Radio Shack as we mentioned yesterday is changing to The Shack. But a good restaurant in Connecticut is also called The Shack and has pie. Radio Shack does not have pie. They lose. We also talk about Google's dropping search share and the rumored new PS3.

Hate to be one of those “well actually” individuals but when Tom said that nobody used Pointcast I felt the need to geekely speak up as its only apologist (no doubt :-)


I was in tech college at the time point cast was around and didn’t have anything but really slow dialup at home. Getting a bunch of articles pushed to my laptop that I could then read at my own comfort when I got home was fantastic. I also really enjoyed the interface and the story ticker. Pointcast was Google reader before RSS and I still wish Google reader would get its own desktop news ticker of some sort.

Hello All,


When I heard of Radio Shack’s name change, I had to laugh, since there is a restaurant called the Shack here in Southeastern Connecticut. They serve great meals, and their motto is “Life is short, have pie.” Why would I go “The Shack” since I could go the other Shack to get pie?


Take care,

Keith
