708 is special

Dear Buzzers out loud,

I noticed that episode 708 is coming up next. This is special because if you type “708″ into a calculator and turn it upside down, it spells "BOL." You can also try typing in 710.77345

Skype correction

Well actually,

The article from Reuters said, “Internet calling company Skype said on Monday that it would offer an unlimited long-distance calling service for customers who want to reach friends and family without computers or Internet access.”

This means that the receiving party of the call need not have Internet access or a computer. The calling party must still use a computer (or Skype handset) to initiate the call.

Love the Show!

Windows release patterns

Releasing Windows 7 instead of fixing Vista takes Microsoft down an interesting road. They will just teach folks to skip every other generation. Microsoft would have to start planning a bum version of windows for folks to skip while waiting on the real upgrade.

98, Keep.
ME, Skip
XP, Keep
Vista, Skip
7, Keep

Leapfrog anyone?
