Among other things, October is National Bake & Decorate month but that's not what it sounds like on the recording... hence the title.
Lots of content and lots of extra links for you on this show. Joe is back and try as we might to avoid any Apple news this week they apparently have "a little more to show" us so we must at least make the announcement. We also talk about Microsoft, AT&T, the FCC, the FTC, ridiculous movie computers, and we cross one off of our deathwatch list.
Although we joke a little in our opening about all the different observances during the month of October, there are several on very important issues. Check out the links below for more information.
Breast cancer awareness month
Rett syndrome awareness month
AIDS awareness month (aids.gov)
Bullying prevention month (another resource)
Domestic violence awareness month
Dyslexia awareness month
