When backed into a corner, the FCC acts less like a bear and more like a kitten ... which is probably a good thing for the Internet overall. Facebook takes another lump, the HTC Evo shows up for pre-order at The Shack at all places, and Google Chrome is faster than a potato. Well, French fries, to be really accurate.

Matt from Baltimore: discovery!
On yesterday’s show, a few of you were bothered by Ellen’s response to the suspected Apple complaint. I think you missed the great big pink nuance in the room. In her response that you seemed to take as capitulation, she replayed the video that they were complaining about…on national television. I can’t imagine Apple being terribly happy with that. To me, it looks like she raised her middle finger while smiling lovingly at them. 3 Cheers for Ellen. LTS
