Buzz Report: Cracking under pressure Video
Dish launches the "Hopper," with the first live kangaroo ever on stage at CES; Steve Ballmer explains why this is Microsoft's last CES keynote; and Justin Timberlake takes the stage at Panasonic's press event to announce MySpace TV.
Skype releases an updated app for Android that supports video chatting, hackers shut down al-Qaeda's online distribution of videos and statements, and Justin Timberlake takes an ownership stake in Specific Media as it buys MySpace from News Corp.
MySpace has been sold to Specific Media for a whopping $35 million and Justin Timberlake is reported to be one of the investors. Can Justin bring the sexy back to MySpace? Google's Google+ social media site opens and closes the invites within one day, and Antuan Goodwin might be to blame. And Donald Bell joins us to give his two cents on the HP TouchPad. It's show 1501... Join us tomorrow as we go back in time for show 1500!
This week the air conditioning is out in the Buzz studio, but cloned dogs, corporate Firefox, and space geeks are even hotter.
Looks like the snakes brought down your normal Buzz Report host--and that makes this week's show a whole new ball game.
Microsoft tries to poke the European antitrust bear and point them in the direction of Google--ok, guys. Just, you know, beware of karma. Also, Google cracks down on the Android chaos (and hopefully the crapware, too), the +1 button points to, yet again, the all-consuming importance of recommendations, and Samsung did not--I repeat, did NOT--install keylogger software on its laptops. Plus, introducing our new app, Smart Fart. (Sigh.) --Molly
Buzz Report: The state of the MMORPG YouTube censored, Sony and Universal locking down music even more than usual, and Microsoft Vista is a mess. The state of the tech world is hilarious, as usual.
This week on the Buzz Report, the institution of human-robot marriage is threatened...by clones.
On today's Buzz Out Loud, why "your stupid face" works to get you to install malicious software, why eBay just flat out isn't for small sellers anymore, and why you shouldn't trust your IT guy...or at least not one in three of them. Also, EA releases Creature Creator, people create porny creatures, and EA attempts to crack down. Something about this picture just doesn't add up. Like, how novelty-sized bosoms can even exist on the side of a cow.
