How do You Fall Asleep?

We’ve been having a lot of fun today over on the Facebook fan page. One of the things I posted to the community was “The last thing I think about every night before I fall asleep is…” Some of the answers were hilarious… and some were downright creepy.

The answers did prove a theory I have, though. Too often we attempt to fall asleep while trying to think of things we need to do, things we want to do, and everything we’ll never get done. We don’t tend to actually relax when we get into bed. Instead, we let our minds run a million miles an hour, sometimes more so than they do during the day. We’re not getting enough quality sleep, and we all know there’s no rest for the wicked.

What do you think of when you crawl into bed? Do you make an effort to wipe your mind clean and allow yourself to doze off? Or are you like a large majority of other Geeks who lie in bed letting the horses in their brains run free?

Your computer won’t need a rest if you keep it updated with software from our download center.

What is the Name of That Song?

How often have you heard a new song and liked it, only to not find out the name of it at the end? It can drive you crazy trying to Google pieces of the lyrics, attempting to figure out who sings it, and what it’s called. You can’t buy the song for yourself if you don’t know the name of it. That’s where Midomi comes in. With Midomi, you can use your own voice to hum or sing lyrics to any song, and the service will find it for you. Once you’ve found it, you can watch the video for that particular piece of music, or even record a version of your own to share with the world.

Create a profile on Midomi, and sing your favorite songs. Upload them and create a playlist of searchable songs for others to enjoy. The next time anyone searches for that song, your performance might be the top result! You can listen to and rate others’ musical performances, see their pictures, send them messages, buy original music, and more.

There are more than two million legal tracks on Midomi. You can listen to samples of original recordings, buy the full studio versions directly from Midomi, and play them on your computer.
