Tip of the day
If you buy a couple of Dual Layer DVD+R spindles, make sure you've got a bloody Dual Layer DVD Writer.

Web 2.0: A chance for Tech Show presenters to bombard us with buzzwords
Just watching "CNN Connects: Our Networked World". It's basically a round table discussion on the "new" explosion of internet usage in the form of Youtube and the like.
It's a relatively interesting discussion. There's a co-founder of Flickr, the founder of Facebook, the CEO of Orange etc.
But, as usual, the presenter is absolutely clueless concerning the current world of the internet and just reeks of condescension and stupidity. In between lame jokes about Second Life and The Matrix and rampant hand-waving, she comes up with gems like this:
"If Web 2.0 is more than just a marketing gimmick, then there will be a Web 3.0, won't there?"
I don't understand why the big broadcasting networks don't hire people who are genuinely into the field. It's like they called up the weather team and asked them to pick a weather girl at random to present a tech show. Makes me want to throw the TV out of the window.
