>> Hi, I'm Molly Wood and welcome to the Buzz Report. This week Microsoft is still wooing Yahoo, Politics is in the tube and hackers attack the iPhone, but first it's The Gadget of the Week. The Gadget of the Week is the Nokia N96. That's right. The most feature-packed phone in the known universe now has a successor that packs in just a couple more features. The camera gets a flash, the internal storage goes from about 150-megabytes to 16-gigabytes, plus there's a microSD card slot that can take an additional 2 gigs and you can see from the video that it looks pretty cool.
>> First of all the design is new. We've got a sleeker interface here and you've got a larger screen 2.8 inches. You can slide it up this way and you get your dial pad as usual and you can also slide it down this way and get your media keys here.
>> Hang on a second. Is that Kent German back there? [beep] Wow! If I'd known that Kent wasn't to get so bored hanging out with the GSMA Show in Barcelona, Spain, I would definitely have volunteered to take his place. And now for the news, happy Valentines Day! This week Microsoft is still stocking Yahoo, which is kind of acting like an ex-prom queen with fading looks, just playing hard to get. Earlier this week Yahoo rejected Microsoft's take over attempt, but Microsoft won't go away and basically said that Yahoo isn't gonna do much better. Meanwhile, Yahoo's thinking maybe News Corp might be a better suitor. You know the kind with the cooler car. But, Yahoo honey, can we talk in the bathroom for a second just us girls? Ok honey, I'm not trying to bring you down but, you're not getting any younger. It might be time to settle. I mean, Microsoft can take care of you. It's smart -- smart to ask for a bigger ring, but you should take the ring.
>> Yeah girl, take the ring.
>> In other news today, the 17 year old hacker who was among the first to unlock the iPhone has unlocked the iPhone again. George Hotz cracked the latest iPhone firmware in a marathon 24-hour hacking session, even though other hackers have been trying for weeks to breakthrough the latest Apple firmware update. Do that kid is a prodigy? Apple, are you watching this? You should seriously hire him or you know just unlock the damn phone. ^M00:02:13 [ Sound effects ] ^M00:02:16
>> And now it's time to find out what's clogging the tubes. Politics, still. This week everyone's watching the Yes We Can video by Will.i.am, where all these famous people sing along with the Barack Obama speech. ^M00:02:28 [ Music ] ^M00:02:37
>> But a lot of other people are watching this parroty of that video called John.he.is. ^M00:02:43 [ Music ] ^M00:03:07
>> Hah! Yeah! 10,000 -- that ended sad. Okay then. I'm Molly Wood and this has been the Buzz Report. Thanks for watching. ^M00:03:16 [ Music ]
From Australia to Japan to San Francisco, Apple fanboys and girls are buzzing over the iPhone 3G's release. CNET.com's Kara Tsuboi takes us on a spin around the world to gauge the pandemonium from some of the 70 countries hot to get their hands on the new Apple smartphone.
Molly's back on the Buzz Report desk, and the iPhone, Transformer-themed laptops, and class-action lawsuit defendants are all taking a beating.
The iPhone arrives in London like some sort of attack from American shores. And the lightsaber comes to the Wii. Finally!
Boobs on the iPhone, porn on Vudu, and junk on Chat Roulette. This week's episode proves, once again, that the Internet is for porn.
This week, Molly has some advice for the Japanese government, and imagines a world in which the Mormons run Facebook.
Intel shows a new kind of PC that's easier to lose. Will Dell take on Apple's iPhone, just for yuks? And BlackBerry users get the DTs.
The BlackBerry Storm takes the world by...you know...and the EU gets all up in Apple's business, again.
Here at Buzz Out Loud, we are shamelessly attempting to launch a meme, based on the awesome Twitter ramblings of a guy stoned off his gourd at the dentist. Quick, somebody make a Cafe Press shirt! Also, today's show is rant-central, between the news that They can take our laptops for as long as They want for no reason, Apple's killing of a short-lived iPhone tethering app, and the U.S. Congress' mandate that our nation's schools prop up our dying music industry. Good times.
This week, Steve Jobs and Rob Glaser get into it, cage-match style; some fool sues Microsoft over the Xbox; and Sony screws up. Again. I know--yawn.
Microsoft and Yahoo finally get together, and if Yahoo doesn't see the end coming, that girl is beyond help. Plus: the Apple tablet!
