360 was good. I liked all the talk about the hurricane. Hopefully it will miss NYC. I'm guessing Anderson is probably worried about his Long Island home.

Found 360 far more practical tonite than on recent days.
Chad Meyers updates on Hurricane Irene moving up the East Coast has us all who live in the tri-state, a bit on edge.
Hopefully she will be diverted out to sea, but that is a long shot.
AC seemed a bit worried about the direction of the storm. Possibly planning a trip to somewhere?
The advertisement for Google was one of his better ones, showing all the dangerous places he has been using up to date technology.
Makes you wonder why he'd prefer to host a talkfest, far less challenging.

Irene sounds like it will be quite a monster storm unless something suddenly changes. The segments on the storms potential were very interesting, but AC's probably right about people in NY not really being ready or properly prepared for it. I saw a documentary about the 1930's storm on Long Island and it was pretty devastating. An earthquake on the East Coast and now this--I hope everyone gets through this ok.

Has anyone tried to watch 360 from their iPad or Laptop? I tried it last night and at first it said that since my cable provider wasn't among those listed it wouldn't work, but low and behold there was Anderson Cooper LIVE on my laptop. It was interesting to watch, now all I need to do is figure out how to make it work on my Android.

The models Chad was showing last night of what might occur in lower Manhattan if Irene hits just right is truly scary. An today I heard that if she hits the barrier island of LI it will destroy the dunes that have been put into place to protect it. Fingers crossed that no one gets hit too hard.
