PS3 media server is nice for streaming from my HDD but doesn't have the easy web content accessibility that Playon has." Link to Original Source top

Is there a decent tool that allows collaborative screen sharing accompanied by voice/video? His computer will be running Win 7 and mine will be on whatever is required, preferably linux." top

For example, where are all the swimsuit pics of Sarah Palin when she was in beauty contests? How does the Palin organization or any other celebrity, or anyone else for that matter, manage to control availability of images on the web? If such control is possible, how do sex videos of celebrities manage to fall outside that control, or do they?"
men who drive pickup trucks insist on backing them into parking spaces? What is the point? The bigger the pickup, the more likely it will be backed into a parking space. If it has a trailer hitch, it will be backed up so the hitch hangs over a sidewalk, just waiting to knee-cap someone walking by.
