Song Tapper

1

Song Tapper is a site that allows you to tap the melody & lyrics of a song via the spacebar, and it will return what it thinks is the song you tapped in.

I’ve tried it out with a few songs, so far, its 0 for 3, and it keeps giving me Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody for them, even though as far as i could tell, i wasnt tapping that, i know that song.

Anyway, its a weird concept, needs some work, but is a great game to test your taping ablilities and a computer’s ability to put that to a song from a database.

Amazon aPod?

1

Amazon, most famous for shipping books and CDs in the post, has started to look prehistoric as the iPod generation downloads music in seconds from Apple’s all-conquering online music store.

But the company is hatching a plan to topple Apple’s iTunes, with the launch of its own downloading service and, most intriguing of all, a possible rival to the iPod. Geeks are already calling it the “aPod”.

just what the world needs, another mp3 player, and download service, no doubt it will be incompatable with other services/devices namely the iPod, and iTunes Music Store.

When will the companies realize that it is futile to take on the awesome power that is Steve Jobs and the amazing combination of the iPod and iTunes Music Store?

Nintendo DS gets new things:

0

Nintendo has announced plans for two new applications that will take the DS even further beyond the gaming realm. At a press conference held in Tokyo today, the company unveiled a web browser and a television tuner for the system.

The application, which is based off Opera mobile browser software, uses the bottom screen to display pages in their full and the top screen to show close ups of content. Users can also use the two screens as one tall vertical window. The touch pen is used for inputting characters, with ATOK Japanese recognition software built in.

Thats pretty cool, I hope they bring it to the US, currently both are Japan only.

Hobo Power

0

Hobo Power is a unit coined by Adam Carolla and Dr. Drew on the radio show Loveline as a measure of how bad something smells. As reference points, 0HP doesn’t smell bad at all, 50HP is the point at which somebody smelling would throw up, and 100 HP, while purely theoretical, would cause death by asphyxiation. A running bit on the show involved callers telling stories of foul-smelling situations, and the hosts would determine the equivalent Hobo Power.

xbox 360 file system hacked

0

The XBox 360 filesystem has been cracked wide open and you can now move saved games to and from your 360 using a piece of software called xplorer360, a SATA cable, and/or a hacked USB cable. The program allows you to browse the entire 360 and even lets you drag files from your original XBox over to the 360, which, as we know, used to be impossible.

it was only a matter of time until that happened
