    EyeSpeak, device for ALS, Kickstarter (Jason Becker content)

    This looks very promising. I never got to meet my great grandfather, only a few months before I came into the world, due to ALS. Those that suffer from the illness would greatly benefit from something like this. Once you lose your ability to communicate, your quality of life can go way down...

    College amp Suggestions??

    New, "Low-End" Imac?

    Glad they decided to make a lower tier, but 1100$ sounds a bit steep, especially for a 1.4Ghz Dual-core. I mean, I could easily make a i7 for that. Let the discussion begin!

    Addictive Drums 2 thread!

    Don't think there is a thread for this yet... Hope I got it in the right section. Sounds exciting? Wonder if they are trying to steal the hubbub surrounding EZD2? Addictive Drums 2 I wonder what kind of features they will be adding?

    Jason Becker is sad.

    From his FaceBook page. It might be nice to leave a comment or message for him to try to help cheer him up and support him. He has his own forum which he reads.
