With iPad SDK Beta 3 released yesterday, it hasn’t taken long for enterprising developers to dig into Apple’s private frameworks and extracting a number of interesting nuggets related to a camera the device doesn’t even have.
Don’t call it a port--Street Fighter 4 for iPhone and iPod touch is an
entirely new game with the same look and feel of the console games and
classic arcade cabinets. What’s different, of course, is the way you

Joe Biden breaking into hyper-melody. The health care debate set to a

Auto-Tune is a
pitch-correcting technology appearing with increasing frequency in

vaguely robotic. The Gregorys take the “Auto-Tune the heck out of
everything” gimmick to a new level by creating Auto-Tuned songs from
the voices of politicians and wonks in news footage and even C-SPAN.
