Watch Dan Castellaneta chat about the inspiration behind some of his voices on The Simpsons.Watch Dan Castellaneta chat about the inspiration behind some of his voices on The Simpsons.

This is an interesting / fun video for anybody who happens to be a fan of The Simpsons. Dan Castelleneta does an alarmingly high number of voices on the show (somewhere in the neighborhood of 12-15 characters). Fun fact, you'll usually see a random Simpsons quote (less random now with the new design) in the header of GLM. Guess the episode, win a cookie.

A fun post with some interesting reveals that you may not have known about before (for instance, the voice of Shredder in the TMNT series). For those interested in my thumbnail choice, there is a slew of Dr. Katz videos up on YouTube.

Fifty of the worst video game voice acting moments that you've ever heard.Fifty of the worst video game voice acting moments that you've ever heard.

The entire video is worth watching just to get to the number three moment on the list (Mega Man 8). Dr. Light sounds a tad inebriated ('foiynd dat meat-e-oy'). Wow.

Google pulls the curtain back on GPS system for Android 2.0 devices.Google pulls the curtain back on GPS system for Android 2.0 devices.

This bit of Google software might be just the reason why Apple decided to recently acquire their own little map company. Also, this can't be good news for the folks over at TomTom.

AT&T decides to allow VoIP on the iPhone 3G.AT&T decides to allow VoIP on the iPhone 3G.

The general thought has been that AT&T didn’t want always-available VoIP because it would eat into its core business as a telephone company. The well known 3G congestion on AT&T’s network has also been suspected. This has all been upturned, for voice communications at least.

Google isn't going to be your wireless carrier just yet; you'll still have to have some sort of account with a carrier to deliver your calls, texts, and e-mails.
