I just use search, it does a pretty good job. I searched “Triathlon” for kicks and got a full page of podcasts, refine the search “triathlon training” and it drilled down. “Triathlon tips” got different results. Works for me.

People want things better and different, but don’t like change.

Hey Buzz crew,

You discussed on episode 1060 regarding Google checkout getting involved with paying for newspaper articles on the web. Tom discussed making it as simple as the Apps store, and figuring .02 would be ok, and not seeing how it could possibly added up without our knowing.
Another solution to this problem could possibly be paying for points, just like XBOX does to pay for downloadable content. How many Rockband songs have you added, without even giving thought to how much money you have actually spent on the game.
This would keep you logged in, and to read the rest of this story it would require ‘x’ points, and if you don’t have the points available, your redirected to a site to add points.

Just a thought, the show is AWESOME! Thank
