Tonight's notes: (?)

7pm PT:

We look at sub-$1000 laptops for freshmen in college, and how to save tons of money by contacting the university bookstore first, we look how to install only those parts of Norton Security Suite you want so you can install the firewall of your choice, what that "runtime error - do you want to debug?" message means when you open a web page and more.



8pm PT:

Why Retrospect adds large amounts of data to its backup disk everynight (and why that's normal if you're a heavy user), how one might charge by the minute for (and even possibly store) a full year-long movie in Quicktime using BitPassUnplugged, how one could possibly spend $6,000 and get the very best computer possible, why in Canada Sirius is now making people subscribe to Sirius Canada as opposed to Sirius US and more.



9pm PT:

More on Canadian/American licensing of content, and why the Canadian goverment has created a Canadian version of Sirius (and XM), WiFi versus cell access, recommendations for laptops for various uses, why an iPod might not be recognized on a Win2K system and more.
