March 16, 2007: Stardust now just dust, Viacom slaps Google and YouTube, digital TV transition details, Slacker at SXSW, Microsoft hears Tellme, and a fingerprint-activated garage door opener.
Viacom may have found a smoking gun in their billion-dollar case against YouTube, but on the other hand, we speculate YouTube may have a smokinger gun. Also the FTC wants you disclose all that money you've been paid to blog about cleaning products. Or whatever. Even if you just posted on Facebook. You need to make yourself aware of these rules.
We'll recap the newest features under the hood of the iPhone 4S. Apple's voice control feature looks pretty impressive and we all know the 4S looks just like an iPhone 4. But it's anything but an iPhone 4.
Google launches Latitude for iPhone, T-Mobile says a 4G tablet is on the way in 2011, and Twitter and YouTube release their top trends of 2010.
Turns out, according to some developers, that the only way to get your hands on a prereleased iPad is to build it a special sealed bunker of its very own, with darkened windows and a chain so it can't get up and walk away on you. People, we are NOT making this up. Also, we dish the dish on Viacom vs. YouTube; get a good, long look at Windows Phone 7; and yeah, Molly's mad about the Android 2.1 delay. No surprise.
Well, ok, 3D might not make you go blind, but we think the issue warrants further study. At least, Molly and Rafe think it warrants further study. Tom's just baiting us. Also, AT&T gets a Windows Phone 7 victory, Warner is still keeping DVDs on life support, and PDFs are just plain dangerous. Also, our hearts go out to Tesla Motors today after a tragic plane crash in Palo Alto. --Molly
Some companies get social media, and some don't. What kind do you work for? Today, we're discussing the incredible success of the Old Spice YouTube campaign compared to Apple's top-down over-control of communication around the iPhone 4 antenna problems. Guests are authors Brian Solis of FutureWorks, and Rick Bakas of the St. Supery winery.
We stayed on the rails pretty well in this episode, but there's a whole long thing about cake toward the end that the chat room dubbed "nerd freestyle" and, well, we love that. In other news, new TiVo underwhelms a bit (other than the remote) and Viacom goes all anti-Internet with Daily Show and Colbert. That's the cake part.
