We're quite thankful to Texas Instruments
calculators for getting us through more than a few difficult tests (sometimes dishonestly, we must admit), so it's
great to see that a whole community of developers has sprung up to provide kids today with even more anti-academic uses
for their graphing calcs. Besides whiling away boring Calculus and Physics classes with grainy movies and
painstakingly-detailed recreations of such classics as Wolfenstein
, Tetris and
Super Mario Brothers, disinterested students can now actually listen to music from their trusty TI's, thanks to James
Montelongo's Real Sound 1.0. Montelongo rather unfortunately chose an almost-unlistenable Green Day song to demo his
work in the linked video, put it definitely gives you a sense of the 32 kHz sound quality possible with the program.
America thanks you, James, for making No Child Left Behind just that much harder to achieve.
