Submission + - Glenn Beck's 912 Project - Taking America Back (youtube.com)

brad-x writes: "There's something to be said for a call to return to our book/witch burning roots. I for one think this is exactly what America needs — to become aware of its true opinions and beliefs, and not those forced on it by left-wing socialists in control of big media.

An excerpt:

Woman: [Shouts] "Burn the books!" [applause]
Man: "I don't think you were serious about that, were you?"
Woman: "I am too."
Man: "Burn all the books?!"
Woman: "The ones in college, those, those brainwashing books."
Man: "[laughs] Brainwashing books?"
Woman: "Yes."
Man: "Which ones are those?"
Woman: "Like, the evolution crap, and, yeah..."

In seriousness, this is a rather stunning look at the true grass-roots opinions of the average American as expressed in a political gathering. What's next?"

Submission + - David Pogue reviews the Apple TV

necro81 writes: David Pogue of the NY Times has devoted his weekly column to the newly released Apple TV. He also has a video blurb to go with it. He compares it to the XBox360 and Netgear's EVA8000, which also deliver content traditionally trapped in a PC onto a TV set. Apple TV Pros: setup is as easy as can be, it's small and silent form factor will be good for home theaters, and the interface and remote control are intuitive. Cons: HDTV only, playback is limited to formats playable within iTunes, and no internet functionality other than movie trailers.

If the story is approved please approve the one using .nyud.net:8080 as I forgot to include that in the first submission. Sorry. :("
