Oh, come on, we also discuss Google's failed attempts to reinvent the mobile phone sales paradigm, unfounded causal links between violent video games and sociopathic behavior, and the dangers of colonization. Good show, guys.

Hey Buzz crew,

I’m not sure what AntBand is smoking, but download-able content (DLC) on the Xbox 360 is NOT tied to an account. I just confirmed this on my Xbox. I logged in with my wife’s account and launched Rock Band 2 and was able to access all the music I’d bought under my account. Just to double check that it wasn’t just this game, I put in GTA4 and was able to play The Ballad of Gay Tony (DLC I also purchased under my account) with no issues. We also buy Live Arcade games all the time and are able to play it using both accounts. In fact, the DLC and Live Arcade games aren’t even tied to the console. I took my Xbox 360 hard drive on vacation with me and when I connected it to my brother’s Xbox 360 I was able to access all my content with no issues. It essentially turned his Xbox into my Xbox. The only thing I had to do was re-authenticate my Netflix streaming.

Just thought I’d try to keep the misinformation to a minimum. Love the show, and while I’m going to miss Tom, I wish him the best over on the TWiT network.


Hey Buzz Crew

I thought Rafe might get a kick out of this article.

If you’ve never heard any of the back story of this whole situation, here goes. Vulcan is a small farming community south of Calgary who have embraced being ‘from another world’. They enjoy and have fun with sharing the same name as the home world of the green blood, pointy ear people from Star Trek.

Last year when the new Star Trek movie was being made the people of Vulcan got in touch with Lenord and asked him to help them bring a big movie premiere to the town. Mr. Spock agreed and to his best abilities he tried getting a movie premiere. In the end the movement failed but the people of Vulcan were still very thankful that Lenord tried.

Fast forward to now where Mr. Nimoy is in Calgary for a comic book convention and has agreed to stop in and visit with the people of Vulcan. There will be a parade in his honor along with a bronze bust unveiled.

I have to be honest if I had the time I’d go to this event because how many people can say they shook Spock’s hand while being on Vulcan…..Alberta….Canada.
