Ep. 1226: Where the faces don't match the voices Video
In the Soviet Union oil leaks get nuked. That's not a Yakov Smirnoff joke, it's apparently history. So we discuss whether we should do that in the Gulf of Mexico. But Steve in the chat room points out it might summon Cthullu. We also discuss the impending release of Office 2010, and the appearance of a second lost Apple iPhone 4G prototype. Those people can't keep anything in the lab anymore can they?
The Sony NWZ-S610 Walkman doesn't bring anything striking or new to the table, but that doesn't change the fact that it's a quality MP3 player with nice extras and a killer battery life. Plus, Sony got rid of SonicStage--the best news ever.
Amazon's Android blitz continues with the launch of the Cloud Player service and a deal to preinstall its App Store onto phones.

All of that and more on this week's episode of Android Atlas Weekly with Justin Eckhouse and Antuan Goodwin.
Nissan's crossover doesn't really have anything to do with its namesake.
The LG Chocolate is sexy without a doubt but it doesn't do anything other phones can't.
eMachines ER1402-05 is a strong living-room Nettop among others like it, but it doesn't compete well in the larger picture of living-room entertainment devices like game consoles, media streamers, and video service-equipped Blu-ray players. It's worth a look if you need a desktop of this particular type, but keep shopping if you need a connected living-room media device.
The rugged Nikon Coolpix S30 is a simple, inexpensive point-and-shoot to keep poolside, and doesn't try to be anything more.
The Nyko Zero Wireless Controller makes for a decent secondary or backup controller, but it doesn't fully match the comfort and performance of the DualShock 3.
It's a hard life being most excellent at most video games, but Johnathan Wendel, aka Fatal1ty, doesn't shy away from the challenge. So what happens in a typical day of a professional video game player? That's what we really wanted to know, too, so Irina invades Fatal1ty's hotel room to find out.
When a rogue wave capsizes a luxury cruise ship in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, a small group of survivors find themselves unlikely allies in a battle for their lives. Preferring to test the odds alone, career gambler John Dylan (Josh Lucas) ignores captain's orders (Andre Braugher) to wait below for possible rescue and sets out to find his own way to safety. What begins as a solo mission soon draws others as Dylan is followed by a desperate father (Kurt Russell) searching for his daughter (Emmy Rossum) and her fianc? (Mike Vogel), a young couple who hours before couldn't summon the courage to tell him they were engaged and now face much graver challenges. Along the way they are joined by a single mother (Jacinda Barrett) and her wise-beyond-his-years son (Jimmy Bennett), an anxious stowaway (Mia Maestro), and a despondent fellow passenger (Richard Dreyfuss) who boarded the ship not sure he wanted to live but now knows he doesn't want to die. Determined to fight their way to the surface, the group sets off through the disorienting maze of twisted steel in the upside-down wreckage. As the unstable vessel rapidly fills with water, they all must draw on skills and strengths they didn't even know they possessed, fighting against time for their own survival and for each other.
