Al Tkatch of AHA MEDIA and Rockafellas shows off his old gadgets

July 12, 2009 Leave a comment

In this video, Al Tkatch of  AHA MEDIA and of his duo Rockafellas shows off his old gadgets that he still uses today for his music gigs!  He has an old Toshiba Satellite Laptop T2130CS ( from 13 years ago) using Dos 6.22 and an Ipod Mini 4gig ( from 4 years ago)

Despite having top of the line gear for his other personal and professional use, ( Al Tkatch is AHA MEDIA’s “tech guy”) – it’s interesting to see how the old technology is the one that Al uses for reliability for his music gigs.

“No viruses and it’s dependable!” – Al mentions
