  1. Great show, guys! I’m a latecomer to the DrillDown/DrillBits, but I’m really DIGGing it.

    Hi to Andy, Reg, and Muhammad!

  2. Another great one! Congrats on the 1000 club (give or take a couple, here or there 😉

    Keep up the good work guys!

  3. just to add to your gene simmons talk, read how jay-z and jermaine dupri are doing almost the same thing, protesting itunes, who i think are helping the record industry by making it easier for fans to access music they like, by selling them the singles they want; he actually is dumb enough to write, “We let the consumer have too much of what they want, too soon, and we hurt ourselves.”:
    these dinosaurs are trying to walk up a water slide.
