The Russians have canceled their space tourism program, because space is too serious to monetize. Also, Skype offers unlimited long-distance on...phones. VoIP is so dead. You heard it here first. In other news, Microsoft bonanza: Windows predictions, welcoming ethical hackers, and burning down your house.

Exactly how does Microsoft count their OSes?Edit

Hi guys!

All this “Windows 7″ talk got me thinking: how was the number 7 arrived at? If Vista is “6″, then XP would be “5″. But wouldn’t that mean that 95, 98, ME, and 2000 were all “4″ since before 95 there was 3.1? Right? Or is it just that Bill Gates, like George Costanza, is a big Mickey Mantle fan? I’m confused so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

P.S. I’ve been listening since around November 2006, through all the downs and ups, and I can say that I truly do love your show. You guys really do need a big ol’ Webby Award. Is there a “For Your Consideration” campaign we can start for next year?


Old episodesEdit

I just noticed that you changed your XML feed. Now I see that many of the older shows on the list, including all of those older than episode 586 (the first episode I listened to, we hate flash drives) are no longer available for regular download. Where can I find an archive of past shows?

Cablevision lies to customers to get them to switch to digital serviceEdit

Hey Buzz Crew,

Thought this would be worth a molly rant …

Cablevision has decided to send notice out to customers about them moving channels off of analog and moving them to digital and not informing the customer service so...they make random facts up from what they have heard is happening.
