    Its actually no suprise that Al-jazeera's in the top five.It originated with the BBC trying to set up a middle east branch.Because of bean counters the Beeb canned it.Nevertheless most of the staff went with the independant station,so they have a lot of experienced and expert staff.Although treated as a fundalmentalist mouthpiece in the US its very neutral.(Sky subscribers in the UK should be able to recieve it.)

    Yes, I've heard quite a bit about Al-Jeezera. While it is panned in the Western media, it actually has a reputation for balanced coverage and excellent journalism.

    I highly recommend the documentary "Control Room". While it is a "war documentary", it is mostly from the perspective of Al-Jazeera reporters and workers, and gives a lot of insight into their organization and the war.

    Back on topic... Definitely not surpirsed about Apple being #1. Too much good stuff this year.

    I just noticed that Pixar made #5 in N. American region. Jobs is doing well no!

    If Boston is any indication then Apple is really doing a Mass marketing of its iPod. I see the posters just about anywhere. Google just isn't in the mainstream the same way.

    This great news. Maybe this means they will sell more computers.
