I am listening to yesterdays podcast (1279) and realized I had read an article about the “”Keyholders to the Internet”" in which it names of the Canadian holding one of the keys. This article was in the Toronto Star http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/article/841315–the-canadian-who-holds-the-key-to-the-internet was published yesterday morning and clearly id’s the person including the picture and city where he lives. Not only are we trusting these 7 people with this info we are telling the world who these people are and where to find them. Scary!!!
Love the show.

Hey Buzz Crew,
I was a little behind, but I just finished listening to episodes 1278 and 1279. When you were discussing Apple’s new trackpad for desktop, you forgot one interesting aspect: it should would great as a HTPC control system.
Think about it. You already had a small wireless keyboard that could fit nicely with a home theater system. However, a mouse doesn’t really work in the couch environment. With the trackpad and the multi-touch gestures you now have much-improve operation of a HTPC from the couch.
Combine both the wireless keyboard and trackpad with a Mac Mini, as an example, and now you have a adequate control and navigation options for the 10-foot experience.
Love the show,
