Rafe wonders what could possibly go wrong with Comcast monitoring its users to protect them from malware. In the process, Rafe makes a few comments that have us wondering whether he'll return home to any Internet service at all. Barnes and Noble is rumored to be rolling out an Android e-book reader, while Steve Ballmer claims that the PC is the best e-book reader.

So, I get up at O-Dark-Hundred to watch the greatest space collision since Shoemaker-Levy 9.
5-4-3-2-1 Impact! … Impact?
Watching the stunned NASA commentators, one of whom says “I Don’t know what we just saw.”…

I beg to differ with the slow Windows 7 boot times story you reported on in Episode 1080. I have run a script (on the RTM 32-bit version) that measures the time, from shutdown to usable desktop, multiple times and consistently get a time of 54 seconds, which does jive with the times your lab got in their testing, but not what Lolo Technologies achieved in theirs.
I think the bigger story here is why is Lolo getting slower times?
I’m not saying it’s because they sell PC tune-up software and may have a conflict of interest, I’m just sayin`…..
Thanks! Love the show.
Seriously, I love you. <3
