Tivo will be a target for Google. This will happen within a year. Mark my words.
My mac doesn't have this option. What now, smarty pants?
Welcome to 1999.
I heard that some folks live on the other half of Earth.
I love Wolfram Alpha:
This reminds me of the time where I had lizards in my case. I started smelling something funny and pinpointed the smell at my computer case. I opened her up and found 6 dead lizards.

I guess they got in the house and found a warm spot and couldn't get back out. I wish I had pics.

Thuraya is $2500/month for unlimited usage. 144 kbps. All you need to do is couple 10 or so of these together and you'll have a nice connection (albeit, with fairly high latency). I think it only works in Europe, Western Asia, and Africa.
As for the required Flash plugin, so what? It's already everywhere.
