March Madness!

March Madness!!!!

Hey Everyone! John here bringing you yet another ill-conceived, half thought out view, of the world of sports and everything else “unique”. Its March and that means March Madness! Men’s Basketball has dominated this month for eons, however, this year’s tournament could see something that has never happened before; a three-peat Champion. I’m not talking about basketball; I’m talking about the Consumerist’s yearly Worst Company in America.

In the previous two years, Electronic Arts has taken home the Golden Poo for the worst company in America decimating opponents like Sallie Mae and Bank of America. The top 32 worst companies are selected by the readers and consumers through Consumerist. To avoid vague nominations, Consumerist asks that all nominations be accompanied by a legitimate reason to why that company is the worst rather than a quick “I hate the Jerks!!”.

d

This year’s contest includes consumer favorites such as Ebay/Paypal, Time Warner Cable, EA, Walmart and Live Nation/ Ticketmaster. My money is on EA pulling out yet another convincing win throughout the Tournament.  Voting starts today! Make sure to stop by their website at Consumerist.com or better yet, just click on the link!

Patent Troll’s Lawsuit Goes After Adam Carolla and Podcasts

Patent Troll’s Lawsuit Goes After Adam Carolla and Podcasts

A legal battle is beginning against Adam Carolla through Patent Troll Personal Audio, a Texas-based company claiming to have invented podcasting technology. Personal Audio claims to have owned the patented used for the delivery of media over the internet. ABC and NBC as well as Adam Carolla have been named as defendants in the case.

 

In this legal battle for Personal Audio, Non-Profits as well as small digital media companies lacking the financial backing have been the initial targets. Months ago, many podcasters were contacted by the company demanding an undisclosed “licensing fee” for the use of the technology. None of the podcasters have were contacted have acknowledge any requests.

 

This legal battle will determine how future use of media is used on the internet. A legal victory for Personal Audio could see the end of Podcasting and digital streaming as we know it vanish.  If you are a fan of podcasting, or love digital media in any form, please help Adam Carolla in his fight against Personal Audio. Please join Pals Podcast and Adam Carolla by donating to the cause by visiting FundAnything.com. Every dollar goes to the fight against this Patent Troll. Stand up with us today!
