Buzz Out Loud 1286: The Pentagon wants its stuff back (podcast)

The big fight between the Pentagon and Wikileaks has gotten to the high school breakup stage: the Pentagon wants Wikileaks to put its mix tapes, photos, and t-shirts in a shoebox and mail them back. Also, another rousing argument on Net neutrality, this time with Brian Cooley's uniquely capitalist viewpoint in the mix. Good times.

Hi there BOL crew,

I was chatting with someone tonight who works for an Australian government funded technology research company about a presentation they were given recently. This presentation highlighted some technology which is being worked on for the use of P2P protocols in the distribution of data to mobile devices via current (and future) cell technology, with video streaming and file sharing applications.

The use case given involved a large number of users gathering in a single location, in this case at horse racing, and distributing different videos via P2P in a scaleable manner. So you go to the races, place your bet for the next race, then break out your phone and select the unique video stream for the horse you’ve bet on; this is then served to you from both the cell tower and your fellow punters.

Anyway, thought you’d be interested!

Love the show,

Jason from Sydney, Australia

BLACKBERRY RESULTS
Fri: What is the oldest browser that you ACTUALLY USE currently?
Jason: Until I just bought my Windows 7 machine, I had an issue with my Windows 98 machine and couldn't use any other browser than the AOL 5.0 software.
A few people did say that the oldest browser they use... is the BB browser.
A lot of IE6s.

Mon: What scares you more? Facebook or Project Vigilant?
Close, but the edge went to Vigilant over Facebook because at least with Facebook, there is some way to manage/delete acct.

Tue: What other technology would benefit from Corning’s unbreakable glass?
Anonymous: Blackberry phones, of course!
Sebastian: Wine glasses.... So everytime a girl gets irrational (or too drunk) I'm not pulling glass out of my foot for three days.
In Jeff: Unbreakable glass houses so we can all throw rocks in them.
Mark Remple: I am a videographer and have broken more than one camera lens and filters. Unbreakable glass there would be nice!

Wed: Blackberry Torch: Hot or Not?
Hot over Not by a two to one ratio (TON of response!)
Those excited about the Torch were also not excited about AT&T and hoped for other carriers.
Those not excited about the torch were still excited for OS6 to hit other BBs.

Thu: Will you miss Google Wave? If so, why?
Resounding NO!
Chris: I planned on using it in part with Skype to have my fantasy football draft.
Thomas: I used Wave to impress my friends.
