BOL 1046: Talk to the wrist

LG announced that Orange in the U.K. will have the exclusive rights to sell the watch phone. But will anyone who isn't a d-bag want one? We discuss. We also get excited about RIM bringing full Flash to its phones. And Jason forgets how Tom's mind works.

Heys guys,

In episode 1044, you guys talked about the new PS3 slim. But for owners of the 1st and 2nd gen PS3, there is more reason to hold on to their chunkier PS3s. Even those looking to buy a new PS3, if you can, get the 1st or 2nd gen models. Here’s why:
The older models have 4, instead of just 2 USB ports. They even have SACD and built-in flash card readers, something the slim lacks. But most importantly they have either the Emotion Engine or Software Emulation to play PS2 discs, something new PS3 models like the slim can’t do. Also, the option to install Linux has been removed. And there’s just something about having a large shiny imposing PS3 that you simply can’t get with the smaller PS3.

The slim is more energy efficient though and you do get HDMI-CEC Bravia sync.

Hi guys,

I dont understand you making this big deal about the artificial DNA.
This is complete useless for crimescenes. Why would anyone create fake
DNA to frame someone, when every person loses endless DNA-samples
every minute. Just get in someones Car or House and you have His DNA.
Or simpler – just touch him on His shoulder or wait Till He is
Standing up from a chair and you have REAL DNA. Unlike tom said, found
dna was never a sure thing – the framing issue was always there.

Bottom line : in court, fake dna changes nothing.

Hey ballers,

You want cheap windows 7? How about free? For all you students out there, many universities are signed up with MSDN Academic Alliance (http://www.msdnaa.net/search/schoolsearch.aspx) – this is a repository of microsoft software, including the windows 7 RTM, which you can get for nothing. I think whatever currency you convert that into, it’s going to stay pretty cheap. (You can also gain access to this by buying an IEEE membership, which is only $15.)
It’s a pretty sweet deal, and most people who have access to it have no idea it exists.
Spread the word,

Helen from NZ
