Galaxy Nexus buzzkills RAZR Video Transcript
Hey, everyone, IÃ¯Â¿Â½m Molly Wood, and welcome to the Buzz Report, the show about the tech news that everyone is talking about. This week, itÃ¯Â¿Â½s raining hot Android phones and everyoneÃ¯Â¿Â½s in line for iPhones, the coolest camera ever, and your dirty, dirty tech users, you. But first, itÃ¯Â¿Â½s the Gadget of the Week. The Gadget of the Week is the Galaxy Nexus with GoogleÃ¯Â¿Â½s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. Rejoice, Androids! The Galaxy Nexus is made by Samsung, itÃ¯Â¿Â½s yet another tablet-sized phone, with a HUGE 4.65-inch screen and HD resolution, the hotness. ItÃ¯Â¿Â½s thin, itÃ¯Â¿Â½s slightly curved to hug your face, itÃ¯Â¿Â½s got a dual-core processor, LTE 4G support, and built-in NFC for swipe-to-pay in the future. It has only a five-megapixel camera on the back, but a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera. And of course, thereÃ¯Â¿Â½s Ice Cream Sandwich with its new apps, refined UI, gesture support, cool new camera and gallery features like filters and editing, and just new newness all over the place. Android home run, pretty much. Except Ã¯Â¿Â½ itÃ¯Â¿Â½s apparently coming to Verizon Ã¯Â¿Â½in NovemberÃ¯Â¿Â½ and the price has yet to be announced. I donÃ¯Â¿Â½t appreciate that level of vagueness, guys. ItÃ¯Â¿Â½s shopping seasons. Give the people something to buy, or at least pre-order, mmkay? And now for the news. The Samsung Nexus pretty much proved to be the biggest buzzkill ever for the OTHER big Android announcement of the week. The Droid RAZR, which is the new skinniest phone in the world, and it has like, Gorilla glass, Kevlar on the back, a stainless steel chassis, and some kind of nanotechnology coating that makes it splash-resistant. Plus, an 8 megapixel camera, a dual-core processor, 1 gig of internal RAM, it can stream Netflix content in HD, itÃ¯Â¿Â½s LTE, itÃ¯Â¿Â½ll get Ice Cream Sandwich in early 2012. I mean. What to DO!? Apparently for millions of people, the answer to that question is Ã¯Â¿Â½ buy an iPhone. Apple announced that iPhone 4S first weekend sales topped four million. There are still lines at Apple stores around the country, and by mid-week, Apple had switched to reservations only for in-store pickup -- you had to reserve it online to pick up the next day. DidnÃ¯Â¿Â½t you guys even notice all those little green Androids falling out of the sky? No? LetÃ¯Â¿Â½s keep the gadget-palooza rolling, though, because frankly, IÃ¯Â¿Â½m pretty much over geeking out on phones and ALL over geeking out on the Lytro camera. Megapixels are out Ã¯Â¿Â½ megaRAYS are in. Lytro unveiled its crazy box-like camera design this week in San Francisco -- the cameras will go on sale in early 2012, starting at 399 bucks, and will totally change photography. TheyÃ¯Â¿Â½ll record all the available light in an image and create a complete 3D map of whatever you took a picture of, and then YOU can decide later where you want the focus of the picture to be. ItÃ¯Â¿Â½s. Insane. You will throw your iPhone 4S out the window when you see this. Well, ok. You know what I mean. Gadget PORN! In non-gadget related news this week, mobile carriers agreed to new measures to prevent cell phone Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½bill shock.Ã¯Â¿Â½ YouÃ¯Â¿Â½ll get texts and other alerts when youÃ¯Â¿Â½re about to rack up insane charges for things you thought were normal activities. After agreeing to the new measures, representatives for the carriers were heard to mutter, Ã¯Â¿Â½whereÃ¯Â¿Â½s the fucking fun in that?Ã¯Â¿Â½ And now for a new segment here on the Buzz Report Ã¯Â¿Â½ You People Are Dirty Research in the UK found that 1 in 6 mobile phones were tainted with E. Coli bacteria Ã¯Â¿Â½ which is typically found in fecal matter. Yep. You got poop on your phone. I guess the good news is that 5 out of 6 of you are not filthy pigs? Let me break it down for you: stop doing your business while using your phone. And for godÃ¯Â¿Â½s sake, wash your hands! Speaking of how youÃ¯Â¿Â½re all dirty, letÃ¯Â¿Â½s have a look at whatÃ¯Â¿Â½s Clogging the Tubes. ItÃ¯Â¿Â½s sh*t that Siri says. America is obsessed with Siri, the voice assistant on iPhone 4S, and apparently obsessed with asking her dirty questions. It was, in retrospect, a blog waiting to happen. http://shitthatsirisays.tumblr.com/ I wish IÃ¯Â¿Â½d been on the team that got to think of all the questions people would ask, and even better Ã¯Â¿Â½ write the answers. Because, yeah. http://shitthatsirisays.tumblr.com/post/11516676085 Nailed it. And thatÃ¯Â¿Â½s the Buzz Report for this week, everyone. IÃ¯Â¿Â½m Molly Wood and thanks for
