Leo LaPorte sits in today, and the next thing you know, the four of us decided to write a novel together. On Twitter. Yeah, we're not allowed to hang out together anymore. In other news, will Google end up buying the 700MHz spectrum (the auction starts tomorrow) or are they just throwing their money around to get the rules changed in their favor? Best guess: both.

What's a more serious threat to national security than BitTorrent? Well, it's either Microsoft or pants, depending on whom you believe (I suggest you believe neither). Also, HD DVD takes the low road -- the low price road, that is -- and Google is for sure, for realsies, no foolin' going to start filtering copyrighted content off of YouTube any day now. For serious this time.

And the U.S. has relaxed its grip on the Internet. Good thing? Bad thing? Irrelevant thing? Or over-hyped thing like an Apple tablet?

AT&T threatens that the Internet is going to run out by 2010, and apparently, it's because everyone's watching Gossip Girl online. Luckily, The CW has caught on to the danger and is pulling Gossip Girl offline so the hordes won't keep watching it on their Web site. Because that would be just plain dangerous. Also, Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony are all number one! Just ask them!

Deletions happen, people. Would you rather look out for crazy employees (like the one who deleted $2.5 million worth of architectural records because she thought she might get fired) and careless ISPs (like Charter, which accidentally wiped out 14,000 email accounts), or just back up and settle down? I bet a Drobo's looking pretty good right now, eh?

Also, analysts (and Steve Jobs and AT&T's CEO) say a 3G iPhone is coming "soon," which is probably good news for all the BlackBerry owners suffering yet another unexplained critical outage.

Rounding down to zero? Don't be ridiculous. Forcing ISPs to monitor and filter Internet traffic in order to guarantee that music artists continue to make money, so that the ISPs feel some sort of moral obligation to keep U2 in fancy leather pants. It sounds illogical when you put it that way, right? We thought so.

As AT&T tries to accuse Google of violating net neutrality, Molly wonders if they really just want to be seen as a villain. Also while you should never call anything unhackable, the netbooks being given to students in Australia are pretty tight. Physical-layer BIOS protection is unusual in an educational situation like that. And we also get a little frustrated at people who don't listen. So please. Listen. Thanks.
