I usually don’t take pictures of strangers and post them online but…
Today at Target this lady was being dragged by her two sons into the toy aisle and since I was looking at Transformers I happened to see them go by. These boys were REALLY excited about something and I wasn’t sure what, so out of curiosity I peeked around the “boy’s aisle” and….
They were grabbing tons of different dolls and accessories and begging their mom for them and what she told them was priceless.
She didn’t say no because they were boys who wanted “girl’s toys”….she said, “You already have Ariel, don’t you want someone else?” And one of the boys just kept yelling how Ariel was his favorite.
Their mom was just so frustrated and exhausted like they must beg her for princess toys all the time and they probably have so many back at home and I’m sorry but that’s just adorable ;w;
That’s like this one time I was in the toy aisle at Wal-Mart and this lady and her son walked past me, and I heard her mumble something about Monster High dolls, and her son got really excited about them. So, they walked past this one doll and he made grabby hands at it and you know what his mom said? “That’s a knock-off toy, you want the real thing don’t you?”
And I just thought it was utterly priceless because it’s like, “good job, mom, no generic toys for your child.”
cant you just turn the camera around or put a blanket over it.
still a mic though
and theres the chance that it might say something like “error kinect camera cannot function when obscured”
Videogame consoles are not supposed to spy on you.
Videogame consoles are not supposed to potentially rat you out to the government.
Videogame consoles are not supposed to arbitrarily decide who sees what’s on the screen and what’s not.
I have never told anyone not to buy a videogame console, but in this case, knowing what I know about the Xbox One, I am seriously imploring people not to buy this machine. The console will not be consumer-friendly, and between the above and an always-on internet connection, how do you know your hobby isn’t siphoning personal information to…well, who knows who?
Suffice it to say, the Xbox 360 will be my last Microsoft console. I don’t care how many more Halo games get churned out.
Adding this here from my videogame blog because it’s too important, and the potential for Microsoft to spy on us, then report findings to the government if asked…yeah, no.
Spread the word!
If you haven’t read George Orwell’s “1984”, do so.
Tired of listening to robotic-like vocaloid voices?
CeVIO, a currently unknown company in the vocaloid community, has finally released their first speech synthesizer software: CeVIO Creative Studio FREE.
In it we find a very cute bishoujo named Satou Sasara, who can talk and, soon, also sing. Compared to most other vocaloids, Sasara has a very refreshing and human-like voice which is almost indiscernible from a normal voice.
Her program is very easy to use and is, for the time being, free to download. She’s the first of three characters to be released so hopefully we’ll be able to see more updates in the future.
Here’s a short demo on how to use her:
(Note: I’m currently having problems with typing hiragana when using her on both of my laptops so there might be some sort of glitch for computers with English as the main language. I’m going to contact CeVIO to see if they can fix it)
So what do you guys think about her? Is Sasara interesting enough, or will you stick with more popular vocaloids like Miku?
ok yeah she’s pretty cool but was the insult to Miku and other Vocaloids really necessary? They don’t all sound robotic, especially when used by someone who knows what they’re doing.
