Thanks, Megan, but come on… You’re still talking about a pretty worthless invention attached to a $500 price tag. I’m sorry, this Beamz is offensive to me, both as an American and a musician. Can you believe that someone is trying to market this thing for such a price when we’re in the middle of a recession (if not a full blown depression)? Secondly, maybe not everyone is meant to be a musician. Ever think of that? This doesn’t even make anyone a musician. Can you actually WRITE a song on it? I guess so, if the process of songwriting can be reduced to triggering some cheesy MIDI presets.

UPDATE: The beamz now sells for $499.95 as is available for purchase through the company Web site: You can download new songs from there as well.
