After much thought and discussion, we here at BOL have decided to change the focus of the show from technology to carpentry. We think you're going to like it. Also, botnets 2.0 strike fear into our collective hearts, new cloaking technology seems awesome until Rafe buzzkills it, and it's my last day as a full-time host on BOL. See you in two Mondays!

EmailsEdit

Hi all. I am not a famous person. I have never voted for an idol. I’ve only been an AT&T customer for 3 weeks so I’ve only managed to send less than 100 txt messages - not a heavy texter. Even after all that, I still got the American idol spam txt yesterday. You guys made me feel like I’m a “somebody”. Thanks!

Hi BOL Crew, Long time first time, At&T said they were sending these texts to “heavy texters” and people who had voted for American Idol in the past. I fit in to both categories. I have voted twice from my phone and my sister, my mother, and myself send 8000, 5000, & 4000 texts a month respectivly. I’m a little hurt i didn’t get a message. :’( Love the show.
