Netflix reportedly will pay about $100 million to stream every episode of Mad Men: chump change, if predictions of an $800 million streaming TV market turn out to be true. Also, it seems that everyone wants to get in on the tablet market, but given reported XOOM sales of only about 100,000, it's possible the only tablet market there is is for iPads. Plus, AT&T iPhones and their dropped calls, and Obama goes to Facebook. -- Molly

I also immediately checked the date on the Commodore 64 announcement, since I was suspicious of it being an April Fools’ joke. So imagine my surprise when I found a Commodore 64 ad insert in the new Tron: Legacy Blu-ray disk packaging yesterday. I’ll give them this: if it is a prank, nice follow-through.
Hey Buzz Crew,
On yesterday’s show, Molly was discussing her gadget addiction. I just want to let you know that you are far from alone. Let me tell you about my setup any given night:
There’s my Vizio HDTV which can be found plugged into my PS3 and Wii (with the required dust) and my ASUS nettop. The nettop will be controlled either by my wireless keyboard and mouse OR my rooted Nook Color (using RemoteDroid).
Next to me, you’ll see 2 laptops:
My Google CR-48 for Facebook and Twitter and a little light browsing My more powerful HP laptop for media playing and downloading
And of course there’s the trusted BlackBerry Tour and HTC EVO (gotta keep work and personal life seperate). And those phones are subject to change every few months.
The only thing I’m missing is the Sony Dash, but only because you said it sucked. I almost bought it.
Love the show,
