Looks like an Apple Logo
Something about Texwood, a clothing company that had an Apple-lookalike logo even before Apple came in. (You can see the logo at http://www.applejeans.com)
Java well actually
What’s shakin’ Buzz Crew,
Regarding the Java discussion during episode 697. Hopefully I’m not getting too technical. I’m a Java developer, and the reason Java leaves the old version is to keep from breaking software people are currently running. Some JAR files included as part of a software may be broken by going to a newer version of Java. This would make people more upset.
Love the show,
Hey guy love your show,
Can someone please tell me how to turn off Facebook’s Beacon because I was with my friends and and we are watching the game and we order a couple of burgers online and little did we know that the service we use to order food from local restaurants, SeamlessWeb, is supported by Facebook’s Beacon. Now I am not the skinniest you’ll meet but the 3 burgers and 4 orders of fries I ordered on Sunday night did not make me look so phat.
thanks for making me look like a pig for my 756 friends…

Internet issues in Canada
Hello Buzz Crew,
This is Rodrigo from Brazil in Toronto. As you might know I moved here last year, at the beginning I had problem finding one good ISP.
My first option was Rogers since the house I was living already had Rogers Cable TV. I tried it for a few weeks until it drove me crazy, bandwidth throttling was spoiling the fun.
So I decided to switch to Bell, used it without problems during a couple of months until the lame provider decided to throttle my bandwidth again.
I then canceled my Bell Internet and signed with Teksavvy a Canadian company much loved by many canadian geeks. But this monday my Internet also got throttled.
As far as I know I have no more options here in Toronto and it’s looking like I’ll just have to suck it up and forget about decent Internet speeds…
Brazil might be a third world country but at least we had some decent Internet down in Banana Land.
