On today's show, how future generations will know all too well where they were conceived, thanks to Facebook Places--and yes, it's opt-out and lets your friends check you in, but somehow, I can still find a way to love it. Plus, Intel buys McAfee, Verizon's bringing TV to your iPad (in bed), and Windows 7 is killing it!

Hi Buzz crew,
Quick note about TiVo and Video on demand. Last year they partnered with Seachange (who provides VOD for the majority of cable systems including cox) to develop a way to get video on demand on TiVo without tru2way. Hopefully this is the first of many cable company announcements.
As far as the logistics, the TiVo premiere is currently a oneway cable card device as it doesn’t have docsis hardware. As much as I would like another USB dongle, I hope they use the internet connection to request content.

Love the show!
Just listened to Tuesdays show, and I did a quick count of FM radios I own.
1 in the car
1 in the pick-up
1 in the big stereo (I have an old style component system)
3 alarm clocks with radios
2 boom boxes
1 walkman (tape player and fm radio)
1 dedicated ear-phone headset radio
3 small dollar-store fm radios (you get a pair of headphones and a radio for a buck. Since I destroy headphones like Natali goes through iphones, I have many of these)
Out of all these the only one that gets used is the one in the car because I do not have a aux plug in the car stereo. But still I do not listed to over the air FM stations. I use a FM transmitter to listen to podcasts on the drive home (usually BOL).
I do not see the need to increase the number of radios I own. Even in an emergency, I can always find one somewhere.
Hey Buzz Crew,
This came to me at about 3am this morning…the absolute killer app for the Google TV set top box thing:
While watching live tv or something being streamed you see something hilarious or ridiculous. You hit a button on your Google remote, it snaps a screenshot of whatever you’re watching then allows you to apply a stamp like FAIL (as much as I hate that term) or WTF and then post it directly to Facebook/Twitter/Buzz or, if you’re in Brasil, Orkut.
Ideally, you could snap some video too…but that would probably incur the wrath of the TV and movie industries.
Seriously, how many times have you wished you could do that…or is it just me?
Love the show!

PS: someone emailed you about the iiNet 1TB broadband cap yesterday, well Primus just point 1 upped them with a 1.1TB cap this morning…see what I did there? ;)
