That beautiful silvery comet you saw in the sky recently was actually astronaut urine. No joke. We also avoid talking about pee for most of the show. Bing is still on the rise and Facebook is making money. Wow. Things are looking up all over. Just be careful when you look up. There's astronaut pee up there.

Hey Buzzcrew,

I thought you might find this news from Canada interesting. Rogers, one of the biggest carriers in the country is upgrading their network to a 21 Mbps HSPA network. It went live in the major cities up here on the 14th.

Hi Buzz crew,

Andrew from Australia here. I had an interesting conversation with my teenage daughter and her friend yesterday about the number of incidents where they walk into an object or pole while texting. It got me thinking – what if a phone had a proximity sensor similar to a rear parking sensor on your car? That way if you were texting and walking you could be warned by vibration or beeps if you are about to walk into something? What do you think – the next great thing or useless tech?
