back to article There's no way Ballmer survives Yahoo! disaster scenario

Microsoft is buying Yahoo! to . . . oh, that's right no one from Redmond has really explained that one yet. Most of the pundits think Redmond has an ad play in mind.

    Production values..

    I like your podcasts, find 'em interesting and all that.

    However, you can scrap the headset boom mike. I really don't want to listen to mouth noises. Makes the option of downloading the high-quality version moot - listening to mouth noises at a higher sample rate and higher quality is not what most people want.

    Plese use real microphones with pop screens. Keep your nose away from the mike. Let me concentrate on the ideas rather than the spurious oral emanations.

    'Kay? Thanks.

    Second time around with the stores

    Funny thing is they have tried the Microsoft stores before... They partnered with Sony and built several Sony/Microsoft centric stores... The Metreon in San Francisco was one of several and after the joint venture failed to boost sales enough to justify the expenditure they backed out leaving Sony to hold the bag.

    'snot SoHo

    If you mean London, it's Soho, no SoHo. The latter is an abbreviation for Small Office / Home Office I think.

    Life, it seems, is not without a sense of irony --- I am unable to stream the content in Firefox on Fedora 8. It buffers the stream to the end, then takes the whole machine with it, ramming the CPU to 100%.

    Weak lulz.

    @ 'snot SoHo

    Ahhhh, he defaulted to the US version which is short for 'South of Houston' (St) - the UK version is just a name..

    Please drop Mr. Rosenberg

    Because he spouts a lot of inane drivel that isn't particularly amusing.

    When and where in London? No good saying "I'll be there" if we don't know where "there" is really.

    Millbank Tower

    I happen to work on the floor below Ubuntu in Millbank Tower. Any chance you could ask Mark S if he wouldn't mind hooking me up with some wifi? The IT department at the Environment Agency is seriously anal, and it'd be good to avoid the 25min boot time on the hot-desk PC's.

    For a choice pub, I'd recommend The Jerusalem Tavern near Farringdon Station. Not Soho, obviously, but definitely worth the detour...
