Charge your smartphone at festivals using the power of music…

If you’re at Glastonbury this weekend or heading off to any other festivals this summer you could find this interesting. Orange have unveiled a t-shirt that can be used to charge smartphones by harnessing the power of sound and it’s being trialed at Glasto. In the future this could mean that you may never be caught short with a flat battery whilst watching your favourite band. Click here to read the article.

The first ever iPad gig

Manchester band Everything Everything are making a musical first this evening by streaming their London gig live to iPads. There’s a custom-made app for the occasion called ‘Man Alive – Everything Everything: Live at Union Chapel’.

It’s free.

Band frontman Jonathan Higgs said he wanted to make the gig available to people who couldn’t get tickets because the show sold out. He told

“We wanted to try something unique. The concert sold out and we wanted to do something special for fans who couldn’t get tickets. We couldn’t hijack a TV channel but now we can play live to people on the bus, or wherever they want to hear it.”

Well – not every fan on the bus of course, only the ones with iPads… Still, it’s a nice perk for fans and a good example of iPad app as TV channel. It will also be available to stream on

The Proporta office gets that little bit more musical

With our ears permanently fixed to the ground on the latest gadgets to hit the market, Max’s birthday brought with it the pinnacle of musical technology…



Do you remember your first Nokia?

There are many weird and wonderful videos lurking on YouTube, but this particular video amused us all at Proporta.

Cast your mind back to your old Nokia (ah yes, the hours we used to waste playing snake), and you’ll remember the extremely irritating ringtones they came with.

Obviously not everyone found these ringtones as annoying as we did. This guy on YouTube has dedicated some long hours to adding a back beat.
