Ep. 98: Microsoft is tickled Pink Video
On our 1200th episode, we give you special, unprecedented access inside the inner workings of the show. Or, put more accurately, we screw it up a lot. In the news, what little there is post-iPad hangover, a federal appeals court ruled that the FCC lacks the authority to regulate ISPs, Microsoft's Pink project is a collection of cute words coming out April 12, and it's raining tablets.
Microsoft shows "Pink" (sort of); MMS disaster, er, feature about to launch on iPhone; Wii gets a price cut; Archos' new Windows 7 tablet looks great--too bad nobody will notice; and MIT has a synthetic eyeball on the way that amazes us. Oh yeah...and about that cuddle party...
It's been a busy week thanks to Apple and Microsoft. First, we raced down to Cupertino, Calif., to watch Apple CEO Steve Jobs preview iPhone OS 4.0, and then we zipped back up to San Francisco to catch Microsoft as it took the wraps off Project Pink and unveiled the Kin One and Kin Two. Of course, after all that, we had more questions than answers, so we try to tackle some of those issues in this week's episode of Dialed In. Plus, we take a look at the latest rumors and reviews and give Kent a warm send-off as he goes on a well-deserved break.

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
