Is it the Will iAm app?
 
2012-11-23 11:35:25 PM  
Or the apl.de.ap app?

Oh, it's will.i.am. FTFA: He's about to launch a new accessory and app for iPhone, under the monicker i.am+


Ok, that's enough, internet. I'm going to bed. :/

If I was marooned in the desert and I ran across Will IAM giving out bottled water, I'd tell him to fark himself. Something about that guy really bugs me and I'm willing to die of thirst to follow this somewhat irrational gut instinct.

Really? I would rather punch him in the stomach and face.

Good for a person with the resources trying to do something invovative. If this can get the attention of Canon/Sony/Nikon maybe it can go even further.

Well I don't think I'd have the strength left to do that. I would try. Then collapse and let out a raspy "g-g-g-goooo.......f-fark yourself.......................................*death rattle.

I guess I'm the first photog here, so I feel obligated to say that it doesn't matter how many megapixels the sensor is if the lens is shiat.

Isn't this the same guy who claimed he made his own car (that looks like a cross between a DeLorean and a bodykit from a Honda?)

You have missed the point. It doesn`t matter about the real quality, just what it looks like on a iPad...

Also, the cool factor with having a pop singers branding, like beats with Dr Dre. Anyone with any knowledge of how to get real quality avoids things like this like the plague.

Endorsed? fark off. The product should sell based on its ability to do the job, if you need a pop singer then you have failed at your primary purpose.

"The car, which made its debut on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, is being put into production as a way for Will.I.Am to bring some jobs back to East Los Angeles, California.

"I invested my money in building my own vehicle 'cause I want to bring jobs to the ghetto where I come from," he said.

We understand his motivation in trying to create some positive effect on his old stomping grounds and that on its own is very commendable, but as far as the IAMAUTO is concerned, well, the jury's still out on that.

Looking at it without any pretense, the car looks like an aftermarket mash-up of "curious" proportions. It's been built using OEM Chrysler parts and features a Beats by Dr. Dre sound system,"

His car has beats by Dr Dre? he wants to build it in ghettos?

I rest my case...

I just found out that it's actually a DeLoreaen worked over by those crafty MTV-stars at West Coast Customs, so not really a car that's going to be built by underprivileged people from the ghetto.
( Link ).

So I guess we can expect the same level of design and commitment to this camera, meaning he gets somebody to make a cheap gadget, then puts his name on it and claims he invented it, puts out a story about how this is going to support education and whatnot for kids, and sells another album.

My phone came with beats and beats headphones, that didn't factor into my purchase, and I'm glad because I honestly can't tell the difference between it and anything else. Well, no, not quite, when playing out of the speakers the quality is better than my previous phone, but that could easily be generational, I should try it vs a SGS3 I suppose. But through the headphones I don't see any real difference. I never said anything up to now because I just assumed I wasn't blessed with ears sophisticated enough to detect these things. Like those people who swear their gold audio cables result in a 3% improvement that is clearly noticable, for £2,300.

Is this like those Fatal1ty endorsements on over priced soundcards and NICs? Probably eh? I wonder when they realize this drives the value of products down, not up.

The `beats by dr dre` is only turned on if you plug in the `beats by dr dre` headphones. Plug in anything else and you get the same sound as anything else. AFAIK it doesn`t even turn on with beats speakers so the better quality sound you hear is just newer equipment, not `beats` and IIRC you have to go to the audio setting whilst the beats headphones are plugged in to get the option of turning it on.

I think that all new cameras should have blue-tooth or something similar built in, so they can sync with your phone for uploads, apps, or whatever not to mention remote devices like flashes. We have smartphones. Why the fark don't we have smart cameras?

Then again, they say that cameras are a dying breed now that everyone has a camera that fits in their pocket...

... then again.

/also, I didn't have much of an urge to punch Will.i.am in the stomach and face until today

watching that plastic surgery disaster prostitute her way through a lip sync is always good fun...
and her equally brain dead co-horts....
makes me hope for P Diddy doing Hamlet one day....

I get the feeling this guy often lets his showmanship and such get ahead of his brain, and lets himself be fed lines that make no sense. And, he's not smart enough to call BS on any of it. I don't mean that as a slam, he's a marketer and performer and is probably used to being given stuff and running with it. Thus he's easily manipulated into stuff.

That said, this isn't necessarily a terrible idea. Use a smartphone/app as the processor/electronics, put good R&D into the optics and design, and you can get the best of both worlds. Not to mention it'd be easy to update/change the software to add features. Sadly I have the feeling this is going to be another overpriced celebrity-endorsed mess.

I still don't know how I feel about this guy. When I first heard the black eyed peas (Link), I thought they were going to be great. Then, I didn't hear from them in a few years, the come back and they're the farking trainwreck they are today. 

Then, while I was watching the curiosity landing, will.i.am comes on NASAtv to talk about his love for robotics and the work he's done trying to bring better STEM education to underprivileged kids.

I just don't know...
 
2012-11-24 02:56:27 PM  
Fark you for getting my hopes up for an apl.de.ap solo project, submitter.

He farking carries that group and ALL YOU PEOPLE BETTER GODDAMN RECOGNIZE THAT.
 
2012-11-25 12:44:26 AM  
one never knows who has earned a degree in advanced engineering from M.I.T., do one? something tells me slappy mcsingsong ain't. see what i'm sayin? can you feel me?

i still like 'Let's Get Retarded'. it sums up the black eyed peas and most rap/hip hop/techno/dumpstep/gangsta music, dance, posturing and clothing. yo yo yo. bunch of morans.

Are there actually people in ghettos that want/need a job? I heard recently they're all living off Santa Clause.
