Buzz Out Loud 917: It's all bad Apples today!

Brian Tong is here today, but even so, we STILL hate on the new Safari beta and even Snow Leopard, just a little bit. Plus, Tom drops by with his Kindle 2, Microsoft decides its laid-off employees can keep their money, and Vudu is selling HD movies.

On BOL 916 you talked about the “Stolen Microsoft device remotely wiped the Windows Mobile 6.5 device”.

While Molly was quiet right that this remote wipe feature is a popular option for enterprise grade cell phones solutions such as Blackberries.
This feature only wipes data from the device not the operating system from the device. If Microsoft can remotely wipe the operating system from a device this is something new and quite different from other phone wipes.

Tom hope you get over your bad cheese incident…

All the best,

Joe

Hey bol,

Regarding getting banned on xbox live.

Lifetime bans are done via your hardware address too, not just your account.

So even if you sell the xbox it still won’t be able to log onto live.

I think temporary bans are done via accounts.
