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!

Hi Buzz Crew,

Just wanted to remind you that there is a very special time occurring tomorrow.

12:34:56 7/8/9

The only time this occurs this century. Unless, of course you follow the d/m/y standard. Then YOUR special time will occur on August 7th!

Thought Tom, in particular would appreciate this!

Can you recommend an online clock site that has the time/date displayed in that format?

Shove the low!

Todd in PEI Canada (where I will experience my special second 4 hours before you do in SF!)

Hello Tom and various rotating Buzzing hosts, I just might have an extreme solution to getting those pesky LinkedIN profiles deleted ... The next time I am over at my Data Center I will see if I can hook a cable off the LinkedIN server farm in the cage next to mine and when the guy comes over to fix it I will hold him hostage until we get some deletions.

Peper 'PKTHerder' The Packet Herder from Denver

(Pronounced like Pepper ... and no I am not a Dr., I was not a Sgt, I don't have a lonely heart, I don't belong to club or a band, and my wife's name nor nickname does not happen to be salt, however, my family does have a six pack of Dr. Pepers. ... Wouldn't you like to be a Peper too?)
