Buzz Out Loud 931: Big butt small laptops

The Lenovo Yoga isn't a Netbook, it's a ripoff of the HP Jornada. It also apparently fits in a pocket, but it's a little long for all our pockets, even Jason's. We also cover iPhone 3.0 rumors and the truth about battery life lies.

“TV stations must alert viewers if their new digital signals don’t reach areas covered by their soon-to-be-defunct analog broadcasts, the Federal Communications Commission has ruled.
The stations must also inform viewers if they might need new antennas to tune in digital stations, the commission said Friday.

The new rules were prompted by lessons learned after Feb. 17, when about a quarter of U.S. TV stations turned off their analog signals. The remaining stations are scheduled to cut their transmissions on June 12….”

BOL Crew;

On Saturday’s show, you wondered, “why use Twitter hashtags when you can just use search?” For a very specialized term like SXSW, there’s probably no difference. But searching for #Lost gets me tweets about the show, searching just the term “lost” also gets me tweets about all the people who lost their car keys, for example.

So the hashtags do help to separate the specific from the generic.

Love the show,
Jeff from Huntsville AL
