This is the future of music. She is a 20-something UK artist who adds 1980's beats w/ 1990's R&B sounds and 21st Century technology. Her stage name is Charli XCX (pronounced Charley XX) and her most recent mixtape, which you can download below, provide snippets of what she has to offer. I've known of her music for most of 2012 and I am not disappointed. I hope you aren't either. Please comment on what you think of her. Caution: Parental Advisory. Thanks!

Today's machine thoughts will be centered on the basic concepts of digital storage in a computing device. My take on this is mostly semantics. If one has to use a very basic analogy than this would be it: A hard drive is like a bookshelf. If one has more gigabytes or terabytes, then one can store more "books." Memory is equivalent to what you can access at the moment - A piece of paper to the nearest magazine. Memory sizes can range from megabytes to gigabytes for most consumers in most devices. If you have any questions about this, please leave comments.

Digital storage basics, Part 1: Internal storage vs. memory
Kilobyte (KB or kB): By general definition, one kilobyte is 1,024 bytes. Megabyte (MB): By general definition, 1 megabyte is 1,024,000 bytes. Similarly, it can also be understood as 1,000,000 bytes. Gigabyte (GB): By general definition, 1 gigabyte is 1,000,000,000 bytes.
