As promised, we recorded the pilot of the new TR Out Loud video series, which is called "TechRepublic's Hot 5." The pilot turned out so well, I decided to publish it so that you all can enjoy it too! In this episode, I count down the hot 5 discussions of the week. If you're not a fan of video, you can choose to just listen to the audio file.

Hot 5 discussion threads:

  1. What can private corporations do to employees? Just about everything (Toni Bowers)
  2. Job snapshot: Programmer (Toni Bowers)
  3. Office poll: Which Office 2007 application would you love to downgrade to 2003? (Susan Harkins)
  4. American Express password policy takes the cake (Chad Perrin)
  5. Google Voice: Alive and well thanks to HTML5 (Michael Kassner)

TR Member contributions = swag We are collecting TR member submissions — photos, original video clips, and audio files — so that we can assemble them in a monthly community video. Our e-mail address is trol at techrepublic.com. If we don't receive enough submissions, that means there won't be a video for that particular month. However, for those of you who do contribute, we'll send you some free TR swag!
