Vote for paperEdit

The U.S. elections are only a few days away, and it\'s becoming clear that in many corners of the country, electronic voting could prove to be a disaster. Veronica\'s out sick, but we found the moon tapes! I\'d rather have V. and the moon tapes.

From The PhonesEdit

  • Jeff from Detroit

I preordered two Shuffles, and I just received one of them. This thing is gorgeous. I'm a fan boy, but hey, who isn't? Molly.

  • Mark from Michigan

About Blockbuster Total Access. Got home last night and had a couple new movies from them and a message about Total Access. It will cause a little bit more of a delay. Expect an extra two business days for the next movie. If you go to the store and pick up a movie from your queue, it won't be removed from your queue.

  • Casey from Pensacola

You also get a free in-store rental. Kinda like two for one. And its ad critic.


  • New iTunes solves Mike's problems--Mike

The problems I was having with previous versions of iTunes 7 were related to the way it worked with my Shuffle. Mostly it was just giving me all kinds of stupid pop-ups, saying it couldn't find the device. These are now gone. It seems generally to behave much more nicely. I have no idea whether the problems people were having with certain podcasts were fixed, since I experienced no such issues, but I would venture that 7.0.2 is in a state where the tentative should now be able to take the plunge.

  • Ha, ha--Jeremy from Atlanta

I read this blog post yesterday and thought you would be amused. The title is "The Difference Between IE 7 and a Virus." If IE 7 is indeed pushed out forcefully as the writer fears, that does make IE 7 viruslike. Love the show.
