Synapse

I discovered Synapse today thanks to a reference over at Slashdot. It looks like a pretty sweet mp3 player and much more interesting than WinAmp 3 (all those windows annoy me) because of its built in Brain and unique interface.

The Brain is the central intelligence of Synapse. When you use Synapse, it learns. When you play songs, it learns. It learns what you like and it knows exactly how likely — to the hundredth of a percent — you are to play those songs. It learns your style from you. There is no master database anywhere telling it to play two rock songs one after other. It knows to do that because you did it. And if you never played two rocks songs together, it wouldn’t either, which alone beats any other product available today.
