Avid is making a free, but limited version of Pro Tools

Avid’s Pro Tools software is not cheap, something the company seems to have realized with a new, completely free version of its digital audio studio with a more limited feature set.

Leatherman is making the best charm bracelet ever, out of screwdrivers

KGI Securities’ Ming-chi Kuo, in a note reported on by AppleInsider, says his own research alongside numerous Apple patent filings have led him to believe that the pen will arrive in the second quarter of this year.

Kuo says the stylus will probably be an optional accessory so as not to bump up the base price of the “iPad Pro.” The analyst expects the first iteration of the stylus to be relatively simple in technical terms, with the possibility…
