The electric pick: More guitar mutilation

Soon there will be nothing left.


Decisions, decisions. As the rivalry between Guitar Hero III and Rock Band continues to heat up, would-be Springsteens everywhere are probably losing sleep over whether to go with a fake Gibson or Fender. But those guitars ordinaire just aren't special enough for some people.

True individualists might, for example, want something like the "Rock Tamashii," which is apparently the latest in a growing trend of guitar parts that are taking the place of full instruments. Technabob accurately describes it as an "oversize guitar pick with a built-in speaker" that plays as you, er, strum it to such classics as "Satisfaction."

Which raises the question: If one were to use one of these and an "Air Guitar Pro" neck at the same time, would the result be spontaneous combustion? Or perhaps a door to a parallel universe? In our opinion, either version--or none at all--still wouldn't be as disturbing as the air guitar T-shirt.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
