Yikes: ABC, CBS, and NBC all block their content from Google TV. New Nook may be first color e-reader. iMovie says no fake Universal trailers for you. And we smash a rocket into the moon. On purpose!

Hey Rafe,

Just want to do a well, actually. The article you referenced tricked Slashdot as well for having one of most sensational headline in a long time. If you read through the “meat” of the article, Google only cut their tax bill by $3.1B instead of the $60B you said. $60B was an aggregate of either an industry or all corporations as a whole (I couldn’t determine this from the terrible article).

I don’t really mind this as a shareholder and this is completely legal. Microsoft and even Apple do the same thing. When discussing this with friends, one made a point: who do you trust more with that $3B? Google or the Government? At least with Google, they would actually put that money to good use. I would be completely happy if they burned 100% of that money is driverless car research instead of bridges to nowhere.

Thanks guys,

Jason from Boston

Hey Buzz Crew,

WHY can’t I buy a big digital photo frame which I can log into (Facebook connect) and have it sideshow through my photo’s from my Facebook account which it could pull in real time over WiFi?? This seems like a no-brainer, yet I can’t find a product that’s available. Get on it Zuck! and digital photo frame manufacturers I want one.

Love. The. Show.

Franklin, the Engineer from Tennessee.
