A new technology from Zyxio allows you to control your PC by breathing. Obviously this is good for accessibility, but it could also mean good and bad news for gamers. We'll discuss. We also rundown the latest news from CES, including the Intel keynote. And we talk with the winner of the Apps for Innovation contest about his Web site that makes it easy for you to find out what the government is about to do to you and gives you a chance to make a comment.

Hey Buzz Crew,


I was listening to Yesterday’s podcast (Thursday at CES) and Leo was talking about how MS is a “Me Too” company. Then you all went on to talk about Ford Sync and how awesome it was. None of you pointed out who Ford Sync was by… It’s by the “Me Too” company Microsoft. Just thought I’d point that out.


Rock on,

Josh from Indiana




Hey Buzzos

Is it just me or was Tom Merrit flipping me off at 0:08 in his First Look video at the Samsung E-Reader from CES? Is he sending us some sort of subliminal message about Samsung or E-Readers? Why can’t he just use his pointer finger to point at it? I mean, it is called a POINTER finger.
