The coolest software EVER!!!

THE greatest software this guitar player has ever come across is a wonderful package called "Transcribe! ". This joyous bundle of code allows you to import a sound file of a song you are trying to learn. Once imported, you can slow it down to less than half speed. The best part: you don't alter the pitch at all! You can also maintain the tempo but raise the pitch in semitones. Even cooler, with a click and a drag of your mouse across the file, you can highlight any piece and endlessly loop it until you figure it out. For the record, I am no company shill.

8 Great Sites for Freebies: Why Pay When You Can Get It Free?

Even if I have to opt in and click a confirmation email, if it’s free and I can use it, I’ll swap an email address for something free anytime. Everyday I spend a lot of time scouring the web for free stuff – whether it’s downloads, software or any stuff that actually shows up in my mailbox, so rest assured you can give the following 8 sites a shot and you will get some nice little legitimate free samples everyday. 1. About.com: Freebies This site is one of my bookmarked sites.

It’s never been so easy to get something for nothing and, I’m telling you, this one site alone will save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars a year. 2. My Savings is another œstuff for free site I visit often. In some cases, you simply download the coupon and redeem it on your next trip to the market. And that was just today. 3. Score Even Better Deals at Target By Knowing The Schedule for Markdowns. Search for Misspelled Items on eBay to Score Great Deals.

Typojoe.com is another good ebay misspelling search site to try. Anyway, as far as buying/saving on eBay goes, a couple more ideas: If you have a question about an item, go to another of the seller's listings and ask the question from there. This will add a bit of work for the seller, if they want to add your question and their answer to the item description page. Maybe other interested buyers will not bother to ask a question, instead just continuing to look for a similar item that already has the question answered in the item description. If you see an item that you want listed in auction format, send the seller a message asking if they will accept $x to end the auction early and sell the item to you.

Unleash Your Headphones' Full Potential with a USB DAC and Amplifier. For many people, using the right headphones will make a bigger difference.

Unleash Your Headphones' Full Potential with a USB DAC and Amplifier

I'm still using a pair of inexpensive (for the time — $100) 20-25-year-old Sony MDR V7's (I think it's the V7 as opposed to the V6 — it's at work, and I'm currently at home). This is a closed, over-the-ear headphone. The low-end-bass, crispness, and dynamic range are amazing (yes, I know that the frequency response isn't flat, but I like the colored sound of the Sony).

With the right sound source, I can hear faint whispery echoes and (at other times) clean pounding bass. I've tried the Sennheiser HD 280 pro that a lot of people really like, and I really hate it. If I was looking for a new pair of headphones, I'd look at the Sony MDR7506 or, if you have the money, the MDR-7509HD. Oh absolutely—this should come after finding the perfect pair of headphones.

The video is a commercial by DOCOMO for the Touch Wood SH-08C, a limited edition phone of which there are only 15,000 being made. But honestly I could care less about the phone, this commercial is a thousand times more cool. By combining lord knows how many pieces of wood, they were able to make a long, downhill track that was able to reproduce Bach’s Cantata 147, Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.
