1273 - A little bit of the old UltraViolet
Tuesday, July 20, 2010

Another decade, another attempt at an almost certainly ill-fated universal DRM scheme. Hooray! This time, it's UltraViolet, and no, Disney (meaning Apple) isn't on board. Also, new details on how Google and China reached their license renewal deal. Upshot: diplomacy in action. And Apple is closing in on surpassing Microsoft in actual revenue. Yowsa.

Hey Buzz Gang;

Two quick points between Friday’s Show and Monday’s Show.

1. I had the infection/virus on my router at home and successfully removed it over the weekend. It is a complete pain; essentially your router sprouts up pop-up ads and browser redirections no matter what browser you are using. It is especially common when clicking on Google links. There is no really simple way to remove all of the malware; but you have to reset your router and clear settings on your computer. (Big thanks to for all their help. If you or anyone else happen to get this router infection, head over there and they can help you out). If you notice your computer having a lot of pop-ups or links in Google not working and bringing up “”Google Analytics”" then you most likely have it.


Hey Buzz Crew,

Improv Everywhere did the whole desktop at Starbucks thing back in 2008. And they did it epically with not one, not two, but three desktop computers. And did they use nice portable LCD monitors? No they used CRT monitors.

Just thought you should know,
