Unfortunately, halfway through the show we find out that Macho Man Randy Savage passed away today, so RIP to one of our favorite WWF athlete. To get us back in good spirits for the rest of the episode, Jeff and Peter make a Twitter wager, and the loser has to...well, you'll have to listen to find out what's going to happen when Peter gets to 4,000.

Microsoft is apparently willing to pay Rupert Murdoch to block Google from indexing any of his Web sites. Are we headed toward a world where the search engine you use determines what news you get? Probably not. We explain why Murdoch may be thinking in an old fashioned limited way rather than in the current infinite Internet way. We also declare the patent office baroque. And ask it to lose weight.
