On this week's show, BOL special counsel Gil Cabrera joins us to break down the mobile apps privacy protections (meh), the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights (unenforceable without Congress), and the "Do Not Track" button (weak). He's kind of a buzz kill. Also, poor little T-Mobile, Microsoft's most unprofessional legal lawyer ever, and Nilay Patel buzz-kills Pinterest, big time. Plus, "Into It/Not Into It" returns!
When backed into a corner, the FCC acts less like a bear and more like a kitten ... which is probably a good thing for the Internet overall. Facebook takes another lump, the HTC Evo shows up for pre-order at The Shack at all places, and Google Chrome is faster than a potato. Well, French fries, to be really accurate.
This week, Donald and Jasmine discuss a monumental smackdown between the Beats Solo by Dr. Dre and the Bose On-Ear Headphones. OK, maybe not quite monumental, but certainly interesting. Of course, if you think we're going to reveal the outcome without making you suffer through all three judges' rantings on the matter, you're sorely mistaken. Also on tap for this week: Cowon trots out a new video player, V-Moda makes an appearance with some new iPhone-friendly headphones, and Real takes a huge, industry-changing beating from the MPAAholes. Plus, what exactly do the MP3 Insiders think about keeping all our media in the cloud? Tune in to find out.>

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.
