Episode Description 
OK, young whipper snapper, let grand-dad tell you a story: Once there was a social networking website called MySpace. Everybody used it. It was the original Internet time suck. It had parents worried and kids listening to Rock and Roll at all hours of the night -- way back in 2003. Then it died a slow and painful death. But guess what? It's back. And Justin Timberlake, who co-owns MySpace with digital ad company Specific Media, wants it to be cool again.
