We all understand that corporations solely care about revenue, profits and their shareholders. CEOs and top brass hyperfocus on their own financial interests. It’s hard to blame them, as this is how the game is played.

The Covid-19 pandemic seems to have enhanced the chasm between the average worker and the upper echelon. This marks the beginning of the end of corporate loyalty. It’s obvious that we’ve been forced

A deal to restructure ownership of the popular video app TikTok was thrown into doubt Monday when President Donald Trump vowed to block any deal that allows its Chinese parent firm to retain any control.

The comments raised fresh concerns over a weekend deal that appeared to avert a US-ordered ban of TikTok, which the Trump administration has called a national security risk and has threatened to ban without ownership changes.

The deal would make Silicon Valley giant Oracle the data partner for TikTok, with retail giant Walmart also taking a stake in a new entity to be called TikTok Global.

But details of the plan remained unclear, amid differing accounts on the American and Chinese shares of the new firm, and who would be in control of the data and algorithms.

Trump on Monday told Fox News that TikTok’s Chinese parent firm ByteDance “will have nothing to do with

Novation’s Automap Control Software

May 2, 2020 | software | No Comments

Musical development software has been in existence since the 1960s. Like any other technology. It has been refined and improved over the years to arguably its best ever state. Today, computers can make musical notes by themselves and it is widely acknowledged that the future of music is computer based. One company that is at the heart of this musical future is Automap. Automap is a musical software that assigns hardware controls to different software variables. Most MIDI controllers don’t control plug-ins well despite having sliders and knobs, Automap allows you to monitor how different controls alter the performance of the music software. Novation’s Automap Control Software is exclusive to all Novation controllers and gives direct access to all major Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs).
