Apple starts pruning

It's all over the web right now.
Apple has sent a Cease and Desist letter to a company called Podcast Ready in order to stop their use of the words "Podcast Ready" and "myPodder" because Apple claims those infringe on their trademarks.

The following links are a number of articles on the subject if you really want to dig into it.

UPDATE - 10/23/06
It looks like things are not as dire as I'd originally heard.
Apple is not attempting to take over "podcast". Rob over at Podcast 411 did some digging and came up with more accurate information about what Apple had actually done and it's not as bad as the rumormill originally implied.
I do not have a link to that show at this time but if you are really curious further reading on the subject should reveal what has actually occured.

Carry on.

Microcast number 003

Tesla is in the news again.
This time though we're talking about a car. Tesla Motors has named the latest entry into the electric car market after the Master of Lightning himself.
The Tesla Roadster is an amazing piece of machinery. 0 to 60mph in about 4 seonds, 250 miles on a single charge, chrage time as low as 3 1/2 hours. The stumbling block is the price; currently the limited editions are going for $90K to $100K.
Not to worry, the good folk at Tesla Motors are also working on an electric 4 door family car for the rest of us.

Carry on!

Yahoo has some video footage of the Tesla Roadster, check it out here.

New show coming in Sept.

Hi everyone.
As I have mentioned life has been putting up some roadblocks. I'm almost at the point where I can start production again and I expect to be back with a new show later this month.

While you are waiting please check out some of the audio books available over at Podiobooks.

Talk to you soon.

Carry on.
