations or any type of relationship.
