We have launched a new business called BabyVirtuoso which is dedicated to early musical and brain development for babies!

Baby Virtuoso’s first product is a CD that teaches babies from 2 to 24 months the musical building blocks they need for future musical fluency. This one-of-a-kind CD uses fun, harmonic hearing exercises to stimulate neural pathways involved in music processing --- just like talking to your baby stimulates the brain’s language centers.

Download FalseAlarm for your Palm Pilot. It’s free! No more setting your clock ahead ten minutes: FalseAlarm creates a random alarm clock for your Palm Pilot. The random alarm clock functions like a normal alarm clock except the alarm sounds ahead by a random amount of time. For instance, if the alarm is programmed to go off at 7:00am it may actually go off at 6:54am. The clock, however, will display 7:00am. Thus, you’ll see that it is time to get up even though you may have some extra time to do so.

Although you know there is a random offset and that you may have extra time, you don't know how much. Thus, you cannot compensate for the offset by sleeping in for the extra amount of time. You'll be surprised how effective the FalseAlarm is!
