    How odd - my Talk of the Nation was on 2 hours ago. I guess I'll wait for the stream.

    stream... more like a toilet flush

    NPR only offers RealPlayer and Windows Media Player as choices to listen to their streaming audio. I, for one, do not consider those to be choices.

    When will people learn that the superior format for streaming audio and video is QuickTime??? I wrote an email, requesting that they offer their target demographic a real choice, but it's doubtful anything will become of it...

    Did you mention that QuickTime Streaming Server is free? :)

    I think they used to support QT and then dropped it.

    I listened live. No Jobs. But a nice discussion of the anniversary of the Mac.

    yeah it was alright i think. Except for the pcmag guy. And the guy who said apple needs to use more common hardware and not propietary cdrom drives and hard drives.

    the same number of centuries since you could plug in any ol' USB 2-button mouse.
