Let's Hear It For The Nerds
These videos are for my readers who are truly nerds. Uncle Walt, (Walt Mossberg, a technology columnist for the Wall Street Journal) spoke at a beet.tv conference about the Web becoming a new video medium. He also slammed the USA's lack of guidelines for what can be called "broadband." He sighted the fact that DSL companies claim their 758Kb/sec DSL speed is broadband. Other countries laugh. Walt is an Apple fan, he works for a decent paper, and he is a loud voice for the consumer. He is "Uncle Walt" because the bloggers have adopted him as such due to his ability to act as a loud voice for the technology consumer. If you were paying attention, he dropped that the 3G iPhone is going to be here really soon (60 days).
