Conan O'Brien once had a recurring segment on Late Night called "Guests We Won't Have Back," during which he would look back at guests (who were fake) that he regretted having on the show.

We've been a little while since our last podcast, but we're back, and just in time, too. After last week's Apple non-announcements, we got some blockbuster business news: RIM and NTP finally settled? AT&T buying BellSouth (and thus the controlling stake of Cingular) for 67 billion dollars? Micro...

What did you think of Steve's dog and pony show yesterday? Check back tomorrow for the poll results.

The new iPod Hi-Fi looks really cool, but who has $350US
sitting around doing nothing? Why now whip up your own solution from the parts you probably have sitting around your

Buy hacking an iPod speaker unit together with an old pair of Appl...
