hyperscore HyperScore is a free user friendly cell phone ringtone composing software released by MIT media Labs for windows. To create a ringtone, all you need is some basic insticts and a few seconds. The file is small (5.6 mb), with support to lot of instruments. The menu plays a preview of the instrument that you are choosing, to help the musically challenged people. The whole environment is friendly, with color pencils to slash the charts and in the process listen to your creation. A bubble pops out everytime you pause you mouse pointer on a element on the screen, with information about it. Many smaples have been provided to give you a feel of the software.

Hyperscore lets composers assemble music using blocks of melodic or rhythmic riffs, called “motives.” A songwriter assembles a collection of motives, represented as a palate of colors. Then, in the program’s sketch window, the composer literally paints the rhythms across the screen. Moving the brush up or down changes the pitch and user-selected harmonizing levels smooth out the sour notes and chords that emerge in the process.

What makes it an ultimate tool for ringtone creation, is its ability to share in 3 modes. You can upload it to our community, send it to a friend, or put it on your phone! See the “Share” menu in Hyperscore, or try the three buttons in the bottom right hand corner of the Hyperscore application. You get special benefits from uploading songs to our community – free ring tones, fame, glory, and more.

    Opera Mini available for Blackberry and Palm Treo

    opera miniOpera Mini, the free web browser for mobile phones, is now available for BlackBerry and Palm Treo smartphones. Opera Mini is a user friendly superior mobile browser.

    Opera Mini™ is a fast and easy alternative to Opera’s mobile browser, allowing users to access the Web on mobile phones that would normally be incapable of running a Web browser. This includes the vast majority of today’s WAP-enabled phones.

    The new version further improves the browsing experience by enabling download of images, MP3s, etc directly to your phone.

    Opera Mini uses a remote server to pre-process Web pages before sending them to your phone. Web content is optimized for your device, ensuring fast browsing and a great user experience.

    Opera Mini offers the same speed and usability as the renowned Opera mobile browser, and uses Opera™ Small Screen Rendering™ technology to provide access to the Web. It has all the features expected of a browser, and more, such as content download, skinning, bookmarks, browsing history. In addition, Opera Mini recognizes your phone and optimizes Web pages accordingly to provide faster browsing.

    There are three ways to get the browser: 1) Point your phone’s current browser to http://mini.opera.com; 2) Send an SMS with the word OPERA to 96077 (SMS charges will apply); 3) Visit the Opera site and use the download wizard.

    Update: It seems like once you install it into your Treo, there is a problem. When you attempt to open it, you receive the message “Please ensure that IBM’s WebSphere Micro Environment Java VM is installed.” The program would not open.
    This is what you have to do: On the Treo 650, you’ll need Micro Environment Java VM. You can get it here: http://www.palm.com/us/support/jvm/
