Alex and Kevin are on the hunt for new HDTVs. Kevin cracked his iPhone. Leaked Media Defender Emails. Dr. Invents HIV Destroying Enzyme. UF Student Tazered at Kerry Speech. Plus Kevin's "Big Announcement"
Kevin has a huge announcement. A major announcement. A massive announcement.
BTW, Kevin and Alex are looking to upgrade in the HDTV department... Alex's got a big thing for Sony's Bravia line.
Kevin and Alex aren't pissed about Apple dropping the price on the iPhone, iPhone, but both are stoked that Apple's offering a $100 store credit to folks that bought early.
Viral video wrecks another career: a Google video posting of WBKO TV's Weather man caught on TV playing with boob, was made from a tape shot years earlier and stolen by a former station employee. Videotape is forever, and a videotape titled "Breast Milk Donors," well, don't leave it lying around.
Hopefully you've seen the new Digg Profiles, Kevin says they "make it easy for you to share your favorite stories and discover new interesting content by seeing what your friends are digging" and that "it's also even easier to find and add friends on Digg." There's a walkthrough video of some fave new features on the Digg blog.
Speaking of disturbing video online, Diggers went heavy on UF Student Tasered at John Kerry Speech a home movie posted on YouTube of a young man "that rushed into a Kerry Q&A session with multiple cops in tow." It sounds like the audience is clapping for the cops yanking the dude away from the microphone... but things turn ugly long before the kid yells "Don't taze me bro."
Did we mention Kevin Rose's big announcement? Is it the sale of Digg? He's moving to Alaska to herd goats? He's getting married? Running for Congress on an anti-DRM platform?
Uh, no. Kevin no longer owns a desktop computer. Yeah, Alex and the crew off camera weren't that impressed either, but Kevin's had a desktop his whole life, at least for gaming. OK, maybe he'll still need a PC for gaming... but, you know, it felt like a big deal for Kevin.
