Hi Tom:

Now here’s a 3D TV technology I think I could love… “flying copter- pixel” displays. I’m not a very big fan of the current 3D technologies (glasses mandatory), but this might change my views if it ever becomes a viable technology and ready for the marketplace. It brings to mind 3D Star Wars chess boards. I would love to hear your thoughts & comments on it. Keep up the great work on your webcast … it’s great to see Molly back on the show!

So I’m sure you guys have gotten a lot of responses to Beja’s email -

If I buy a table from Target, I can put whatever I want on that table
- I’m not locked down to only using Target sold paper, eating meals on
it made only with Target sold food, decorating it with only a Target
sold center piece.

The reason the Apple lockdown of apps makes me uncomfortable is that
an operating system is a platform. I should be able to use that
platform however I want if I really own it. I don’t purchase Apple
because they make it very clear that the platform isn’t mine – It’s
Apple’s.

Hi Buzz Crew,
On episode 1172, Molly said she would spend some time figuring out what patent she would get on a shirt from Braindex. My suggestion would be US Patent #6360693. It is a patent for an ‘animal toy’ that looks very much like what most of us would call a stick (see Figure 1 in the attached pdf copy). I love the part that suggests that it could be made from wood and built to float in water. It is not very high tech but I wish I would have thought of it…

Love the show
Dave the LTE engineer
