Ep. 1143: Google is sorry... you feel that way? Video
Google is in talks to buy Yelp and it may finally be pushing the line over what's too big. Sure a lot of you thought it was too big already. But now it's just getting ridiculous. Although I didn't like that they lost their court case in France over indexing books. We also touch on the Twitter hijacking and new 3D Blu-ray standards.
iPhone 5 rumors are heating up, but Mango is coming, and it could be the long-term winner! Plus, Netflix is sorry you feel that way and fake Apple stores in China.
Jeff's visited the Bay a few times, but he's still blissfully ignorant about the City's love affair with the naked body. From Bay to Breakers, to the Folsom Street Fair and of course, the Castro district on Halloween, join us as we run down all the places to find public nudity in San Francisco, and why Supervisor Weiner is trying to shut it down.
A woman sues Apple for $1 million over $200 she didn't even spend. The Buzz Report explains.
While its sound didn't blow us away, the iYiYi offers improved bass over that of the iSongBook as well as decent features in an attractively styled package.
Because of some Gmail attacks, Google has said it will remove its filters and possibly pull out of China altogether. There's definitely a lot more going on behind the scenes of this than we know. But we try to get to the heart of the matter as the nation of China negotiates with the nation of Google. We also discuss Facebook's requirement that you scan your hard drive to reactivate a hacked account and look forward to Martians coming this year. Yay for Martians!

Brian Tong joins us live from the E3 show floor to try to explain this cool-looking new Wii U console/controller thing. Even Cooley seems at least slightly impressed. Also, Sony delivers an apology but kind of a snoozefest of a press conference, 25% of U.S. hackers may be informants (including Antuan Goodwin) and reasoned discussion of Apple's iCloud, iOS, and OS X updates. No, really. --Molly
