Yahoo's got a new chief, AT&T is spamming Idol fans and non-Idol fans alike, and the Storm Worm has been cracked. That's all big news, but the biggest news comes from me at the end of the show. Be sure to listen all the way through.

With the new year’s vacation and CES, you have missed some news items worthy of mentioning… I made a small list … very small … list would be bigger if the Internet wasn’t down most of the last few weeks :)

Have a nice, 3 day week :)

Molly,

In previous shows you talked about how all of the wires from wall mounted TVs and home theater components would negate the benefit of wall-mounting them. Check out this Switched.com article about flat HDMI cables that you can put on the wall and paint over. I think flat paintable speaker cables have been around for a decade or so. Now all we need are flat power cables that can carry more than 1kW of power and we’ll be set.

Like the show,

Hey Guys-

My friend, who livecasts his life, but does NOT torrent/etc is getting shut off by Comcast, and has no other way to get Internet other than 1.5/256 att DSL. Comcast is effectively disconnecting him from the net… So it WILL hurt people who don’t just torrent…

to my dearest buzz crew,

HOLLARRRRRRR!

As i was strolling the interwebz i came across this little article via ap. It basically states you live on an island and blog each week about your experiences. i thought to myself as i sip my coffee & baileys out of my cnet mug “hot damn this is the job for me”, but i quickly realized who really wants to sit back on the white sands in the warm sun sipping your fruity cocktail right outside of your own private villia blogging away? yep i do too!

Cordially,
phatemokid

p.s. get those applications in before the deadline feb 22

Additional NotesEdit

  • Molly announces her departure from BOL as a full-time cohost.
