From the Google blog:
"Phonetic Arts’ team of researchers and engineers work at the cutting edge of speech synthesis, delivering technology that generates natural computer speech from small samples of recorded voice"

I guess that means my computer can be trained to synthesize speech in my own voice, or the voice of a friend, or in the voice of George Bush or Darth Vader. Freaky!
