    The most surprising thing of them handing out those videocams was that they were all returned after the show, undamaged.

    Aw, c'mon, you know they chose the "superfans" who would do anything for the Boys.

    I've always thought that there should be a grass-roots application that could quickly take down phishers and spammers.  If enough people "voted" for the IP as a phisher/spammer then it would start to get slammed by an army of people running this app in a task tray or something.  There could be some kinda plug-in in mail apps where you could "vote" by clicking "This is fake" or whatever.

    Good job ladies!

    I know that do I?  I don't think anybody knows except BB and the people who had the cameras...but, whatever makes you all tingly inside!  Smiley

    I guess they figure the flaming paint job warrants the steep price tag....
    All these big computer companies have to do like car companies do. Create a new brand called something completely different and offer higher end products. Dell is like honda or toyota... they need some branding for their acura or lexus market.... At least attempt to trick me into buying something overpriced but don't go overboard like Acer did and create a "ferrari" laptop, those guys always take things so literally.. jeez

    I agree, but it's been something we've discussed, but no changes yet.  We'll change something if it makes sense and we hear about it from enough people.  Wink

    Depending on your browser, you can tell it to open up the link in a new window or tab.

    Interesting.  I'm sure that will help a lot. 

    My idea was this, plus actively hammering the site to bring it down... get it at the source!  Obviously, MS wouldn't provide a product to do this, but that's why I used the word "grassroots."  Power to the people!!!  Smiley

    I think I remember someone (Lycos Europe I think) that had a screensaver that basically did this.  Not sure if they still do or not. 

    Some of the recent phishing attempts I've seen lately have been pretty sophisticated.  Everyone thinks spam is the problem, but phishers are way more serious.

    It's when I FORGET to shift-click (same as right-click | Open in IE) that's frustrating.  But not a big deal.

    So, I'm guessing the two of you are living in Seattle now.  I was certain Laura had moved up there, but I am still uncertain about Tina.  Is she going to stay in Seattle, or will she return to L.A.  In either case, both cities are thousands of miles from here... *sigh*

    There just aren't enough of those on vlogs.  Nice to see you're using the freedoms the web affords.

    Love it.  Keep up the awesome work guys.

    I thought on10 may forever be the North West's try-so-hard-but-never-quite-get-there cousin of the often entertaining but totally original Rocketboom, but today, I think you did it...
     
    Totally original, and even MORE entertaining, geek friendly magazine content..

    Soon will come the most important time of all, when your viewers proudly spread the on10 URL and say, "I found the cool shown on the web... RB? Kinda last year!"...

    Unseen Video is the kind of randomly evolving animation I'd like to see more of on the web.  Sorry, I can't send you a video, Laura.  Here's a link to a screenshot I dedicated to you.  Wink

    Interesting news. 

    Yep, the weather in Seattle sucks. But, uh, for many (lazy) people (like me)...that means less time outside enjoying nature/encoutering Bigfoot (as well as getting much-needed exercise) and more time inside...gaming and net-surfing. 

    Hey Dell, when I win The Lotto, Mega Millions, or text-message the correct case on Deal or No Deal...then I might think about buying the Renegade.  Note: I hope a certain Paris Hilton "catch phrase" (not one, imo) won't be used to advertise that PC.

    Finally, I'm here to announce to those that want to kick my * in XBL (yeah, right)...you'll get your chance this weekend. And that is no (April Fool's) joke.

    I meant to type, encountering.
     
    Scott, great "How to Pick a Good Point and Shoot" segment, yesterday.

    And...is there anyway I can visit the show, sometime in the near future? It's about a 45 min drive to Redmond.

    I guess considering it happened 176 miles from here, I should be ok.
    But no more driving around trying to connect Mario Kart Wi-Fi on my DS for a while Sad
