Warning: today's show is slightly shorter than usual, thanks to our live coverage of Google's Honeycomb, Android Market, and Lady Killer event. But it's worth it: we break down the big announcements from Google, talk about the launch of The Daily, Egypt's restoration of Internet service, and the TSA planning to show slightly less junk than before. Thanks, guys. --Molly

In case you didn’t notice, we here in the Midwest got a few snow flurries yesterday. Of the many things that closed here in Tulsa, the local paper the Tulsa World was unable to print their Wednesday edition. However, they have have made their “”e-edition”" (which is different from their website) available for free. You know what? It’s pretty awesome. I’m even able to view it on my Android phone without any additional software. Check it out: http://tulsaworld.com/wednesdaypaper

Hi guys, down here in New Zealand, UBB is the norm. I’m not aware of any ISP offering an unlimited plan…. Oh wait, one does and it’s dialup.
While the obvious effect of UBB is people not consuming media online, it also affects other internet services. That means no useful tools like Mozy or Carbonite.
Our local satellite tv company have started offering tv on demand over the Internet. But my ISP (the largest in nz) isn’t a partner so any viewing will come off my allowance.
Having been under a UBB cloud forever, I can tell you that it WILL slow down progress of online services.
Prepare to backslide Canada!
After a mini-riot on the internet streets (internet super highway) of Canada the “”minority”" Government is reviewing the CRTC ruling.
That is the Canadian short political hand for saying we are going to overturn this because we want to get re-elected and we are a minority government so we need to make people happy but at the same time we don’t want to make it sound like we just give in to easy.
