BOL 1076: You got served, through Twitter Video
An analyst from Morgan Stanley asserts that Apple would sell more iPhones if it offered the phone on more carriers. Really? Wow. We also have an example of a church leader misusing the prefix "cyber." But that's not as crazy as IBM taking on Google. Or is it?
One of our listeners is upset that Pizza Hut is hiring interns to Twitter for them. We try to show the difference between astroturfing on blogs and hiring someone to Twitter legitimately. We also decide that when GREP is outlawed, only criminals will GREP. And Blu-ray's getting cheap. But do we care?
This week, the Palm Pixi threatens the Droid in terms of sheer cuteness, Facebook gets hacked (maybe), and space almost kills us--again!
Happy Monday, everyone! On today's show, we're loving the new RockMelt browser, even though yes, we know, we could do the same thing with extensions. We just don't want to. Also, Apple doesn't care if you make it to work on time, they're not fixing that DST alarm bug. Maybe you're just waking up wring. Also, we go crazy for the Call of Duty: Black Ops ad and I launch the most unfair phone-return plan ever. --Molly
The Apple annonucement was a little mundane. The One More Thing was an iPod Nano with a camera. We were more impressed with the fact that they added an FM radio. But really that's the number two story. The Palm Pixi caught our eye for top billing. Should it catch yours?
It turns out that no matter how technologically savvy we get in the world, we could always be betrayed by the "meat puppets behind the servers." Thanks for that one, Donald. And human error does appear to be what happened to Amazon, and also the Yankees. DSLReports, on the other hand, just plain got hacked. And it would also appear there's no one equipped to help us with our little data leakage issues, since the FBI's own cyber-security agents admit they're not up to the task. But there's even worse news than that: the white iPhone is 0.2mm thicker than the black one. THE HUMANITY! --Molly
Though it may look the same as Sprint's version, the Palm Pixi Plus for Verizon Wireless has a little something extra to offer. Find out what it is in our First Look video.
Palm's adding more apps to a commercialized app store. They call it the app catalog. Which got us thinking about all the different names we could have for app stores. We also get a little excited about the new Sony PS3 slim. Does it herald the resurgence of the PS3? Probably not. Will it help Blu-ray? Maybe a little.
Barnes & Noble just announced three new tablets that could extinguish the Amazon Kindle Fire- tune in to hear why you should care, and how to shop for the best device this holiday season. Also, happy birthday Wilson!
At CES 2010, Palm introduces two new devices, the Palm Pixi Plus and Palm Pre Plus.
