Netflix CEO calls out Comcast on net neutrality; reading all the privacy policies you agree to in a year would take a month; and the Internet’s biggest dirt bag took his site off the web.

All this and more in episode 17 of Technophilia: The Justin Republic of Awesome.
This week: James uses we7.com to listen to music, and the owner is apparently one of his drinking buddies. Justin lets you know how to make an em (—) or en (–) dashes on your computer, whatever operating system you use. He also thinks you should be watching a show by ze frank. And Dave talks about the social radio app Soundrop, which drives Justin to drink.
