Ep. 515: Where we look to our hands for inspiration Video
Meme expert memeMolly joins us on the show today to talk about the latest videos and pictures spreading around the Web, and the nature of memes themselves.
Today's story rundown includes the Boy Scouts of America staying culturally relevant with a new robotics merit badge, Cisco says goodbye to Flip mobile camcorders, a crowdsourced fundraiser pokes fun at M. Night Shymalan's dwindling film career, and Germany says "no" to Google Street View.
Facebook recently rolled out privacy changes and new data-sharing features. As usually happens when Facebook makes a privacy change, there was a swift and mighty backlash. Didn't Facebook learn from Beacon? To discuss Facebook's latest moves, Rafe Needleman is joined by CNET's Declan McCullagh and by Kara Swisher from All Things Digital.

Goodbyes are never easy, but it ain't so bad when you're leaving for a three-week holiday vacation to Huntington Beach, Calif.

To everyone's disappointment, he'll back back in January 2010 for one episode, and then the dudes are off to CES for four shows from the CNET stage!
We think, because of the magic of search-engine optimization, that this episode is about to become our highest-rated ever. P.S. Attention, visitors from Google: this is not the Facebook login page. Sorry about that. In other news today, we tear down Google Buzz's privacy options, Bill Gates can barely be bothered to diss the iPad, and some guy plans to be pooping in a box for 30 days. Sometimes we hate the Internet. --Molly
Today on Buzz Out Loud, fun kills and companies kill fun. Apple kills all the good boob stuff in the App Store, Google's building its Daemon-Skynet empire by getting into the power business, and Italy thinks 3D glasses can give you pink-eye. Also, Microsoft and Yahoo finally get that search deal done, about a thousand episodes after anyone cares. And Helen calls again and breaks Molly. --Molly
Today's episode of The 404 Podcast is all about techy gift recommendations for Father's Day, OpenBook exposing more Facebook privacy issues, and an amazing video of a Japanese beatboxer performing the Super Mario theme song.
