As the new owners of the Pirate Bay take over they will have to eventually change things and sell out. So Rafe has dubbed them as Cruiseship Bay. We also discuss the pyrrhic victory of RIAA over Usenet.com and Rafe and Natali hate some more on Verizon.

1010 Who loves the show? Metrologists Thursday, July 2, 2009 [3] [4]
On today's show, we discover that Microsoft is a fine American company that thinks nothing of shafting its highest-paying users or subjecting the entire Internet to multiple episodes of projectile vomiting. And Apple shouldn't be forced by some pissy little upstart to change its perfectly legitimate EULA. And don't even get Cooley STARTED on sending self-replicating nanobots to Mars. Good times all around. Plus: Metrologists!

1011 User clips galore Friday, July 3, 2009 [5] [6]
CNET's U.S. offices are closed today, but we have a special episode for you. We had so many great submissions to our 1,000th episode that we couldn't fit all the clips in the show and do everything else we wanted. So, today you get all the clips--or at least most of them. Every clip sent to us that is usable is in today's montage. We've credited everyone who sent us a clip, even if there was a problem with the submission and we couldn't use it. You're too cool BOL audience. Thanks for listening! And believe us, we know it's long. You don't have to listen to the whole thing if you don't want to. We'll be back with regular episodes Monday.
1012 Disregard this episode Monday, July 6, 2009 [7] [8]
Well, you don't really need to totally disregard this episode, but that is what 10-12 means in CB radio talk. And the news is light. Although we do learn that the head of MI6's Speedo is not a state secret. But it SHOULD be!

1013 21st century episode for the 21st century listener Tuesday, July 7, 2009 [9] [10]
Just like the LG watch we are a 21st century product for the 21st century consumer. Which means we exist now for people who exist now. Sigh. Ryan Block of gdgt joins us to talk about an algorithm to steal your Social Security Number and how Gmail finally came outta beta! Yay! Bad times and good times all in one. Now if only we could get those implants for cell phones. In our neck people, in our neck!

1014 Goobuntu lives Wednesday, July 8, 2009 [11] [12]
On today's Buzz Out Loud, Natali and Molly form a new Amazonian society in advance of the development of artificial sperm. But in much more important news, Google is finally building the thin-client, Netbook-friendly operating system that Molly predicted back in 2005. And poor Yahoo is stuck in 2005: it just announced Search Pad. Aw. Poor Yahoo.

1015 Keep it convenient Thursday, July 9, 2009 [13] [14]
We all get in a big argument over whether all-in-one devices are more convenient than discrete devices. Cooley thinks discrete devices are un-American. I think the opposite. And Molly has the logical arguments for discrete devices. We also find out a Judge has ruled IP addresses can only prove a computer existed and not a person. Good on ya Judge!

1016 Summon the royal Twitterer Friday, July 10, 2009 [15] [16]
The monarchy comes to Twitter, but of course the Queen doesn't sully her fingers on the keyboard, she has a royal twitterer do that. We also discuss whether the new Universal Music Group deal with TuneCore will change the landscape of music. We also absolve North Korea of the botnet.

1018 We're gonna need a bigger bump Tuesday, July 14, 2009 [19] [20]
Bing's June bump won't be enough to take significant share from Google according to JP Morgan analysts. Of course analysts will say anything anyway. And apparently so will we. About Blu-ray. It's kind of a complaining podcast today. But we do find a shining example of good at the end.

1019 What is a browser anyway?! Wednesday, July 15, 2009 [21] [22]
Bill Gates wonders why Google would want to make a browser-based operating system. In fact, he wonders what exactly a browser is, anyway. We also have some crazy Steve Ballmer quotes and some crazy stats of how many people respond to spam.

1020 Perfect, luminous, and lustrous balls Thursday, July 16, 2009 [23] [24]
Who has the most perfect balls in the world? Metrologists. No, seriously. They do. You should see the pictures. This is serious science, people, so quit your childish sniggering. In actual news for the day, Apple misses its chance to make iTunes the world's music software (again) by blocking Pre syncing with its latest iTunes update, and they actually called Microsoft to demand that they take down their Laptop Hunters ads. Wow. Talk about balls.

1021 Bird-eating blob Friday, July 17, 2009 [25] [26]
While Yahoo and Microsoft are flirting again and video game sales are plummeting, it doesn't matter. We are all going to be eaten soon by the blob of organic material floating by Alaska. It ate a bird, people! Get with it! Seattle is next. Oh and we can film our demise with the first 3-D webcam. So that will comfort us during our demise.

1022 Load balancing in space Monday, July 20, 2009 [27] [28]
On the 40th anniversary of the moon landing we sadly report on the state of the broken toilet in the International Space Station. It means astronauts have to split up which toilets they use in order to load balance. No. Seriously. Plus we touch on the Amazon 1984 ironic mistake of the year.

1023 802.11N(ever) Tuesday, July 21, 2009 [29] [30]
Supposedly, we will get finalization on the 802.11N wireless standard in September. Of course, we've been waiting for that for years now, so we're not too confident. We also almost forget we're talking about the new Yahoo home page, and only I am impressed by Microsoft contributing to the Linux Kernel. But, I still think it's cool!

1024 Kilo-sode Wednesday, July 22, 2009 [31] [32]
We're very happy to welcome you to our 1024th episode, which as we know means we will no longer to count the shows in binary on two hands. But that's OK. We will still be doing shows. Because we have more hands. And our eleven-finer listeners can still count on two hands. We also have a date for Windows 7. He's nice. They'll like him.

Zappos has been acquired by Amazon, meaning Amazon will have even more shoes to sell, but also a new corporate culture to integrate with. Windows 7 gets released to manufacturing, meaning it's on its way to you. And Microsoft and UBIsoft are getting into the movie business. Is that a good thing?

1027 What's your major smellfunction? Monday, July 27, 2009 [37] [38]
On today's episode, we invent a new word that we hope will show up on a show like "The Hills" sometime soon. Plus, we get fired up, make terrible jokes about monkeys controlling computers with their brains, and actually work in a tiny bit of news. For example, Apple's doing a tablet and music labels are trying to sell some new weird digital album thing. You might like the "fired up" part better.

Black Hat this week means lots of security vulnerabilities in the news, including the fact that Secure Sockets Layer is now just Sockets Layer thanks to an exploit discovered by Kaminsky and friends. We also decide that you can't fix stupid. Too bad. I wish we could.
