PowerUser.tv #26: Google 'Censorship', E3 Bans and Sparkle

This week on the show Kristin, Derek and Brad discuss Google becoming part of the Great Firewall of China by caving to the Chinese government's censorship demands, E3 bans scantily-clad booth babes, the legalities (and ethical issues) of selling pre-loaded iPods/video iPods on eBay for massive profits, and guess what country spams the most? U.S.A! U.S.A!


Brad goes into great detail about Microsoft "Sparkle" and how it's certainly not a "Macromedia Flash killer" as well as a good roundtable discussion about training in the workplace; is it the company's responsibility or the employee's? Disney buys Pixar for a gazillion-jillion dollars and two crappy TV networks merge to create, well, a "doubly craptastic" network. Also, we field a call from Nicholas in Canada who asks whether the PowerUser.TV panel believes certain new Vista features are directly influenced by or being added to address Mac OS X features.


Brad immortalizes the Disney-Pixar purchase in an impromptu song, Derek unveils the theme song to his new show and Kristin (the silverback gorilla) lets pirates have it with a right stern verbal lashing! Download it now for an hour of entertaining tech news!
