Dozens jeer Google over Net neutrality Video Transcript
-Net neutrality is under attack! What do we do? -Stand up, fight back! -Y'all, net neutrality is under attack! What do we do? -Stand up, fight back! -It's our open Internet that's under attack, y'all. What do we do? -Stand up, fight back! -Companies like Google have actually benefited from a free and open Internet, and what we would expect from Google, what we wanna still see from Google is the upholding of their principle of Don't be Evil and then protecting the free and open Internet. -Why'd you come here today? -'Cause I support net neutrality. I feel like people need to have access to information. I feel like a tiered Internet system is not an equal way to have people accessing the information that should be ubiquitous. -300,000 signatures are going up to Google. Yeheey! -Yeheey! -Wooh! -[unk] -We were unable to deliver the 300,000 petitions from people all around the world who are concerned with what Google is doing. I talked with the---- one of the folks from the Public Policy Division of Google. We actually talked for a moment about the specific points of the proposal. The gentleman explained, "Hey, this is not---- we actually stand for an open Internet." I did challenge him when I said, "Well, but you're talking about creating a separate tier where those rules don't apply and you also talked about wireless being excluded from these rules and that's the essence of the problem." His answer was, "It's a proposal." He also told me that people can comment at googlepublicpolicy.blogspot.com. I'm gonna say that again. It's googlepublicpolicy.blogspot.com.
The argument over network neutrality. Will business interests kill the future of the Net? Does the FCC know what it's doing?

Verizon's launching its LTE network on Sunday, the FCC is proposing a plan for Net neutrality tomorrow, and Google is about to take over the world EVEN MORE with its e-book venture (we're sure the EU is going to love that).

Happy 15th birthday to Internet Explorer and AT&T says Net neutrality is indeed onerous and it's all for Verizon and Google's proposal (um, duh). The Facebook "dislike" button finally launches, but it's a scam; WiFi-sniffing aerial drones are the new black, and we celebrate 50 years of broadcasting to the world the following: "looking for a good planet to plunder? Call Earth."

OK yeah we talk about Windows 7 and it's lovefest but it's so over. Time to get into the rumour mill again for the Windows 8 release. Why is Microsoft being so quiet about it?!

There's all kinds of vibrating on today's episode, from the server farm I imagine sits in Rafe's bedroom, to the oscillations of molecular computing, to the vibrations of sound from our rant about Drive Safe.ly. And Molly's rant on Net neutrality last Friday also caused some vibrations, and we get to chatting about how much regulation you really need. Oh, and don't forget you have no privacy.
Google seems to be feeling left out of the smartwatch revolution. Also this week, the next-gen Xbox continues to blow Karyne's mind, a $99 Kindle Fire is probably not on the horizon, and Google Play tweaks make co-host Lynn La feel warm and fuzzy inside.
