AT&T let's you pay for their network holes, Chrysler puts auto manuals on DVD (and how are you supposed to use that in the car?), MySpace says it's video portal now, USB 3.0 is here, Europe gives Google a green light to sell ads to the black marketers, and when you're dead on the web, you're dead.

Re: Apple battery life
1. Apple was contacting customers about iPhone 3.1, not the iPhone 3GS specifically. The gorilla and the iPhone 3G would be covered by this too.
2. And no, it’s not “a lot of work”. You click a flippin’ link in Mail, tap an Install button, and move on with your life.
Hey Buzz Crew, its Kevin from Philadelphia and guess who’s a windows 7 launch party host? Luckily I”m planning my birthday party that weekend, but YES Windows swaggg. And maybe, just maybe, I’ll win the 750 dollar PC. Just between us, the fastest computer I own is half the processor speed necessary for Windows 7. Shhh don’t tell Microsoft I want the Windows branded napkins!
Dear Buzz Crew,
I think it is a bit sad that when Gmail removed the “beta” tag from the logo it was big news, a trending topic on twitter, and mentioned on the show, but when Yahoo! Mail makes some legitimate enhancements… no one really notices.
Just a few days ago Yahoo! Mail got a face lift and added application support, but it wasn’t even mentioned on the show. I know you guys simply cover what people are interested in and NO ONE seems interested in what’s going on at Yahoo! Mail anymore. As someone who has been using the same Yahoo! Mail account for over a decade I find it sad that Yahoo! has lost the mind share and, largely due to their lack of innovation in the past, get no notice for innovating now.
Just thought I’d share my thoughts with you guys and encourage you to at least check out the updates at Yahoo! Mail. There are still a few of us who like the service…
Thanks for the great show!
Clayton from Oklahoma.
