This is kind of cool: some researchers from Universities of Tokyo and Hawaii have strapped what is essentially a GoPro with a rubber band to a shark’s fin to study how they swim.

I hope there’s more than this short video of footage, and if they ever manage to get one of these on a great white to get some seal snagging breaching in first person, that’d be amazing.

New features include new instruments and effects, Drummer which will play back different drum loops to your recording in different styles, Flex Pitch provides pitch editing for your recording and Logic Remote allowing you to control Logic Pro from your iPad.

Logic Pro will be available in the Mac App Store for $199 and the iPad app will be available for free.

Not only do they point out some key selling points for Windows 8, but they use Apple’s own product, Siri, to make fun of itself.  Continue reading “Way to go Microsoft.
