Ep. 1267: Fix your brain! Video
This flashback was chosen based on the description in the Buzz Out Loud wiki... "The Best Molly/MerritRant in Forever or Just In a Long Time." That's good enough for me!
Outtakes from episode 1267.
In buzz this week, there's a possible corroboration of a Verizon iPhone; Twitter wants to make money for real this time; and a Molly Rant in video form.
Warning: contains strong language (that will be bleeped by the time you hear this), but we frankly couldn't help ourselves when we saw the stuff the RIAA and MPAA want to do to your computers, border guards, the FBI, and Homeland Security. It ain't good. Also, Twitter makes developers mad again, and we are definitely not number 1 in broadband. And it hurts. --Molly
Buzz Out Loud: the podcast that carries you through your formative years and even into college. We've got a great email about it, in fact. Also, we were totally right about the e-book price war--Kindle is now down to $189. Also, Apple will now collect your precise geographic information and share it with its partners. You can't opt out or anything, but hey, at least they let you know. Also: a Molly rant. Like, a real one. It's at the end. Enjoy!
Brian Cooley joins us today for an epic rant about re-installing Windows yet again. Also, great topics from listeners, including updating Android phones, using an iMac as a TV, and using solar power on laptops.
"Hey, Buzz Crew ..." Google seems to be building out a version of Chrome OS for tablets, which we're calling their "double rainbow" strategy: it breaks your brain. Plus, what Epsilon knew about their social phishing vulnerabilities, and when they knew it. Samsung cuts tablet pricing again, why we're never using Pandora again until we get an email from Tim Westergren, and a seriously old-school hacker story. --Molly
A new single-serving Tumblr page makes New Yorkers hate their apartments, a San Franciscan put his van on Airbnb, a new font lets dyslexia sufferers read, and Bang With Friends saddles up for life on the run.
The EU is standing up for your right to be lonely and off the grid. And we're glad they are. Plus, Google lays down the smack on Facebook--no importing without reciprocity, suckaz! And in other tech beefs, Consumer Reports goes after Gamespot's claims that the Kinect can't see darker-skinned players. Plus, apple pie sparks an Internet war. --Molly
Although we dinged its predecessor because of its inflated price tag, the Samsung S2 Portable hard drive earns high marks and our recommendation for being reasonably priced, having fast file-transfer speed, and for having a generous three-year warranty.
