>> What if aliens secretly owned Google? I think it would mean that the mission to organize the world's information is some sort of pun in their secret alien language; like to serve man. So in alien organize means eat and the world's information means jam. I think Google is run by a bunch of jam sucking aliens. Lock your cupboard. ^M00:00:29 [ Music sound effects ] ^M00:00:31
Tom Merritt wonders what the world would look like if Google acquired Apple.
We all know that invading space aliens have one primary objective, and that is to impregnate human kind. That and possibly to collect today's assortment of handy gadgets for use on their own planet. Meanwhile, there we'll be, doing their alien chores and cooking their alien dinners for them with no ability to break from their alien spell. Aren't we just a sad bunch of humanoid life forms?
AT&T continues to perfect the art of apologizing without actually apologizing, wherein Goatse blames them right back. Some sporadic updates from E3 and the Microsoft press conference (see http://cnet.com/E3 for more), and we discuss whether the Internet has killed yet another industry: libel lawsuits. Oh, and a Japanese rocket just brought some aliens back from outer space. Awesome. --Molly
Alien invasion and artificial hearts.
Can you tell Brian Tong is back on the show? Actually, we're legitimately wondering whether a home-brew electroshock like battery licking could produce video game skill improvements like DARPA is seeing with their electroshock research.

This week we investigate the logic behind the rumor that Google is trying to invade the bike messenger's turf with a new "same-day" delivery service. Wait, what does that have to do with Google? Also, Scott Forstall probably has bad manners, and Nokia might, too.
See, the problem with alien communication fragmentation is that the aliens will have a hard time finding us. The real question, though, is whether that's a good thing or a bad thing. Also, we ponder whether we need a new rule about how no, you cannot turn off the Internet because of your inter-border protest issues ... EGYPT. Plus, LinkedIn goes IPO, Amazon is killing it, and the world is introduced to the CataPot. --Molly
Alien coverage week continues on Buzz Out Loud, with testimony from U.S. Air Force pilots that aliens want us to disarm our nukes. For world peace, or to make sure we don't have any guns when they get here? But in actual news, a study finds that texting-while-driving bans don't reduce crashes and might even increase them. Plus, NAB goes even crazier. --Molly
This week, Mailbag gets a "treat" in the mail, corrects Tom Merritt's Top 5, and wonders about crazy fish men.
