Ep # Title Original Airdate Link MP3
1219 DARPA requests transformer flying cars. So do we. Monday, May 3, 2010 [1] [2]
The folks who built the Internet are thinking it could be a great idea if flying cars were available in military zones to help extract soldiers quickly from sensitive locations. And they should transform. So, awesome future on our way. Plus, Apple sells 1 million iPads, we try to untangle the h.264 codec mess, and the future of the Internet is cloudy.

1220 There's no place like 127.0.0.1 Tuesday, May 4, 2010 [3] [4]
On today's show, we discuss the coming of the IPv4 black market, throwing more nanodots at the solid-state storage market, and we've got two tech industry shockers: First, Sirius posted a profit, and second: AT&T did a nice thing for a listener. Plus, file-sharers are either the content industry's biggest customers or way worse than bank robbers. You decide.

1221 Unbumble the Internet Wednesday, May 5, 2010 [5] [6]
Phrases are coined left and right on today's show, from our plans to unbumble the Internet to the chat-room created phrase "gestApple," to describe the behavior of everybody's favorite door-busting-down, Ellen-berating iPhone-maker. Plus, "three-day-old tuna." It's a fun one. Also, six things you need to know about Facebook Connections (it violates your privacy six ways to Sunday) and the ensuing storm of tablet competition.

1222 Nobody backs the FCC into a corner Thursday, May 6, 2010 [7] [8]
When backed into a corner, the FCC acts less like a bear and more like a kitten ... which is probably a good thing for the Internet overall. Facebook takes another lump, the HTC Evo shows up for pre-order at The Shack at all places, and Google Chrome is faster than a potato. Well, French fries, to be really accurate.

1223 We'll be watching you Friday, May 7, 2010 [9] [10]
Our theme for today's show? Somebody's watching you, and it ain't just the Police. It's also Facebook and Google, and apparently some people think Net neutrality means the government will be watching you, too. Watch for the Net neutrality 101 rant at the end of the show plus a lot of singing of the "I'll be watching you" song. Because Brian Tong is on. We just hope Sting doesn't sue.

1224 Regulation vibrations Monday, May 10, 2010 [11] [12]
There's all kinds of vibrating on today's episode. from the server farm I imagine sits in Rafe's bedroom, to the oscillations of molecular computing, to the vibrations of sound from our rant about Drive Safe.ly. And Molly's rant on Net Neutrality last Friday also caused some vibrations, and we get to chatting about how much regulation you really need. Oh and don't forget you have no privacy.

1225 Drunk on Facebook and email Tuesday, May 11, 2010 [13] [14]
We hear some pretty bad scare stories about Facebook in this episode. Yes, we know, how could they top the ones you've already heard? trust us they do. or maybe one of our emailers was drunk. You decide. We also finally have a decision (maybe) on the great Natali Project Natal bet. You can't miss this episode!

1226 BP summons the old ones Wednesday, May 12, 2010 [15] [16]
In the Soviet Union oil leaks get nuked. That's not a Yakov Smirnoff joke, it's apparently history. So we discuss whether we should do that in the Gulf of Mexico. But Steve in the chat room points out it might summon Cthullu. We also discuss the impending release of Office 2010, and the appearance of a second lost Apple iPhone 4G prototype. Those people can't keep anything in the lab anymore can they?

1227 The Penul-TOM-ate show Thursday, May 13, 2010 [17] [18]
We just did that to blow out your pun sensors. It's Tom's next-to-last show, and we have a big announcement: Rafe Needleman will be taking over his co-host duties! Listen for more, and also, hear about the escalation of the global thermonuclear patent wars, Adobe's passive-aggressive "attack" on Apple, and why Tom and Molly are now in an Evo love triangle.

1228 We salute you, Tom Merritt Friday, May 14, 2010 [19] [20]
The Buzz Crew gathers into the small studio to roast and toast Tom on his last episode of Buzz Out Loud. You will be missed by many, sir.

1229 Too stupid even for Paramount Monday, May 17, 2010 [21] [22]
Did Paramount actually issue a DMCA takedown to some people who filmed "Transformers 3" while it was being filmed outside their window!? Well, yeah. But Molly thinks that particular brand of stupidity almost had to be an accident. I mean, come on. Also, Google accidentally (!) collected data from open WiFi hotspots while taking pictures of their houses, which kind of feels like a double whammy. Oh, and it's Rafe's first show in the Tom Chair! We call it: Episode 1.

1230 The accumulation of little indignities Tuesday, May 18, 2010 [23] [24]
The indignities start with problem in the New York studio that keep Molly from being visible on today's show, and then end with the realization that all those browser preferences are basically a trackable fingerprint that's further eroding any illusion of online privacy you might have ever had. Also, Google's getting into the phone business. Again.

1231 Seals with frickin' lasers! Wednesday, May 19, 2010 [25] [26]
We wanted Google to announce its set-top box at Google IO today, but what do we get? A new video codec, an app store in Chrome, and (yawn) Google Wave going into open beta. And, oh yeah, homeland security seals (the marine mammals, not the hulky military guys) protecting our harbors.

1232 Declare your porn Thursday, May 20, 2010 [27] [28]
Apparently, Australian border guards can now search your laptops for porn when you enter the country. Um. Ok. As a protest, we suggest everyone flying there just declare that they have porn. Why not? Also, tons of news coming from Google I/O, including the very interesting Google TV and the latest on Android 2.2. Let the waiting begin.

1233 Synthetic life is oh so blue Friday, May 21, 2010 [29] [30]
We have synthetic life! Craig Venter's new bacterium is alive and is blue... because that's what it's programmed to be. Also, Google says Happy 30th Birthday Pacman by putting a playable game into the Google banner. Tech support calls ensue.

1234 Facebook is like a nude beach Monday, May 24, 2010 [31] [32]
Rafe hits us with the best Facebook analogy yet: it's like a nude beach that you have to go to, and also, it rips your clothes off. Also, we get all excited about WebOS in the HP slate until Rafe irrefutably proves how it's not going to work. And then Molly turns into Tom and says a "graduated response" to piracy from ISPs might not be that unacceptable. What!?

1235 Build your own freakin' genome Tuesday, May 25, 2010 [33] [34]
If you don't like broad patents on potentially world-changing scientific developments like scientific genomes, well, then, build your own! Also, does the $97 iPhone 3GS mean the 4G model will be on sale at launch? And we find out why five inches just isn't enough. Sorry.

1236 Let the healing begin Wednesday, May 26, 2010 [35] [36]
Facebook rolls out its new privacy changes live during our show! How nice of them. In a nutshell, near as we can tell, everything is going to be simpler and Facebook is really sorry that they really mean it about the whole privacy thing. And we get that, but we need some time to get over it, you know? Also, the DOJ may be looking into Apple's iTunes monopoly and we have a big discussion about the future of American space shuttle. Get your emails ready now.

1237 Facebook privacy hangover Thursday, May 27, 2010 [37] [38]
Our verdict on Facebook's privacy retool: well ... we're tough graders. Also today, will Steve Ballmer show up at the WWDC keynote? Palm loses its mobile UI design guy to Android, which is good news for Android, but continuing bad news for Palm and WebOS. Also, introducing Darth Vader's Dog.

1238 Smell the light? Friday, May 28, 2010 [39] [40]
On today's show, it turns out flies are getting smell-o-vision before we do. Whatever. Also, the next Apple TV is coming, and you won't believe who thinks it's a dud (hint: Brian Tong is on the show). The iPad launches globally, Skype Mobile is coming to Android just in time to save us from the newly $5-a-month Qik. Plus, Rafe thinks Apple is angling to kill OS X. Find out why.
