Microsoft's Songsmith

Microsoft's Songsmith is real, and it's being marketed as a tool for "novices and experienced songwriters." But you'd never know it from this video (also real).

Note that the child in the opening scene is using a Macbook Pro. A sticker covers the Apple logo.

My favorite moment: "Microsoft, huh? So it's pretty easy to use?"

[Update: The link above is now a dud, as Microsoft has removed this video (titled "Everyone Has a Song Inside") from Songsmith's front page. You can still find the video on this Microsoft page, with other Songsmith videos and audio clips. Or watch here, on YouTube.]
