1239 Google bans Windows Tuesday, June 1, 2010 [1] [2]
If Google told you to jump off a bridge, would you do it? And if you did it, would you seriously try to sue Google for telling you to do it? Oh, America. You're so messed up. In other news today, Google unofficially banned Windows from its campus; anonymous sources say the DOJ is expanding its Apple probe; iPad is totally winning; and nobody quit Facebook on Quit Facebook day. Quelle surprise.

1240 Barnacle on the butt of the internet Wednesday, June 2, 2010 [3] [4]
Now that the Facebook "Like" button is all over the darned Internet, it's turning out to be both a privacy nightmare (shocker) and a security risk, to boot. Look for tortured nautical analogies about halfway through the show. In bigger news, though, Steve Jobs takes the stage at All Things D (we dissect) and AT&T makes big changes to its data plan offerings (we debate).

1241 Facebook needs an adult...and a towel Thursday, June 3, 2010 [5] [6]
Poor Mark Zuckerberg has an almost-literal meltdown on-stage at All Things D and it makes us wonder: is it time for a grownup to take over there? Or just time for Zuck to throw his privacy boss under the bus? Also, HP doesn't want to make smartphones with its new WebOS toy, the Dell Streak continues to baffle, and hey! Globular rovers!

1242 Mucho Bogo, AT&T Friday, June 4, 2010 [7] [8]
You're going to have to listen to the show to understand the evolution of our favorite new phrase, "mucho bogo." Speaking of evolution, the HTC EVO 4G is officially available, just in time to be stomped into dust by the forthcoming iPhone. Maybe. Also, Google's going to hand over its intercepted WiFi data, to make a bad problem worse, and we're giving a big (BIG) no to the Kno.

1243 iPhone 4 unveiled Monday, June 7, 2010 [9] [10]
After two solid hours of live coverage of the Steve Jobs keynote at WWDC, we dissect the announcement and offer you all the takeaways. Oh, and that's not the only tech news. How about HTC Evo's record breaking launch, HP printers getting their own email addresses, and a look into the mysterious insignia printed inside Mark Zuckerberg's sweatshirt.

1244 Several fights with Adam Curry Tuesday, June 8, 2010 [11] [12]
On today's show, Podfather Adam Curry joins us for gloves-off battles about everything from whether Apple should put out the iPhone for Verizon (Adam says no) to what Nokia used to produce (boots, turns out), and just what exactly is wrong with Nokia. Be warned, today's episode pushes the boundary of indeterminate length!

1245 AOL is people! Wednesday, June 9, 2010 [13] [14]
AOL says it's hiring hundreds of journalists, which they seem to do all the time, and then they're never heard from again ... hmm. In other news today, Pulse seems to have a pulse again, while the New York Times is on life support and doesn't even know it, and we're putting together a little hit list of doomed Twitter-related apps. Oh, and if you pirated the "Hurt Locker" movie, we totally know your IP address.

1246 Stick it to the FCC Thursday, June 10, 2010 [15] [16]
On today's episode, we discover that frenemies make for great collusion, everyone at the White House is suddenly sorry they bought all those iPads, the iPhone 4 doesn't actually have an eyeball, and only birds are now allowed to "tweet."Oh, and everything's better if you're naked.

1247 Inside the Coke Zero and Mentos rocket car Friday, June 11, 2010 [17] [18]
On today's show, size matters. You're going to hear that a lot. So, apologies in advance. Also, we have a great interview at the top of the show with Stephen Volz and Fritz Grobe, otherwise known as the Coke and Mentos guys. They've got a rocket car, a Coke Zero contract, and a dream. Also, Goatse wants to clear up some things, Mortal Kombat is back, and once again? Size matters.

1248 AT&T's iPad breach blamestorm Monday, June 14, 2010 [19] [20]
AT&T continues to perfect the art of apologizing without actually apologizing, wherein Goatse blames them right back. Some sporadic updates from E3 and the Microsoft press conference (see http://cnet.com/E3 for more), and we discuss whether the Internet has killed yet another industry: libel lawsuits. Oh, and a Japanese rocket just brought some aliens back from outer space. Awesome. --Molly

1249 Yahoo buys a vowel Tuesday, June 15, 2010 [21] [22]
Flicker.com has finally joined Flickr.com in the Yahoo stable. Also, good luck pre-ordering an iPhone 4 -- AT&T can't keep up with Apple users' demands. And introducing the Mac Shuffle! Sorry, we mean the new Mac Mini.

1250 Sony's special new toy Wednesday, June 16, 2010 [23] [24]
It has a blue ball on top. And the ball changes colors. And an ergonomic design. Stop us if we've covered this before ... it's the Sony Move and it will rock you. Also, is there such a thing as Strike 4? More importantly, is there such a thing as a transgression so serious that it finally causes Apple to fire AT&T once and for all? Because they've gotta be close.

1251 Captain Obvious issues a memo Thursday, June 17, 2010 [25] [26]
From the desk of the big man himself: tablets are gonna be huge. Thanks for that one, boss. Also, iPhone 4 shipments are delayed again, and that doesn't even address the white iPhone 4 issue (where is that thing?). But Android's no help, at least not if you want the HTC Aria, which is all locked down by (you guessed it) AT&T. And in other obvious news, monkeys like TV.

1252 News flash: AT&T is greedy Friday, June 18, 2010 [27] [28]
On today's show, we counted up all the times AT&T is making you pay them to deliver various bits, and frankly, we're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore. Then again, it's not like Verizon's not headed in the same direction, and it's not like our shareholder-dependent capitalist society would have it any other way. (Don't worry, we don't do that for long.) Also, iPhone 4's display may be "gorgeous," but it's the reason for all the production shortages.

1253 Google has an honesty problem Monday, June 21, 2010 [29] [30]
Here's the thing: Google keeps insisting that the data it snared from open WiFi hotspots isn't a big deal, it's useless, it was an accident, and so on. But now, some French investigators discovered that the "useless data" contains obvious passwords and recognizable snippets of email. Which isn't as "useless" as Google suggested, you know? Also, Apple iOS 4 is here; the Nook is, hopefully, resetting e-book reader prices to somewhere they should be; and you decide: Toshiba folding tablet, awesome or DOA? Or both?

1254 BOL: The college years Tuesday, June 22, 2010 [31] [32]
Buzz Out Loud: the podcast that carries you through your formative years and even into college. We've got a great email about it, in fact. Also, we were totally right about the e-book price war--Kindle is now down to $189. Also, Apple will now collect your precise geographic information and share it with its partners. You can't opt out or anything, but hey, at least they let you know. Also: a Molly rant. Like, a real one. It's at the end. Enjoy!

1255 Hands-on with the iPhone 4 Wednesday, June 23, 2010 [33] [34]
We shall call the iPhone 4 "little smudgy" (because Rafe calls his iPad "big smudgy"). Kent German drops by the show to let us get a look at the shiny new toy that comprises, basically, the first half of our broadcast. Then, though, tune in for an update on the Droid X announcement that happened today, Android app privacy concerns, and Facebook's inexorable cruising toward 1 billion users.

1256 iPhone 4 debuts to a chorus of nerds Thursday, June 24, 2010 [35] [36]
Turns out the newborn iPhones 4 might have a touch of the old jaundice -- it's ok, it's pretty common, just try to lay them in direct sunlight for a few hours. (No, don't try that. Just call Apple.) Top story today, though: a victory for the Internet! That victory? YouTube wins against Viacom! (Viacom plans to appeal.) Also, Rafe was totally right about that antenna thing, he would like to you to know, and when it comes to Twitter and Facebook, well: it's war.

1257 Don't hold it that way (that's what Steve said) Friday, June 25, 2010 [37] [38]
Turns out the iPhone grip of death is simply a "fact of life" with all wireless phones. If holding your phone makes your iPhone 4 signal drop dramatically, Apple would like you to know you should either hold it a different way or buy a case. From them. That sounds logical, right? Right. No, thanks. Also, introducing Rafe's new side project, oneleggedgoat.xxx. Enjoy.

1258 Plants vs. Lasers Monday, June 28, 2010 [39] [40]
Look for Brian Tong's new movement on Facebook: pain-ray-free produce. But the rest of us actually think it's kind of cool that the government pain-ray has been re-tasked to warm freezing plants. Also, the Supreme Court has finally ruled in the Bilski patent case, giving us a relatively non-destructive moderate decision. ACTA is ramping up again, and we make a date to go see "The Social Network."

1259 No, YOUR mom plays Farmville Tuesday, June 29, 2010 [41] [42]
Today in tech news, Hulu launches its subscription service and we're thinking about going over the top (maybe next year). Also, Farmville is apparently so prevalent that it forced a Firefox update ... or, put another way, Firefox gets a little bit broken so that Farmville people can be happy. Sheesh. Steve Jobs sends more email, Kindle for Android arrives, and we fight for a while about Froyo.

I think we can all agree on one thing: flying cars may be cool, but it's going to be a slaughter in the skies--at least at first. Also, the Verizon iPhone is here again! Yay! We'll believe it when we see it, just like we'll believe that Google Me is real and a real competitor to Facebook when we see it and when Google manages to understand actual humans and what they want in a social network. But hey, fingers crossed! Special guest, Darren Kitchen of Hak5!
