A Real Jurrasic Park? …. and Google phones

November 7, 2008

Not quite. But scientists in Japan at the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology have apparently made a major breakthrough in cloning technology by cloning mice that have been frozen for 16 years. They say that with this technology it may be possible to resurrect extinct species such as wooly mammoths. WOW….. They can’t bring back dinosaurs, however, because there aren’t any dinosaur tissue specimens in existence that still contain viable DNA. Link: The Daily Galaxy

Apparently you can now turn your iPhone into a four track recorder. The app lets you record and mix four tracks using the iPhone’s built-in mic. I’d say the fact that it uses the mic would prevent you from being about to make a good quality recording, but still, this is amazing. My friend/bandmate Seth just got a new google phone. It’s called the G1 and apparently it’s only available through T-Mobile at the moment. It’s actually only the software that comes from Google- it’s called Android- the phone itself is made by T-Mobile. I only got to see it for a second last night, but it looked pretty amazing. It uses 3G or WiFi for internet, and you can open gmail easily and even gchat on it. I’ll have to check it out further, but it looks like the iPhone may have a legitimate competitor. I have Verizon, and an LG Voyager which I really like, but damn, why hasn’t Verizon “taken it to the next level” with a device that can compete with the iPhone and Google phone? I really don’t know enough about this deal, but let’s hope there’s no exculsivity contract between Google and T-Mobile to use Android on only their phones. I would like to see Android showing up on a Verizon phone soon.
