TROLOV (TR Out Loud on Video) is back in full swing this week, highlighting the most active discussions and members on the site. You'll also get to see and hear the photos and voice messages that were sent in from the TR community. If you're not a fan of video (sorry about the Flash, Jaqui), you can choose to just listen to the audio file.Notes: Top discussion threads:
- Sanity check: The five reasons I wouldn't use an iPhone are down to one
- Is $38,000 too much to pay for an iPhone?
- More people want less responsibility in their jobs
- When your network admin hijacks your system
- To all my GREAT TR peers - you guys are GREAT!
