An analyst from Morgan Stanley asserts that Apple would sell more iPhones if it offered the phone on more carriers. Really? Wow. We also have an example of a church leader misusing the prefix "cyber." But that's not as crazy as IBM taking on Google. Or is it?

Hi Folks

I thought I’d share this example of Apple’s ever-reaching IP protection policies. Just as background, Woolworths is Australia’s largest retailer (80% of supermarket business goes through two companies here) and they have interests in electronics, hardware and liquor. This news made front page! I recall Fake Steve Jobs writing that Microsoft is like the Borg. I guess this suggests that perhaps Apple isn’t too far different.

Love the show!


Hey guys, in regards to episode #1076 and the rant about the ‘cyber-’ prefix, I just wanted to throw this in. I’m LDS , and as I was listening to General Conference today (when the church leaders speak and church members worldwide tune in via TV, internet, radio, and satellite broadcasts), one of the speakers (they are almost all older men) mentioned ‘cybertechnology’. I thought ‘what??’

Anyway, I love ya, keep it going.

Buzz Crew,

Great show!

You read an email on your October 1 show from James the Field Engineer about Star Trek Props. I worked in pumps/irrigation sales for a couple of years, and found that Infiltrator -brand effluent-irrigation chambers are used very, very heavily in TNG, DS9 and Voyager series. They are used as wall support structures and decorations on walls in many diverse sets. As a guy who worked with the stuff every day, it became very distracting to see it in reruns. But it was clever, I’ll give ‘em that.

Also, in about every third episode, an away team would land on a planet, and in the settlement on that planet would be the same, identical trussed lighting-support structure (like for stadium lights, just lighter duty) right in the middle of the village. It would always go up past the camera frame and, presumably, be holding the set lights. But they made it look like it was the aliens’ normal technology. For every alien culture ever.

You won’t possibly care about this enough to read it on air, but Tom might get a kick out of it if he recognizes the Infiltrator linked stuff in various sizes on old STTNG reruns.
