Hey Buzz crew,
Thought you’d be interested in this article: http://hd.engadget.com/2010/05/20/having-problems-seeing-3d-the-american-optometric-association-w/ Basically Rafe might want to get an exam as “”standard therapy in the form of standard exercises can be an effective treatment and improve the underlying conditions that may be keeping you from seeing 3D”"

Hi Buzz crew!
In episode 1232 you talked about Google TV and how awesome it could be. While I don’t agree and will be the first to buy one ( google fan boy ), Why do we need this? Whats wrong with a using a TV as a second monitor via HDMI cable from either a laptopor desktop? I watch Hulu and Youtube daily on my 42 inch Panisonic through my desktop and a 15 foot HDMI cable. Just launch chrome and find the video and drag it onto the TV and hit full screen. Done. Most new computers and almost all new laptops have HDMI out so this just seems like an extra box in my already clustered Entertainment center. Anyways LOVE THE SHOW AND LOVE THE NEW MUSIC! Tom who? Rafe you rock!
