A judge has determined that violating terms of service is bad, but it's not tantamount to unauthorized access of a computer system. Good news for jailbreakers and hackintosh perpetrators. Also Opera 10 is out. I know. I know. But some of you really do care.

A friend whose spouse works warranty repairs for a large electronics retail outlet, some say the BEST retail electronics outlet, that does warranty repairs for Apple products reports the receipt of a repair manual for an Apple tablet! The look is similar to the one on Gizmodo The spouse reports it is 10 inches and runs OS X with a Cocoa layer on top like the iPod. Check your own sources at your local BIG retail store to confirm this.

I was watching episode 1053 and when I saw the dancing iPod girl I noticed that she was dangerously off balance. She wasn’t dancing, she was falling! Then new ipod whatever must have some sort of life alert built in to it. Apple is obviously trying to make in-roads into the highly desirable geriatric market segment.

Anyways, just a thought :-)

The show is alright… Just kidding- LOVE… the… show…

Yo Bolers,

I’m the kind of guy who gives credit where it’s due, and this time, I gotta give credit to Jason for his post-podcast reminder to visit CNET Live and see the web exclusive video. A) I really like the reminder part and B) that was buy far the funniest 6 minutes of my long BOL career. So thanks Jason, for making my day. Nay, my whole week.
