New technology allows organic brain cells to control robots leading us to conclude that eventually we'll all be brains in a data center. Also Apple announces a bunch of updates to their computer line as well as a new magic mouse. And the PS3 is now the King of the console hill. Who saw that coming?

Hey buzz crew,

Before this app came out (wolfram) there was a mobile iPhone formatted wolfram alpha site that was amazing! I saved it to my home screen but when I clicked on it today, it led me to a add for the app. **sigh** :(

Yours truly,

Cameron Tora



Love the show, but you should clarify the Google Voicemail story. Users choose to 'share' those messages – users shared them. Google is now protecting people from their own stupidity which is cool, but please blame stupid people not Google!


thanks,

Natron from Madison, WI
