BOL can now predict, based one early returns, Blu-Ray will win the high-definition format war. But tune in tomorrow, there's still a close race for second place! HD VMD could make a surprise showing! In other news, Scientology, for once, is the one under attack, and Qtrax ... well. Poor Qtrax.

I'm not one to peruse the news sites, and so I depend on Buzz Out Loud to keep me in the loop on tech related stuff that comes up during small talk around the office.
For the first time, I had to tell my friends and co-workers, that I had not heard of a story. Apparently, it, or a related story had been on USA Today, Wired, Time, NBC, SkyNews, NPR, FOXNews, the Drudge Report, The Register, Slashdot, and News.com, but nothing on BOL.
Sample conversation. Non-tech-savvy Coworker: What do you know about the hackers that attacked Scientology? Me: Hackers attacked Scientology? Non-tech-savvy Coworker: Yeah, it was on Kevin and Bean this morning. I thought you kept up on hacker news. Me: ...
So, I went to Digg, and found dozens of stories.
I depend on BOL to keep me away from places like digg!
- Molly? Where were you?

- Here's where the iPhones went
My name is Nick. I'm thai. I live in Bangkok.
With reference to no. of iPhone Apple sold and no. of iPhone registered with AT&T. I'm not surprise at all. Because most of my friends, my sister, my uncle and my girlfriend are using iPhone. I see iPhone everywhere i go in Bangkok.
There is one shopping center where there are many mobile phone shop (more that 200 mobile phone shop). 95% of those shop have iPhone on sell. They are selling iPhone locked at about USD575 and unlocked iPhone at about USD700.
I heard that AIS (Thai carrier) is talking with Apple to bring iPhone to Thailand officially. But I don't think it will work. As iPhones in US are subsidized by AT&T. Official iPhone would cost USD1,000 in Thailand.
I hope this information would be useful. Love the show. BOL helps me get through Bangkok traffic everyday.
