    As I stated on ‘WebBeat’ comment, I’m happy the world is free of Bin Laden, but his death should not be celebrated, I think lets just remember the fallen he caused, for I too was touched by a loss. If I was installing a 100 Terabit Internet pipeline, I’d use it to feed the large offices and corporations I set up for web & mail access, it is a fact that the more users on an internet based server, the more bogged down the IP connection will be. I love the ‘BustedTees’ site, I have a “T-Shirt freak” friend who will LOVE it, thanks for that one. Terrific show, can’t wait to see the new HD monitor in action on Friday… “B”

    Hello Cali,
    thank you and your team for putting together another GeekBeatTV episode.

    I think it’s not smart to enjoy the death of the worlds most wanted terrorist since 2001. Mainly because those terrorists have numbers 2, 3, 4, etc. ready to take over. I understand the sentiment to want to be relieved, but the threat level is still very high. Besides I don’t think actual news is for your company to worry or talk about. Please stick to the technology news.

    I’m glad that technology is still innovating. Bring on the future :D

    Bose Gifted to MIT
    I’m glad to see the Bose founder giving back to were his knowledge start in life came from. I wish more successful people would follow his example. Knowledge belongs to the people and should be shared as much as possible in my view.
