From AppleInsider via digg:
"Apple sold millions of dollars worth of hardware off the back of our content and made a lot of money," [NBC Universal chief executive Jeff Zucker] said. "They did not want to share in what they were making off the hardware or allow us to adjust pricing."So does that mean NBC gets a cut from every television sold? Because if they don't, and haven't for the past sixty years, that's totally unfair and they should sue for back damages.

Please don't disclose who I work for or last name, but I thought you would find this tidbit interesting.
I work with rolling out new technologies to remote field engineers, and this quote caught my eye from a Sprint corporate sales rep:
"Our announced next generation data service is WIMAX with service launching in select markets beginning late this year. The exact availability of Aircard type devices has not been released yet, but it has been communicated that USB aircards will probably be part of our product offering. At present I have not seen any indication we will progress to REV B."So no Rev B, but Wimax is coming!! Woohoo!
Love the show! Miss Veronica :(

In Romania a DSL provider give you a free laptop for 3 year contract of 6Mbps DSL with 40 euro monthly fee.
You also can get a desktop PC with a 3Mbps for 20 euro monthly fee. Who neads a free TV with cable when you can get a free PC with DSL?
Hey Tom & Molly,
In Episode 591, you talked about Vonage's financial and legal problems. As a former Vonage customer, all I can say is good!!!
In September, I tried to disconnect their service. Wow, what an experience. They must be desperate for money because they used every option available to keep my few paltry pesos.
- Charging a disconnect fee (I paid).
- Charging for some mythical rebate that I got from my equipment (I didn't pay, I think; the equipment was given to me).
- Paying an extra month because they weren't able to find in their meticulous call log notes from my three previous phone calls, anything about my request to disconnect my service. (Funny, they couldn?t tell me what the purpose of those calls, I guess I just called to say hi.)
- Claiming that there was no supervisor at the call center. (I asked them how they got paid, and who paid them.)
- Ignoring my saying "I want to disconnect now, I don?t need it, and don?t want it" and responding with "What if we gave you 2 months for free."
They show all the classic signs of a cash-strapped company trying to hold on.
