The author of one of our favorite music apps for Facebook,Muziic, is back with a new app that brings some pizazz to your YouTube music listening sessions. Muziic DJ is a web application that turns YouTube into a virtual DJ studio, enabling you to create playlists and mix the tracks into a seamless party mix.
The app lets you search YouTube for tracks and albums, which you can play in two virtual “decks” or save as playlists for later. Features such as Auto DJ (which automatically switches to the next track) and crossfade make the DJ-ing experience quite enjoyable. The app also supports some simple effects such as “brake” and “reverb,” as well as additional loops and sounds you can play over the songs.

A Briton arrested in Thailand faces years in jail, or even a death sentence, for urging redshirt rioters to burn down a shopping centre.
Jeff Savage, a 48-year-old married man, originally from Tonbridge in Kent, has been accused by Thailand's prime minister of being a long-time member of the anti-government redshirt movement and a key agitator in the riots which saw swaths of the capital burn last week.
In his first prison interview since being arrested on Sunday, Savage, who has lived in Thailand for nine years, told the Guardian he was being fitted up for crimes he did not commit. He denied he was involved in burning down the Central World shopping centre in the heart of Bangkok's shopping district.
"I am being stitched up, being fitted up. I thought it was just for overstaying my visa, but now this is serious," Savage said from behind bars in Bangkok remand prison.

- 5 x picture resolution (program prroviders will upscale non hi-def material)
- Dolby Digital surround (selected programs only)
- Wide screen 16:9 aspect ratio
The Hi-Def service is for Platinum and Gold subscribers only.
On a Thai language poster advertising the service it looked to me as if the cost of the Hi-Def service is an extra Bt590/- per month which I guess is for the digital decoder. Don't hold me to this as my Thai language skills are basic, If you are interested in Hi-Def , please phone 02-7252525 or call in to your local Truevisions shop to see a demo of the Hi-Def service.

Small investors, married couples, motorists and holidaymakers are likely to be hit with tax rises under plans unveiled by the coalition Government. Cameron confirmed that the coalition Government would push ahead with plans to increase sharply capital gains tax on the sale of second homes, shares and buy-to-let properties.
More money is expected to be raised by changing the way flights are taxed, which could add more than £300 to the cost of a long-haul family

If you are located outside the US and desperately want to seek access to a service like Hulu then Picrap could be the answer to all your prayers. It aggregates over 1,000 TV shows, full movies as well as movie trailers, news and much more.
It doesn’t host the content itself. Instead, it pulls them in from various sources around the web (like Megavideo and Hulu) and presents them in a neat, searchable interface.

The problem is many bars mute the commentary and play music for the girls (I assume). So what if you want to hear the commentary in air conditioned comfort. Now that would be a much shorter list of bars.
- Gulliver's at the north end of Beach Road
- Shenanigan's, The Avenue and Jomtien
- Tim's Bar, 2nd Road (room behind go-go)
