Men As An Excuse For God

I think god invented porn before he came up with men and then made us so he could blame it on some­one else to the wife.

—John’s the­ory, as we were throw­ing around ideas for a cam­era phone that does 360 panora­mas, so that callers could get con­text on who they’re calling

Naturally, this brain­storm ses­sion turned to pornog­ra­phy, as it has dri­ven such tech­nol­ogy in the past; the lack of pornog­ra­phy on Sony’s Betamax was one of the con­tribut­ing fac­tors that helped JVC’s VHS win the for­mat war, dri­ving Betamax into extinc­tion. And more recently, Sony, hav­ing learned from their mis­takes, won the cur­rent gen­er­a­tion DVD for­mat war with Blu-Ray against Microsoft’s HD-DVD, as movie stu­dio back­ing, pornog­ra­phy, and games are undoubt­edly dri­ving this too.

Melodica

A demon­stra­tion of the Melodica app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. There are sim­i­lar apps out there — Tonepad, Synthtopia — but none of them are as sim­ple and pol­ished. That being said, there are a few fea­tures that could make Melodica stand out even more, such as the abil­ity to save com­po­si­tions on-the-fly and layer them under new ones, or the abil­ity to change the sam­ple sound, so I’m hop­ing they’ll be added in an update. Regardless, I’ve only had this app for a day, and I’ve been enjoy­ing it immensely.

Some tips for composing/performing songs in Melodica:
