The FAA has asked Boeing to prove that its new connected airplane isn't so connected it can connect hackers. We also discuss why folks think women aren't as good at math when all the women we know are great at math. And we hash over some Apple tablet rumors. I mean, how could we not? We also have special guest host Clayton Morris from Fox News, and Ryan Shrout from PC Perspective.

Hi Buzz Crew,


I have been trying to figure out why I need a tablet when I have an iPhone and a MacBook Pro. John Gruber posted an interesting theory about how the tablet will take over for a laptop. That was a nice idea but I still couldn’t see myself giving up my laptop for a tablet. Then I ran across this article from Slate:

I realized the problem was me. The Jesus Tablet is not a product aimed at techies, it’s a computer for people who find using computers frustrating. The more I think about it the more it makes sense to me. The sub $1000 price point, the iPhone OS, the rumor saying it’s a family computer, the tablet form factor – this will be the first true appliance computer.


Love the show

– Rick
