It's really hard too look boss when you're basically just polishing glass in front of crowd.

Record players were not created with the intent to "mix" but the idea evolved over time. Touch screens were created to be dynamic interfaces that could adapt to control or emulate anything. Maybe in the future kids will say in response to some kinnect type sensor interface "where's the glass?"

I do think it's been many years since this could have been considered to be cool in any way, but I think it was a little more recent than 1974.

We said the same things about CD players, when it first started to appear in clubs and now you will find them in most of them, turntables are soon be like dinosaurs...Its not what you use, its how you use it.
