Sep 27th 2011 1:05PM Now they just have to find someone who's still using Loopt.
Jun 27th 2011 1:21PM How could you not include "1776"?!?
Feb 17th 2011 12:36PM I'd be content if Sirius/XM would just deliver the channels they offer now without the compression (and resulting distortion). I suppose I might feel differently if I used my subscription in my home or workplace, but the only receiver I have is in my car's head unit, and it's pretty unlikely I'm going to do any liking/disliking at 70mph.
Dec 14th 2010 1:20PM Seriously? Less than 12 months after the incident on US3709 over the exact same issue? Oy.

Dec 13th 2010 12:58PM Weapons-grade balonium. For one thing, LTE is on the roadmap not only for Verizon, but for damn near every GSM carrier in Europe. (The reason VZW went with LTE - as opposed to WiMax, like Sprint - was to finally marry technologies with its corporate stepsibling, Vodafone.) It's highly unlikely that Apple, staunch in holding to the notion of one global radio configuration for iPhone, would build an LTE-based product and have a CDMA chip be the only fallback radio. For another, there's the fact that Apple has never wanted to be on the bleeding edge when it comes to mobile phone tech - they prefer to let the carriers and other hardware companies work out the kinks, then swoop in with a superior user experience. (Look at the mk1 iPhone...)
Finally, VZW themselves have said not to expect any LTE-capable phones until at least mid-2011. The only devices showing up at the launch of the LTE network are USB data sticks. It seems almost unthinkable that not only will Apple announce an LTE-only 'iPhone 5' in January (6 months ahead of the normal product refresh cycle), but that it would be ready to launch day & date with the announcement.
Dec 6th 2010 11:28PM Actually, they've aired six new episodes so far this season. Whether they were any good, that's another issue.
Nov 22nd 2010 1:37PM Seems like this list wouldn't be complete without Salt Lick BBQ at AUS!
Nov 15th 2010 1:26PM One problem with the notion of a three-way crossover - while "Cleveland" and "Family Guy" obviously take place in the same continuity, it's been established (I think) that "American Dad" exists in a continuity of its own. The only previous crossover came in the FG episode "Lois Kills Stewie", in the form of a simulation. (And I might be wrong, but I think there was an episode of FG where we see Stan watching FG on his TV, which implies a separate continuity.)
Oct 6th 2010 1:11PM Not entirely correct. Geoff Peterson exists because Ferguson is a huge Mythbusters fan, and became friendly with Grant Imohara (the 'robot guy') and the other cast members (they've been guests on the show several times, and Craig has done whole Mythbusters weeks). Geoff was a gift from Grant for Craig's help in getting Grant past 100K followers on Twitter. Adam & Jamie have no direct connection to Geoff.
Oct 6th 2010 1:06PM "Does that mean the show is heading back to Fridays where it has a chance of scoring more than a million viewers? Here's hoping."
Not likely. SyFy has "Sanctuary" scheduled for the Friday/10pm slot currently occupied by "Haven"; with WWE Smackdown taking up most of primetime on Fridays, there really isn't anywhere for SGU to go. (Besides, if "Warehouse 13" could find an audience on Tuesdays, why can't SGU?)
