Turns out when we blew up the Moon a few weeks ago we found water! Yay the bottled water companies are presumably planning their trips now. THIS is how we motivate us to get back tot he Moon! We also hear more from old man Murdoch on blocking Google from indexing his newspapers, and Dell launches a smart phone. Does anybody want it?

Hey guys,

I’m sobered up now, and the bet about Project Natal is most definitely on. Um… the thing is, I only intended to make a bet against any buzz host, not every host. It’s possible that I wasn’t exactly clear about that (I can’t imagine why) but I’m not sure I can justify shelling out for 3 or 4 of them, and if I win, then the hassle of ebay or cragislisting the extras ones doesn’t exactly smell of victory.

So since Natali was the first one to accept, then this is my digital handshake. If Project Natal is available at retail on or before November 30th, 2010, I will buy one for her. If it’s not, then she will have to buy one for me. I only ask that you all autograph the box for me (I promise not to sell it!). If Natali decides to back out, then the offer is still on the table for anyone else.


Hi Buzz crew,

Matt from MN.

So whats the difference between what the MPAA is doing to a town and what Microsoft is doing to XBox Live users. There was know judicial over site in either case. Dose this mean that Apple could claim an user violated the ula on a jail broken iPhone and then take away the there right to use Apples OS on there phone?

Love the show!

Hey buzz crew

Just a thought.. If you can use facebook status updates to get yourself out of jail, maybe the next thing will be using your google latitude history to show you weren’t at the scene of a crime.

Just sayin..

Love the show


Hey Buzz Crew -

I am an Apple stock holder (albeit a fairly small investor - but an investor nonetheless) and I am starting to give a second thought to the whole Psystar lawsuit with Apple. Since they are going about legally purchasing licenses and using them to install on other machines, does Apple really have a case against them or not? I'm concerned that if Apple does not win this suit, this will open the floodgates HUGE to making all types of Hackintosh-style computers, thus taking a potentially huge portion of the market away from them and would begin the decline of Apple stock. I know that Apple is more than just an operating system but still…Thoughts? Should I be afraid that Apple might not be able to defend against this?

Thanks guys!
