  • Newsware: Dragging Journalists Into the 21st Century Since [Some Earlier Time]

    Actual, out-in-the-field reporters have the benefit of breathing fresh air every day.

    Routers with BitTorrent support aren’t exactly new, but any device that makes watching “The Shield” easier is alright in my book.
