DB696 – Man sues over repeated anal probes, Bye bye Blockbuster, eBay Lies, and Kittens as Fishbait?

It be Friday…

After being mucked about yesterday, Leigh is now the proud Daddy of a new Skype PC – called Hilly – courtesy of Marty from the WI. Today is a mark in show history, as from today we are no longer using any piece of equipment or cable that we started the show with back in 2009. Everything is new – specifically purchased for the show.

Blockbuster Closing All Of Its Remaining Retail Stores – end of an era. Blockbuster plans to end all domestic retail activity, as well as its by-mail movie distribution, by early 2014, the home movie provider’s parent company, DISH Network, announced Wednesday in a press release.

UK commissioner creates ‘pensions’ for police dogs. Paddy Tipping says the idea for a canine pension fund came about because officers were picking up the costs for retired police dogs. Handlers normally take dogs home upon retirement.

A New Mexico man has filed a lawsuit claiming police subjected him to repeated anal probes and enemas after a routine traffic stop because they suspected he was hiding drugs.

DB639 – Zombies, Manscaping issues, and Spot Squad App pays you to spot illegally parked cars

It be Wednesday…

We start the day with a more-than-one-word-weather and quotes from various books. Leigh moves on to the in-depth subject of manscaping and how bored he is with it.

We talk about bitmessage for a little while. A new alternative to email with some advantages, but several drawbacks.

Leigh talks about his ideas for his new studio, with webcams and many other things.

A man has hit another man with his own prosthetic leg, is this considered kicking or now?

An app exists that pays you to spot illegally parked cars, Leigh is furious, as is the rest of our panel, who call it every name imaginable while keeping the programme PG13 rated.

Zombie news! In Nottingham, there were no confirmed zombie sightings.
