Frets On Fire… And Why I Love It

I have a new addiction, and I am not ashamed to admit it. I pretend that I am a rock star for hours on end everyday. I don’t play in a band. I don’t own a guitar, well, I do have a bass, but that is a different story. I sit in front of my computer, and watch swirling notes pan in front of me to the tune of great metal songs of the eighties. What an addicting game.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with it, Frets on Fire is a clone of the ever popular PS2 game, Guitar Hero. The difference here is that you are using your keyboard, and there is no multiplayer. Aside from that, expect the same licks that you are used to with GH2.

So, Where Is Google Sky?

I was just reading over on the Google Blog, and something stuck out to me… With all the talk of new products, updates, there is still something missing… Google Sky.

One of my favorite open source projects has been Stellarium. It can simply be called Google Earth looking at the stars. If Google where to take this open source code, and give it the Google tweak, i.e. publicity, a few more engineers, and a little more, What a great app it would become.

What do you think?
