  • John discusses UK television programme, “The IT Crowd.” (NOTE: During this part of the conversation, I mention the possibility of “The IT Crowd” showing up on BBC America at some point. However, as you can see if you visit the “The IT Crowd” Web site, it is not a BBC property. It is broadcast in the UK on Channel 4. Sorry for the misinformation. – Brian)
  • John talked about his use of NoodleBib.
  • The iPhone is finally here. Brian went to the Apple Store in Freehold Raceway Mall to talk to people in line.
