This week, Ed is flying back from Thailand (or possibly tweeting from the airport, after a dreamy Dreamliner trip), while Sarah and Greg dish on Micron (could the field now be open to Intel after China's interest), Adobe Flash (to update or not update), and Reddit (get you popcorn, and watch the implosion).
