Tank fly boss walk jam nitty gritty you're listening to the boy from the big bad city

Now there’s a lyric you don’t hear every day. But it’s been a tough week. Just be good to me, OK?
It seems I was wrong yesterday in thinking I wouldn’t get an initial NBN story out the gate; a quick bit of analysis later and you get the following at PC Authority:
Rudd’s New NBN: Five upsides, five downsides: “Kevin Rudd’s announcement yesterday that, in effect, the winner of the NBN process was nobody was something of a jaw-dropping moment. Should broadband users be overjoyed by the NBN, or cautiously wary?”
Meanwhile, at CNET.com.au, I was getting really busy:
Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG10EXBK HD Dual Camera: “Sanyo’s entry-level portable camcorder is very portable indeed, but suffers with some design and implementation flaws.”
Asus SDRW-08D1S-U External DVD-RW Drive: “External DVD writers are never going to be exciting, but at least Asus’ effort looks pretty.”
Samsung SyncMaster 2333SW 23-inch LCD Monitor: “Samsung’s attractive “cream” monitor has a lot of upside, once you get the annoying base unit snapped on.”
