In my op, part of the problem is the division on the 'net between the content makers (eg NY Times) and the content providers (Comcast). I feel that I already pay Comcast too much for web access, and now the Times is hoping I'll pay them on top of that? That's a tough sell, no matter what the content is.

Supposedly the updates are coming. It seems that the update to my Sprint HTC Hero keeps being pushed back. It's unclear what (or who) the holdup is -- Sprint? HTC?

The results sound fishy to me, especially with all of the studies out there in places like www.hydrogenaudio.org where mp3s encoded with a modern encoder are transparent from the original in ABX test after ABX test. If that's the case, then how can all of these kids have a preference?

When some people discover the truth, they just can't understand why everybody isn't eager to hear it.
