The K-State Student Union announces the relocation and expansion of the Union Computer Store to inside the Union Bookstore. The computer store, an Authorized Apple Campus Reseller, will have increased visibility with the new location effective Thursday, Aug. 19.

“We are extending our operating hours to match those of the Union Bookstore and will be able to service the campus more efficiently,” said Chris Loehr, computer store manager.

A full inventory featuring MacBooks, iPads, iPods, accessories, as well as a select line of Dell laptops, will still be available to those with valid K-State IDs. The store will continue to offer education discounts on Student Select Microsoft and Adobe products. Back-to-school offers will end Sept. 7.

A grand re-opening is planned for the near future. For more information about the Union Computer Store, visit the new location on the ground floor of the Union, the website at, or call 785-532-7319.

Misa Digital Guitar Demo

January 19, 2010 Leave a comment

If there’s one thing Guitar Hero and Rock Band taught us, it’s that we don’t need strings to be a rock star and rip gnarly riffs with the best of them. Sure, they’re just video games, but the Misa Digital Guitar is the real deal, and it’s just the kind of stringless guitar living room legends have been waiting for.

Consider the Misa a glorified MIDI controller whose sound “is limited only by what you connect it to.” There are 144 note buttons for the left hand to sift through, while the right hand rocks out by tapping a touch screen control pad. And of course it’s powered by Linux, which means the door has been left wide open for programmers to conjure up some funky modifications.

We can already sense the blood boiling from traditional guitarists who see this as yet another abomination of music, but if it helps any, Misa’s designers admit their creation shouldn’t be compared to acoustic or electric guitars saddled with strings. After all, “those are different instruments, for different art forms, for different music. This is electronic music.”
