Page 2 - Can Neil Young's Pono Player Really Rival The iPod?
Of course Young isn't the first musician to make a foray into technology. Dr Dre has been very successful with his ‘Beats’ brand. Originally starting as headphones, they brand has gone onto include other audio equipment. 'Beats' have also just launched their own subscription-based online music service known as 'Beats Music' in January, which looks to take on Spotify and Google play music.
Neil Young, he's got a 'Heart of Gold' and a new Pono player
So is Neil Young the new Dr Dre? There’s a question we never thought we’d ask.
