Neil Young already had a go at changing the music world, but now it’s Peter Gabriel’s turn to mix up the scene. The acclaimed artist has introduced a new app known as MusicTiles, which allows users to create and share remixes of their favorite tunes with a simple tile interface. Each tile represents a basic element of the song — be it a guitar track, drums or vocals — which can then be blended together with other elements. Users can then manipulate the effects and timing of the individual components by placing them in different arrangements. MusicTiles costs $ 2.99 and is available today for the iPad and iPhone. Once the app is downloaded, users can then make in-app purchases of songs and albums.
The app’s creators suggest that any professionally produced song can be transformed into the MusicTiles format. Artists need only to submit the master stems of their work. You’ll find a demo of the app after the break, which reveals some of the remix possibilities for Peter Gabriel’s hit “Sledgehammer”. This is the new stuff, indeed.

We have actually seen a couple of TVs with thin bezels in our time– some budget friendly, some not so much– but they usually offer at rates that have many of us turning to less than stylish displays. If Hisense has its means, the lines between higher style and lower spending plan will blur with the unveiling of its T770 series. The 42 – and 52-inch sets in the array both have extra-narrow 7mm bezels yet cost an entirely affordable $ 800 and $ 1,200 respectively, according to a representative. For the money outlay, the 2 TVs share the common foundation of a 1080p LCD with edge LED lighting, active shutter 3D and 120Hz refresh prices. They additionally share a quartet of HDMI ports, WiFi and the apparently obligatory neighborhood media support through DLNA sharing and USB. Although Hisense might not entice some customers away from larger or simply much more sophisticated screens once the T770 is in shops sometime in the undefined near future, it may have given us a friendly reminder that fascinating design and sane prices do not have to be mutually exclusive.

Swedish start-up Memoto today revealed the availability of its self-titled crown jewel product, a very small camera you clip to your shirt that captures a 5MP photo every thirty seconds. Unlike GoPro, which has a tight hold on the mobile video taping market, Memoto looks for to bring uncomplicated capture of life’s less extreme moments to consumers.

Hey there, Kindle Fire owners — Amazon’s rolling out a brand new software update for you, and it packs quite a few worthwhile (and arguably overdue) tweaks for your budget-conscious tablet.
Take sharing, for example. Oddly absent from the Kindle Fire at launch was the ability to share interesting snippets of text like its e-ink brethren, but that functionality has been added, along with the ability to tap into Amazon’s people-powered Shelfari service for what the company calls Book Extras — extra related information pertaining to the book a reader is poring through.
Amazon is also positioning the Kindle Fire as more of educational device than before with support for print replica textbooks, though I’m hoping against hope they eventually work up something like Apple’s more hand-on approach. Be warned though students — speaking as someone who tried in vain to give up textbooks in exchange for their e-book editions for a semester, you’d best be prepared for a bit of learning curve. If nothing else, the update makes it easier for owners to skim through long articles online, as Amazon has also added a special reading view for their Silk browser that that strips out all the cruft in favor of a less-is-more reading experience.
Also included are a handful of miscellaneous fixes that range from the minor (WiFi reconnects faster after the Fire wakes up) to the thoughtful (the time limit on movie rentals now starts when it’s first played, not when it’s downloaded). Alright, it’s not the most mind-blowing update, but Fire owners probably won’t be looking this gift horse in the mouth.
Amazon has said that the update will be pushed to be devices over the coming days, but particularly anxious Fire owners can go ahead and take the plunge now. And for once, you don’t have to worry if you’re rocking a rooted Fire, as the folks on the XDA forums have already managed to score root access to the thing — you’ve gotta love that ol’ hacker spirit.
Sorry folks, this colorful Series 3 lappy from Sammy is for the fine citizens of Korea only, at least for the moment. The 350U weighs in at just under three pounds and 0.8-inches thick, while housing a Core i5, up to a 640GB HD, a 12.5-inch anti-reflective screen, and a battery large enough to keep it chugging along for over eight hours. Really, the big difference between this notebook and the same-sized Series 3 shipping here in the states are the color options. While Americans all get the same gun-metal gray, our friends across the pacific can pick black, silver or pink (you know, for the ladies). The 350U is priced starting at 1,090,000 won, just over $ 1,000. Check out the gallery below.

First off, this isn’t what you’re thinking: this scanner doesn’t actually allow you to scan objects in 3D but it allows you to scan physical objects. Think of it as a larger camera. That said, the HP TopShot scanner is clearly a bold move for the beleaguered HP. The $ 399 MFP prints, copies, and scans and has a special arm that swings up to scan 3D objects. For example, you could place a model on it and “scan” it (really “take a picture of it”) from different angles.
This is one of the first scanners I’ve seen with this feature set and if you’re an Etsy manufacturer or an eBay fiend, it might be a good way to grab shots of items without an expensive light box and lights. Otherwise, it’s just a bog standard multi-function printer that would look at home in anyone’s den or small office.
No availability yet but knowing HP it will probably be discontinued in 47 days [[optional sound effect].
If you fancy yourself a Stanford (wo)man, but lack the requisite dollars to actually attend, now’s your chance to collect those collegiate bragging rights. Starting October 10th, you can join Professor Sebastian Thrun and Google’s Director of Research, Peter Norvig, in a free, online version of the school’s Introduction to Artificial Intelligence course. The class covers, “knowledge representation, inference, machine learning, planning and game playing, information retrieval, and computer vision and robotics,” and ambitiously aims to be the largest online AI course ever taught. If you’re feeling the ole red and white, you can register at the source link below, but if you’re looking for the official Stanford stamp of approval, we’re afraid you’re barking up the wrong tree — non-students will receive a certificate of completion from the instructors only. Still interested? Check out the video introduction after the break and hit the source for more details.
Last week, the online grapevine foretold that T-Mobile users would have complimentary calling over WiFi. Now, the pink provider’s powers that be have made good on the gossip and officially made free WiFi calling official. The service is available to those with Android handsets with the carrier’s Smart Wi-Fi app preinstalled and are on T-Mo’s Even More or Even More Plus plans. All others wanting a dose of free will have to pony up for a new plan — you didn’t think it was actually free, did you?
