Buzz Out Loud 1293: 3-D has arrived! (podcast)

It's long-accepted wisdom in the tech world that when the porn industry adopts a technology, that technology has arrived. Sadly for all of us, that day has arrived for 3-D. No, seriously. 3-D porn. Soft-core, thank goodness. Also, how HBO is trying to Benjamin us to death, why Windows Phone 7 might turn out to be cool after all, and the RIAA trying to force FM radios into all cell phones. No, really!

Hey BoLers,

Just wanted to write in about Hulu Plus as you had mentioned it yesterday. I have to say–bait and switch!
First, Plus does not give you all of the same shows found on the website-i.e., smaller catalogue. Second, the limitation to the previous five episodes found on the web version carries over to the iPad/iPhone app-not the back catalogue as promised. It doesn’t apply to all shows but certainly enough to constitute a diminished return for my $10. Last, and certainly not least, shows in “”hi-def”" cause the app to crash directly after the promotional material.
My sense is that it is a constant leap of faith met with a constant failure to deliver as promised. It’s NO Netflix!

I’ll be demanding my money back asap.

Thanks,

Jason from Pittsburgh

Hey BOL,

Just wanted to forward this on to you. Last episode you were talking about cable card supporting VOd and tru2way was going to do this. Well actually it is not since it is dead. http://hd.engadget.com/2010/07/29/retail-tru2way-devies-are-officially-doa-even-panasonic-stops-t/

Sprint data plans aren’t a $30 add on, they are bundled with your voice plan for about $20 more a month and have unlimited messaging, data, tv, navigation, and any mobile any time included with them over a regular sprint texting+voice plan.

Hey gang!
Last month I had the same exact frustration that Rafe now has concerning all of the choices of Android phones across the four U.S.
carriers. So, I made a quick spreadsheet on Google Docs back then to straighten things out. As it turns out, there are 24 Android phones that have been in the conversation this year. I hope this helps everyone is BuzzLand as much as it has helped me.
Love the show!
