Notes From Today's Computers 2K7 Radio Show! (July 8th, 2007)

"Good morning everybody, you're tuned to Computers 2K7 on sports radio 850 The Buzz" and so began this mornings show as we do every Sunday morning from 8am - 10am here in Raleigh, NC. You can download the show from the show's website.

The first segment was dominated by iPhone content. My co-host Spencer went down to the Apple store in Durham (yes, the same Durham from the movie Bull Durham with Kevin Costner and Susan Sarandon) and got his hands on one for the first time. He didn't actually buy one, just tried it out. He was impressed and is waiting for that form factor to be applied to the next gen on iPod. A number of companies and individuals are already hard at work trying to figure out how to unlock the phone. Our first call was even iPhone related... geeez, enough of the iPhone already!

We had a number of interesting calls including one from a guy who wanted our help in speeding up his machine. We figured it was a virus or spyware of some type but before calling us he decided to take matters into his own hands and try to remedy the situation. He said he went looking through the Add/Remove Programs dialog and started removing programs he didn't recognize or remember installing. He said one program that he didn't recognize was the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 so away it went. He said he also saw the Microsoft .NET 2.0 Framework but hadn't removed that yet. I advised he NOT uninstall that one. :-)

We also had a call from a guy who's laptop display will only work when he presses just above the F5 key on boot up. Yikes! Sounds like a connector problem to me!

Anyway, feel free to check out the show yourself and download it from here.

Have a day.  :-|
