1375 - Happy Holidays, rights-holders! Thanks for ruining everything!
Tuesday, December 21, 2010

On today's show, our cogent analysis of the FCC's Net neutrality regulation adoption (actually, I mean that), with surprisingly little argument. Also, the PlayStation phone and the Nintendo 3DS are planning to spoil our CES parade by announcing their cool gadgets after the big show. And Apple proves that it is Wiki-weak. Plus, our holiday thank you cards go out to those Scrooge-like rights-holders who keep shows off Google TV, Hulu Plus and Netflix off cable-supplied TiVo DVRs, and Google Maps off our Verizon phones. Seriously. Thanks for that. Xoxo. --Molly

Javier: Isn’t there a way around the Google TV blockade?


Molly & Buzz Out Loud Crew:

I live in North Dakota, near Fargo, and we are getting AT&T 3G service soon. As part of the Verizon/Alltel merger, Alltel was divested to AT&T state wide. The local Alltel stores are currently or have just been converted to AT&T stores. There have been iPhone displays around too, including Walmart. The switch is supposed to happen in January, but I have some friends who have received letters saying that they will switch in March. Anyways though, I would never even think of switching to AT&T, because my Droid 2 Global gets 2.2Mbps on Verizon, who seems to be EVERYWHERE!

Anyways, love the show,

Have you every heard of “Operation Match”? In 1965 some Harvard students had the idea of letting a computer arrange compatible dates. Questionnaires were spread among students, the answers punched on IBM cards and run through an Avco 1790 mainframe computer and the resulting names of “”compatible”" individuals sent to the clients.

This system soon spread to various European countries and in sometime in the late ’60s my mother was waiting at a train station in the Netherlands for a man that had been selected for her by a computer. This all worked out very well; in 1972 they married and two years later I was born.

So I guess it’s safe to say that I’m among the first generation of people born out of computer(-facilitated) love.
