On this date, Molly Wood was born! As were some other world-changing people.
The LG Shine II isn't a top-notch performer, but its sturdy metal build and broad feature set will attract some people.
Don't be so juvenile, people. This is scientific research based on DNA data we're talking here. Sheesh.
AT&T makes major changes to its data plan--as in, it's not unlimited anymore. Sorry, iPad people. But hey, at least it means the new iPhone is coming!
IBM has created what they're benignly calling "cognitive semiconductors," which are computers that can actually learn, think, and creatively process information. So, that sounds like a good idea, right? I mean, seriously, great work, IBM, but when one of your big backers is DARPA, you can't fool us. We know Skynet is upon us. Also, don't get caught with your patents down!
Turns out the Web is dead. Nope, sorry, Chris Anderson from Wired said so, and that's just the way it is. Nevertheless, we discuss. Also, the Chrome OS is about to hit the tablet world like a meteor, you're only getting half the broadband you're paying for, and Microsoft Flight Simulator is back! Darren and Rafe are so excited! Molly and Jason are also here!
Last month, Craig Venter announced that he had modified a living organism by replacing its DNA with a synthetically-created genome.

Facebook rolls out its new privacy changes live during our show! How nice of them. In a nutshell, near as we can tell, everything is going to be simpler and Facebook is really sorry that they really mean it about the whole privacy thing. And we get that, but we need some time to get over it, you know? Also, the DOJ may be looking into Apple's iTunes monopoly and we have a big discussion about the future of American space shuttle. Get your emails ready now.
