FORUM POSTING SUGGESTING TOPIC--- So, Webware tells me that Comcast will CANCEL my service if I go over their new 250 GB limit twice (ever?). And Comcast won't tell me how much I'm using until they threaten me the first time. I use two online backup services Mozy (for backups), and Sugar Sync (so my work data is available to me from any location). My old computer died last month and I downloaded my 50 GB bacup from Mozy. Granted, that doesn't happen all the time, but you never know.
Nice job on the Chrome episode, Rafe. Question for you: For Chrome as an application platform to really change the OS paradigm, it would need to be bootable. As I think you mentioned, Linux would probably fill that bill. However, would there be any problem using Linux or a Linux-based version of Chrome to run what would be an ad-supported platform such as this? In other words, does that fact that Google would be using ad-support to derive income from the Chrome-based application launch platform create any problems with using Linux? Are there any prohibitions in the Linux terms of service for that kind of use? Thanks, and again, nice job on the Chrome podcast. Rick from NYC
COMMENST ON TV ONLINE I listened to the episode, but I don't know if I simply missed veoh.com Some interesting stuff there not found on Hulu. Slikkster
Clears throat Um...Tom? Tv.com? Cnet property? Just sayin'...how 'bout some Cnet property love? By the by, I'm obsessed with a show I found on TV.com called Regenesis. I think you'd like it, Tom. It's like a non-snarky version of House, but with viruses and germs. Hulu has it, too. Tv.com's video page doesn't show what season and ep number is which, and it seems like they're a little mixed up. ceruleanlobster Next episode - Road Test
