We cover Amazon's capitulation to another publisher, and Google's book deal comes under assault from the Department of Justice. Jeff Zucker appears to lie to Congress and Sling implies AT&T lied about their app. And the $9.99 eBook is declared dead by Gizmodo and Rafe declares eInk dead. Just another day on the Internet.

Hey Buzz Crew,


I was listening to episode 1158 and the discussion about secure passwords. The impression I got was that secure and memorable passwords have to be mutually exclusive. Not true, the trick is to use things that you have already memorized. So work with me on this, so let’s say that you like “cherry” as a password, terrible right, well let’s add the last 3 digits of our SSN to the end “cherry659″ ok still not the best but then let’s do some substitution and we sill come up with something great “cH3rr4659″ so now that is a lot more secure, ok, but we don’t want to use the same password at every site, well simple solution for that, give your password a prefix or postfix that is related to the site, again with this you will want to make it non obvious, like “W1tcH3rr4659″ for twitter “t3NccH3rr4659″ for cnet and so on, so then you have broken down your password into parts, some of which you have already memorized which would be hard for someone else to guess or hack. Hope this helps everyone have more secure passwords love the show
