On today's show, we've discovered the secret of the Bermuda Triangle -- well, some scientists discovered it. We just call it a giant angry Earth fart, like the one that's apparently going to destroy us all. Oh, and also, soft-core porn, falsified expense reports, and a vengeful board. It's the HP Way!

How Brilliant Computer Scientists Solved the Bermuda Triangle Mystery
I just heard you talking about the Apple ‘try before you buy’ story from 9to5mac. I’m the developer of “”Easy Books”" and I had a huge jump in downloads by setting the price to free, and offering enhancements to purchase in-app. For me its really working; people can download the free version, try it out fully and they only pay if they decide it suits them
But there is a problem with this, which is the referral fees. Anyone who links to the apple store for the app receives a percentage of zero, not that attractive. There isn’t any credit given to people linking to an app that then goes on to provide in-app purchase revenue to Apple.
I have one thing to add to the whole net neutrality debate that was going on in Friday’s show. Won’t it be more difficult, as wireless improves, for the carriers to claim limited resources?
For an example from the carriers themselves, look at Sprint and the EVO 4G. They marketed the hotspot feature themselves by saying that while there’s a cap on 3G bandwidth, if you have 4G it’s all you can eat.
The only other thing I had to say was that Brian Cooley’s vision of different content on different internet providers (like cable TV) scares the holy bejeebus out of me. No consumer anywhere wants that.
