The premise of Microsoft's newly-released music making application is simple - you just sing into your PC's microphone and Songsmith analyzes your song's notes to create a background track. If you'd like to see all the ways you can use this power for evil, watch the video after the jump.
If I told you that we found this picture courtesy of Gizmodo, you'd probably look at it and call me a liar right to my face. I'm okay with that. What I'm not okay with, however, is this beautiful iPhone cake and its wasted potential. Look at those apps - the thing isn't even jailbroken! I suppose it's fitting though; a locked down phone for a newly-locked-down man.
The cake took 18 hours to make and was a gift to Bobby Casey from his new bride. Sure, it says Cingular on it, but that doesn't take away from its awesomeness one bit. It's almost too beautiful to eat, but unfortunately, the cake was eaten. At least they took pictures.
Bottom line: whoever made this thing has serious talent. In fact, I wonder if she'd make us a Palm Pre cake for launch... If you're out there, get in touch!
In a surprise career move, SlashGear co-founder Vincent Nguyen announced today that he would be leaving the technology blogging community and beginning a career in the adult industry.

Okay, I just saw something hilarious. Most people know by now that all analog TV signals will be switched over to digital ones come February 2009. And while all the commercials tout the process to be super easy, it may not be so for everyone.
Tired of waiting in the security lines at the airport? Tired of having your laptop scanned? Well now, you can do more than use a checkpoint-friendly bag. In fact, you can send a little message to the scanner operators!
Sometimes consumers complain about things that are just petty. But this time, I'm going to have to side with drivers traveling through Lancaster, CA that have to put up with a harmonic segment of road.
I think we've all encountered the dreaded Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) at one time or another, but never has it been so epic in both size and scale than at the opening ceremonies for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Have you guys ever seen the movie Can't Buy Me Love? It's been a really long time since I've seen that movie, but I seem to recall it was about some guy that mowed lawns and hires a popular girl to be his girlfriend for a month. That really doesn't seem to fit into the gaming world, however, that's the first thing that David Jaffe (of God of War fame) thought of when he heard Nintendo's comments about only “geeks and otaku” wanting extra storage on the Wii.
After spending several hours emerged in a video game, the real world can seem pretty boring without all of those cool weapons and power-ups. Every now and then I stop to wonder what the world would be like if we had some of those items. Apparently I'm not the only one.
