off the mark this week with a lament on the common science fiction
trap of authors overstaying their welcome in their own universes.
From there we move into the realm of twins consuming themselves in
the womb, and the occasional leftovers that stick around when they
don't finish their meals. After a quick commentary on killer neck
massagers, we all offer our reactions to
Apple's decision to stop coming to MacWorld after 2009, and
also to the lack of Steve Jobs at that final keynote.
Conversational evolution moves us into the discussion on Apple's
larger future and the role of microtransactions for the tech
industry in general. After we try to talk Lando into using either
Pandora or Last.fm, we discuss the possible need
within the space program for a transition from the government to
the private sector. You may be surprised at who ends up arguing for
more government. Enjoy! Opening
