Tonight’s show with myself and Sean takes a look at the freshly minted Forbes Web Celeb 25 list. Not surprisingly neither of us made the list but we did realize that is that if you want a shot at next years list there’s a few things you will need.
Top of the list is the famous Mashable Stubble Razor with a helping hand from the patented Arrington look-a-like wig and a liberal dose of Tequila madness. Never mind about creating anything unique or useful. Just apply the above three things to your life and you could have a shot at next year’s list.
Finally Sean and I express some surprise over support for Microsoft’s Bing search engine as it comes from an unexpected person.

In tonight’s show Sean and I cover a couple of subject starting off with the silliness of Italy thinking that it’s actually going to make YouTube responsible for the content uploaded by Italian citizen.
Ya .. right. That plan is going to work out real well.
Next up was a quick look at the next serious of great ads from Verizon in its on-going battle with AT&T. It’s so goo that I’m embedding one of them here and Sean will be embedding the other on his blog.
Finally we take a look at a few famous names and how they have burned their bridges with one of the biggest tech companies in the world.

Tonight’s show definitely goes from one extreme to the other as Sean and I start out talking about all the strange and wonderful things that PC people do to their machines to either fix broken stuff or make the machines run faster. This came about because of a post I had just down over at WinExtra about folks that bake their video cards to fix them.
Ya. Bake them.
Anyway we return to form when the subject of Amazon and their recent dust up with Macmillian Publishers over the pricing of e-book sold through Amazon. Surprisingly both of us for the most part came out on the side of Amazon with their original but not the capitulation.

In what is becoming a Friday tradition Sean and I take a look at the leading headlines as found on Techmeme at show time. There is no in depth analysis of the actual posts that got them there but rather we have some fun with them.
This is followed up with a quick scan of the service we both love to hate because it is so stupid and yes we are talking about Blippy – the service that lets you brag to the web how you are spending your money.
Before all this goodness though we do take care of a slight bitch as a result of a post by MG Siegler over at TechCrunch.
