  1. My favorite part of the show: “Uncontrolled Tech Support.” I was listening to the podcast and yelling for Michael Sauers to scroll down. My fellow commuters thought it was odd…

  2. @Chris – Well, as you can tell from the show title, I thought it pretty amusing myself. Wasn’t sure if it made for great audio, so I’m glad you enjoyed it.

  3. I listened to this (on my new toy) last night and also thought the Uncontrolled Tech Support bit was funny. I also greatly enjoyed hearing you all make fun of Cuil. I think making fun of some new site ought to be a regular feature on the show. The one difficulty of listening instead of participating is that I keep trying to comment and realizing I can’t.

  4. Well, I was considering introducing a segment where we talk about some new website/service/technology. I’m sure it would involve a lot of making fun of things.
