[Bonza] Google Introduces Its Beaut New Australian Text-To-Speech Voice With A Synthesized Version Of 'I've Been Everywhere'

If you're an American and you've heard the tongue-twisting country music ballad "I've Been Everywhere," odds are that you've heard the most popular version from Johnny Cash, or perhaps the earlier version by the unequaled Hank Snow. There have been dozens of adaptations of the song, for everywhere from Texas to Singapore. But the original was written by Geoff Mack way back in 1959 and popularized by Lucky Starr, and the first set of lyrics was exclusively tailored to cities, towns, and regions in Australia. The song featured such multi-syllabic municipalities as Megalong, Tamborine, Woodenbong, and Grong Grong.

[Leak] Waze 4.0 Brings Complete UI Overhaul, Lots Of New Animations

Waze 4.0 is on the way to Android soon, and with it comes a complete overhaul of the entire app's interface. Everything, and I mean everything, has been touched by this update. The app is still clearly recognizable as Waze, but definitely a much slicker, more animated Waze. I wouldn't call it "material" by any means, but it's certainly a lot more modern than what Waze is shipping right now. Take a look at these two GIFs for examples of just what I mean - even the traffic flow animation is now snazzier. There's also this fun little loading bar any time you start a route that shows potential obstacles and traffic on your way.

Story-Driven Management Sim 'Punch Club' Hits The Play Store, Presumably Knocks It Out

What's the next best thing to fighting in a game? Managing the fighting, of course. Some might even say it's better that way as the experience can be deeper and more varied than a button-mashing fighter. Punch Club puts you in the role of a young boxer as you level up, participate in fights, and search for the man who killed your father.

Real-Time Mobile Comments Are Now Supported In Google Docs, Sheets, And Slides Across Both Android And iOS

Collaborative features are a big part of the draw to Google's online office suite. Part of this is the ability for multiple people to edit documents from two locations at once.

Whichever app you're using, you can communicate in real-time.

[Update: More Balls] After T-Mobile, Sprint Also Takes Exception To Verizon's Balls In A New TV Ad

Considering its reliance on many, many balls, Verizon's latest network comparison ad is fairly innocuous. It uses statistics from a Root Metrics study to boast about Verizon's wireless coverage and performance in relation to its competitors AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. The ad is obviously intended to make Verizon look good, and the combination of a condescending voice-over and an elaborate visualization are particularly disparaging to the cheaper, smaller networks.

New Samsung Pay Ad Features Comedian Hannibal Buress And Makes Light Of Apple Pay

Samsung and Apple take swipes at each other. The two companies are sort of like mobile carriers in that regard. It surprises precisely no one to see them bickering this many years after taking one another to court (something they're still doing, by the way).
