Adobe's new experiment turns tone deaf humming into real music

Mashable - 5 hours 27 min ago

What if your tone deaf humming could actually sound... pretty good? That's the premise of a new experiment from Adobe that aims to turn your voice into music.

It's called Project Kazoo, and it could one day make soundtrack creation as simple as humming a quick tune.

SEE ALSO: Adobe finally has a full version of Photoshop for the iPad

The software, which is still in a prototype phase, uses a technology called voice conversion to translate dissonant sounds into music. Hum a couple bars into a microphone, and the software can turn the sound into that of the well-tuned instrument of your choice. It can even convert music from instrument into the sound of another — play a few notes on a recorder and the software will spit out the same notes on a saxophone. Read more...

Google Pixel 3 XL teardown reveals Samsung screen, tons of glue

Mashable - 6 hours 22 min ago

Now that the Pixel 3 XL is out in the open, it was just a matter of time until someone disassembled it. 

The first to do so is the trusty iFixit, and while digging through the Pixel 3 XL's innards didn't result in any groundbreaking discoveries, there are still a few interesting changes compared to the last generation of Pixel phones.

Why Netflix's 'Hill House' finale changes the way we look at the show

Mashable - 7 hours 8 min ago

Warning: The following contains spoilers for the entirety of Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House, all 10 episodes. Proceed with caution.

It's safe to assume these days that a supernatural TV drama isn't going to end with us, the viewers, getting every answer or solving all the mysteries we faced over the season. So it was with Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House, which after 10 episodes of family secrets and unexpected zombie torsos, left us wondering what exactly we'd seen.

That's not to say that Hill House's ending wasn't satisfying, but it may feel that way at first. It's certainly a game-changer and doesn't explain half the specters haunting the Crains (and us!) all season, but it merits a second viewing to solidify the journey we just went on and what it all means.

Amazon's new Kindle Paperwhite shows e-readers can still get better

Mashable - 7 hours 27 min ago

There are very few gadgets in this world I consider to be perfect. But one of them, or at least one that comes pretty damn close, is my Amazon Kindle e-reader. I’ve been a huge fan since I bought my first Kindle (third-generation) back in 2007, and my admiration for these wonderfully simple machines only grew when I upgraded to the frontlit Kindle Voyage in 2014.

So when Amazon asked if I wanted to try the brand new Kindle Paperwhite —  available for pre-order today for $129.99 — I couldn't pass up the opportunity. And as it turns out, I was amazed during my short time messing around with it. Amazon, somehow, continues to refine a device that is already teetering on the brink of perfection. Read more...
