Hey Buzz Crew,

I was listening to Yesterday’s podcast (Thursday at CES) and Leo was
talking about how MS is a “Me Too” company. Then you all went on to
talk about Ford Sync and how awesome it was. None of you pointed out
who Ford Sync was by… It’s by the “Me Too” company Microsoft. Just
thought I’d point that out.

Rock on,
Josh from Indiana

Hey Buzzos
Is it just me or was Tom Merrit flipping me off at 0:08 in his First Look video at the Samsung E-Reader from CES? Is he sending us some sort of subliminal message about Samsung or E-Readers? Why can’t he just use his pointer finger to point at it? I mean, it is called a POINTER finger.

Hey gang,
There's a hidden message behind ESPN 3D that many people aren't getting when the channel was announced.

1 - ESPN
2 - ESPN 2
3 - ESPN U
4 - ESPNews
5 - ESPN Classic
6 - ESPN Deportes
7 - ESPN Plus
8 - ESPN 3D

ESPN 3D is the eighth channel, making ESPN 3D the unofficial ESPN the ocho.
