I mentioned on the last podcast that I was going to talk to Bryan and see if we could make the podcast theme available for download in high quality. Bryan came through for us, and even made a page on his web site with all of his current podcast theme songs.

Have I mentioned that Bryan Page rocks?

Screening Callers

This article by WSJ claiming Sharp is just now getting iPhone 5 screens to Apple seemed hard to believe…

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444426404577648453895346694.html

But then after reading from Katie Floyd that iPhone 5 sold out in 1.5 hrs, maybe it’s not so hard to believe. Limited quantities to start with?
