Spoiler: it's Veronica! Also, gambling prostitutes. Ms. Belmont joins us today to talk about Google's abject apologies and speculate about what's inside that Google-Aid they're drinking down there. Plus, we think Windows Phone 7 looks pretty cool despite that odd naming convention, and after that it's all mobile news all the time. --Molly

Out of the blue, XM Radio no longer allows subscribers to stream stations on a computer without paying for a premium account. First they cut the 64bit audio to 32 but and added a premium subscription of 128 bit audio for $3.00 a month.


I called and canceled my subscription for two radios today over this. I imagine there won’t be satellite radio at all for much longer.


Love the Show,

Hi BOL,


Ah you have to love a complete nut job. The South Australian Attourney General is at it again. He is proposed a plan to introduce an R18+ rating system for computer games in Australia. he went on national TV and made the ludicrous claim “that gamers pose a greater risk to his safety than bikies”. What the hell are Tom and Veronica up to? Gambling, prostitution, intimidation … watch out Molly … Tom’s a gamer.
