The rumors about the Apple Tablet are getting crazy and special guest Cali Lewis nails it when she calls it a unicorn. We also get the first look at the Google OS, and nobody is very excited about Microsoft Office 2010. Except the one person who never uses it: me. And we get some of the inside scoop behind the FAA outage.

Hey Buzz Crew,

Chris the former SNOWMAN HUNTER (and secret robot resister) here to say I too was creeped out by Aida, the backseat driving robot on Episode 1108. A passenger in my car that scolds and nags and guilt-trips? What a clanking piece of Hell in the car pool lane. But then it hit me. Give it a thin British accent, paint it gold and call it C-3P0… and I’d buy one tomorrow.

Love the show… until we’re all turned into a warm slurry by the coming robot hoards.

Chris




Hi Buzz Crew,


Watching episode 1109.


Tom the circle on you iPhone next to the bars as far as im aware means you have cell data. the bars are the signal strength from the mast. the circle is cell data, and E is Edge, 3G is 3G.


Over here in the UK on O2 we have pretty good 3G coverage and every time iv used my iPhone to load a page – it loads, what ever i’m on (cell,edge,3g), yes on cell it takes a bit longer – but it loads, sounds like AT&T should give up and go do something else


Love the show guys.


Thanks

Carl

Hey Buzz Crew,


Xerox has setup http://www.letssaythanks.com/Home1280.html to have people sign up to send free printed postcards to troops overseas. You select one of the designs, add a message, your name and hometown and they send it for free to a random troop.


I thought this was a neat idea from Xerox and I’m hoping that you’ll put the link in your shownotes.

Thanks and “Love the show.”

Hutch from Grand Rapids
